The following is an excerpt from an article written by Dann Fisher, the owner of a pup from a Cowgirl/Chico litter, which he purchased following the loss of his beloved dog Tess:
I could dwell on my loss or I could honor Tess’ memory by giving the opportunities to another. It would be harder to stay in the darkness with the life affirming joy and energy of a young dog present. So I began searching the web for stockdog breeders, intent on finding another Aussie. After a very deliberate search, I contacted Rita Love at Cowboy Love Aussies in Oklahoma. Rita had puppies with fabulous pedigrees available. After an exchange of pictures and information, Shannon and I settled on a red and white male puppy and made arrangements with Rita.
