This site documents the first year of Tyler's life; from adopted puppy to Service Dog in training. Then my life took a turn when I obtained Collie, a "Lassie" type rough collie. The paternal side of Tyler raised her like his own child. But Collie needed to herd  something instead of neighborhood women with children. Along came the sheep. When a coyote was shot across the street it was apparent the sheep needed a protector which led to Angel the Livestock Guardian dog joining us. Angel was born with sheep and lives with them; she is not a "pet dog." At first Collie could dominate the Great Pyrennes puppy. She was delighted to have a dog under her because she had been under Tyler all her life. But by 6 months Angel was her size and Collie was on her back held in a throat bite. Collie needed back up which is why Millie joined the pack. Four dogs now fill my days with adventures I'll share with you in the new wing of Tyler's website. Hope you enjoy it.

July, 2009: Tyler got adopted!
A German Shepherd Dog Angel was sent to protect Rusty & the cats—

First the senior cat, Dustball, crept in close for a look while Tyler slept on the kitchen floor. Then she turned and scampered off.

Rusty made dinner as Tyler slept quietly. Poor thing was exhausted from his rescue, operation, and being driven 90 miles to a new home.

What a beautiful young shepherd dog!

Calm, dignified.
Tyler had been rescued by Reggie Conley from a back yard breeder. He is a pure German Shepherd, but the owner could not sell him because the dog had an umbilical hernia; she didn't want the vet bills to correct it. Enter Angel Reggie Conley who paid for all the needed vet work, then brought him to me when Tyler was 4 1/2 months old.

Tyler and I fell in love before we even met. That is because Heaven had made us for each other. We are like soul mates only different species.

I had wanted a dog for many years, but had never had all my ducks lined up in a row until spring of 2009. As much as I wanted a dog I knew how much responsibility was required. I knew how much money it would take to have a dog, too.

Bobcat was so curious!
"What was a dog?!"
he wondered.

Rusty said they were getting a big cat called a dog. Well, it was the biggest cat Bobcat had ever seen.

Tyler was calm & gentle! "Come here, let me put your cone on. Good boy!"

He had to stop biting at his unhealed operation where the doctor neutered him and fixed his umbilical hernia.
Tyler was starting to like living at this house!
