Molly (left), and Lucy (right)
Welcome Molly and Lucy, mini australian shepherds, to our Kansas homestead!
These two are sisters, born March 2nd, and are red merles. Molly is the bigger of the two, and I've already nicknamed her Molly the Monster, because she definitely has the upper hand over her sister, Lucy! Being that they are mini aussies, they will only weigh in the 20 to 30 lb range.

We have big plans for these girls in the future... perhaps some agility training and competition, or frisbee training. We'll see which they prefer. :-)
For now, basic puppy training will get them headed in the right direction. We have fresh, new blank palettes to work with, and we want these girls to be polite and well-mannered from the get-go.

There's a whole photo album posted on Facebook, so friend me if you want more puppy love. I'll try to be a better blogger and post frequent updates here for everyone.
The next few months will be lots and lots of fun with these two very smart and intelligent girls!
