Sometimes the best things happen when you least expect them to! The next best thing is being able to go with the flow and let them happen. So here we are with puppy number FIVE!


We weren't actively looking for a puppy...but this little Borderjack's sire and dam have great working drive and awesome temperaments...this was all just too great a combination to pass up! Click here to see photos of mom and dad playing flyball in Las Vegas. As the stars aligned or however things worked out...this little puppy became...Bash.





We usually give our dogs "people" names and Bash is no different...ok, maybe a little different. Bash is an African name that is translated to mean "forerunner". we just like the sound of it  and that it also means PARTY! Plus it's a big sounding name for such a little dog. He's way too cute and has been a "hit" everywhere he goes, with everyone he meets, and with every thing he does!





Bash is very social. He is always up for making a new friend.  Bash sure is a lot of fun. He's always GAME! And he's very sweet...ever ready to play with anyone, anytime, anywhere with any toy.


He's a very focused and serious worker. He takes having fun pretty seriously!He is very intense and learns quickly. He's very prey driven...not much gets by this little squirt. He's super toy and food motivated...always on the go...and is just all around over the top!  But he is also a very sweet and sensitive little boy. He has won everyone over in this house (ok, maybe not so much the cats).
