If you love Australian Shepherds, want to learn about Australian Shepherds or want to learn about pedigrees this is THE book. Author Paula McDermid does a fabulous job tracing some of the dogs that have impacted the breed and giving their story from the people who knew them and then in a wonderful twist, she then brings these wonderful dogs forward into present generations with wonderful photos of their progeny.This book is a great tool for anyone interested in getting serious about the Australian Shepherd as it is probably the best compilation available in print with generations of dogs in photos. It is also great for the pet owner to see their dog's family. I will be giving a copy of this book to all of of puppy buyers - I cannot wait for the next book!
Tears of happiness were falling around this house last night as I went through this wonderful book and saw photos of many incomparable Australian Shepherds that I had the privilege to see and even touch many years ago. Thank you, Paula, for this beautiful tribute to these gorgeous dogs and for including some of my husband's photographs. He would be so pleased.
Whether you're a newcomer to the breed or a long-time fancier, you are going to love Paula McDermid's book Unforgettable Aussies. Your heart will beat faster and every cell in your body will buzz with energy as hundreds of photographs allow the evolution of the breed to unfold in front of your eyes. Pictures and photographs, as well as conversations with noted breed authorities allow you to see where our foundation dogs came from and when they began to modernize. Unforgettable Aussies celebrates the exceptional dogs who helped to define and shape the Australian Shepherd breed. It belongs on the shelf of every Aussie breeder and owner.
I have been involved in Australian Shepherds for many years. My late husband and I were a ASCA Hall of fame Kennel, and I am a current senior breeder judge for ASCA. We have so many new people coming into our breed, it's nice for them to be able to see some of the foundation Australian shepherds, where it all started. Great job on this book.
This is one of the best books on some of the foundation of our Australian Shepherd Breed. This breed originated in US the book has great pictures from some of the most influential Aussies from the past!
Having been in Aussies for many, many years, I knew most of the foundation dogs on a personal level. I have spent years studying bloodlines and pedigrees. This book is an absolute MUST for anyone in our breed. It's accurate, has no personal bloodline agenda and truly one of the single most available resources for the Aussie breeder, owner or enthusiast.
This is a wonderful book for Aussie lovers and dog lovers alike. Was honored to have my boy and girl make it into the book on page 79! Mickey and Karma. Thank you Paula for doing this book
Great informative book that all new people to the Australian Shepherd breed should read.Thank you Paula for your work.
