Little guy

I'd like to introduce y'all to the sunshine in my life, my fur baby, LG. We affectionately refer to him as "little guy" or "LG" for short. LG is a male Australian Shepherd and he is ridiculously smart. Sometimes I wonder if he is part human.

LG was a special surprise for A's 30th birthday. I scoured breeders' websites throughout the state trying to find just the right puppy. Ultimately, my aunt found LG at a breeder in San Jose called Ivoryisle. We adopted him almost 6 years ago and I couldn't have even imagined how much I would come to love him.

Although I am bias, I think that LG has the best temperament of any aussie that I've ever met. He is such a lover and so sweet. Struggling with infertility these last few years, there have been many tearful, disappointing days. Thankfully LG knows the best way to cheer me up - a snuggle session. It seems that he can sense when I am down and he just lays beside me and let's me hold him.

I never fancied myself a dog person. But LG has certainly changed that. Everyday that we have with him is a blessing!
I mean seriously! How could you not fall in love with this face?
