Welcome to Shadowdance
Except for my High School and College years, I’ve never been without a dog at my side. Growing up, my dad raised black Labs and my mom always had some kind of cocker mix. Me? I went for the working dog cross. I didn’t meet my first Aussie until I started riding horses in the late 80’s. It was, as they say, love at first sight… or in my case, bite. Despite getting heeled nearly every time I walked in the barn, I was strangely smitten with the resident Australian Shepherd. Dogs were more budget friendly than horses, so I put my name on the list for a pup and the little speckle-faced boy over there —> chose me.
Flynne was the start of a journey that has taken me places I never would have gone, introduced me to friends I never would have met, and challenged me in ways I never imagined. These dogs have taught me much, and I’m still learning. The fact they even managed to wiggle their ways into my husband’s heart is saying a lot since he was not a dog person when we met. I don’t foresee a time I’ll be without one of these incredible dogs beside me.
