Flo JoPassed over the Rainbow Bridge—October 16, 2017
Flo Jo was one of our first dogs we bought in 2010. She is 13 years old and a veteran. She retired this past May and has adjusted nicely to being a couch potato. she worked like a true Rock Star. Being the oldest, she is definitely the matriarch of the bunch. She is the ultimate working dog and was named after Florence Griffith Joyner, the track and field star. In her day she was fast as the wind!!! Flo Jo survived a cancer bout in 2013 and even worked all through her chemo treatments. She is truly a Survivor. She is very social and our little Diva. She is truly a special dog.
Katie was also one of our first dogs we purchased in 2010. She is 12 years old and she is fully retired but still loves to go out with us for ride alongs and work when she wants to. She is the biggest sweetie and cuddler and has never met anyone she does not like. She is a fantastic swimmer and loves to put her head under water. Her favorite past time is playing Frisbee and she is very good at it.
We acquired Faye in the fall of 2012. She is 8 years old and our little red headed girl. Faye is such a gentle and sweet dog but her drive is intense and she will not stop until her job is finished. She is a very strong swimmer and can swim for quite a while, sometimes just for fun as she loves to be in the water. Faye works hard, plays hard and sleeps hard.
Bond – “James Bond”Deputy
We acquired Bond in 2013. Our big guy is an awesome dog and very chill and quiet. But when he turns on the work switch, he is one of the most intense dogs we have seen. He has only one speed and that is 90 miles an hour. He is very affectionate but definitely a Daddy’s boy. He is our only male and his harem love him.
Annie is our newest deputy having arrived in April of 2015. She is three years old and an April Fools baby. She is so small that we call her our “Peanut”. She is still in training as she still has some skills to master but she is learning fast. She is a ball of energy and like Bond, fast as lightning. She is a curious girl that is always on the move.
Stormie came to us in January of 2016. She is 6 years old and a total sweetheart. She is very high energy and a driven dog that loves to herd, including the other dogs especially while they are playing frisbee. She is a tireless swimmer and will not leave the pond until every goose is out of there. She is so smart and very methodical in the water when swimming after the geese. She loves to be dried off after her swims and will automatically roll over on her back so you can towel dry her belly.
Dixie came to us in February of 2016. She is the baby of our group turning 2 years old this year. She is our little Dixie Dickens as she can get into her fair share of mischief by stealing things out of the truck or your bag etc… She is so playful and loves to play frisbee with a passion (mostly keep away though). She is very affectionate and wants attention and loving as often as she can get it. She is an awesome stalker and is learning to love the water. She is just a sweetheart.
Pearl came to us in May of 2016. She is 6 years old. She is the most affectionate and loving dog I have every seen. She kisses everybody and constantly kisses all the other dogs as well. She is very obedient and just wants to please. She can also be a little sensitive. She is a swimming machine. She bounces around like Tigger and can be a big goofball.
We acquired Faith in 2016. She is 5 years old and a giant ball of energy. Her nickname is "tigger" for the way she is constantly bouncing around. Don't let that fool you, she turns all that energy into intense perseverance when she gets her eyes on geese. Nothing makes her happier than getting the job done.
We acquired Nick in 2016. Our big guy is an awesome dog with quite the personality. He is 2 years old and a lean mean goose chasing machine. Don't let his size fool you, he is always looking to make new friends, four-legged or two. This daddy's boy loves to work and be told he has done a good job.
Baby J, as she is also known is our newest deputy. She is just two years old and quite a powerhouse. She is a total sweetheart and quite the cuddlebug, when I can get her to stop moving for a minute. Josie is still all puppy but turns on the intensity when it is work time. She loves to swim after the geese and when they are gone she loves to frolic in the water. She is a great listener and very loyal when she bonds with you. When not working, Josie loves to play with her tennis ball or play frisbee. Her best buddies are Dixie, Nick, and Stormie. And when they have free time, they will wrestle together for hours.
