German Shepherd Tyler was born March, 2009. He is huge; 30" at the shoulders, weighs 120 lbs. He is a Neutered male and legally registered Service Dog who goes everywhere with me.

Collie is a rough collie called a "Lassie type" Born September 2010, a spayed female, 24" tall & about 75 lbs.

A natural therapy dog who seeks out anyone needing a fluffy collie hug. 
Living in the Central Valley, a land of cattle ranches, orchards, and dairy farms. Tyler spars with the Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) who lives with our sheep. While this is daily "dog martial arts" fun, it's not appropriate behavior at a dog park. Snarling, growling, barking, tackling, practice biting...maybe OK at home but not at Point Isabel where I have to take him periodically to re-learn polite dog social skills.

Angel the livestock guardian is a good match for Tyler. She is his size and can outrun him.

This is how Tyler loses his polite dog social skills...

You can't do this at the dog park!

When Tyler gets too rough Collie will grab his collar to yank him back!

Millie, the little bitch, likes to attack Angel's rear legs when she can.

This is how dogs really like to play.

And it's loud, too!

Look at  Angel's face. I think she has a giant crush on big boy Tyler.

Angel can outrun Tyler, and if she wanted she could do serious damage to him. Instead she loves his attention.

Angel loves Tyler big time!

Millie is the fastest of all my dogs. She runs for the pure joy of it with her seemingly effortless rocking gallup.

Now she is always a bit leary of Angel.  Millie is careful not to walk past Angel too closely from behind.

Angel was so violent (red zone!) I had rush in to kick her hard in the chest to get her off. Millie had discovered a dead gopher belonging to Angel, triggering the instinctive response. Luckily the collie wasn't hurt.
