Welcome to the new Capricorn Australian Shepherds website!
This site re-design is looooooong overdue, but you know how it is when life gets in the way. Technology has advanced a lot since the last time I played with html tags!
This new site is my first venture into the world of WordPress. It felt a little constrictive at first, but I’m getting used to it. I imagine it would totally rock if I had actual coding skills, but for now, we’ll just have to do what we can with what we’ve got. 🙂
I’m planning to do an occasional blog when the fancy strikes me. Topics are TBD, but will probably be mostly about dog-related topics and/or judging Aussies and/or what awesome restaurants & bars I have stumbled across in my travels. For those of you who don’t know me well, I tend to be a bit of a foodie, and I enjoy a good craft cocktail as well. The beauty of this forum is that I get to express my opinions, because it’s my blog; you are free to have your own opinions, and you are free to *respectfully* share them in the discussion areas. But if you can’t be nice, I will delete you.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new site!
In a fit of nostalgia, I went digging through my old videos this weekend, watching my old dogs and remembering. I sure do miss them. It got me to thinking that I should put some clips of them up on my site. They say a picture is worth a thousand words; I have to imagine that, even if they aren’t HD, these old VHS and miniDV tapes must go some way beyond that to describe these animals that I loved. Heck, if more people did the same, imagine how much more informed we’d all be in shopping for puppies or stud dogs!
To my friends I’ve had the privilege of hanging out with at dog shows for the last 30 years: if you’re cruising my site, I hope you enjoy these little trips down memory lane!
