Dio's Shep 1902432 viewsPhotographs taken in 1902, "Shep" (1895-1905) owned by Dio Reinig. Caption on the back reads, "Shep the dog Dio and Eddie were so fond of". Ms. Mary Norton says, "Shep on the ladder and chair was a working stockdog for my great grandparents in Snoqualmie, Washington. Dio Reinig was my grandfather and Eddie his younger brother. Shep would travel in a canoe across the Snoqualmie River to the summer diary pasture, and would leap out, swim ashore, have the herd of cattle rounded up by the time the canoe landed. Later, in his nineties, my grandfather would tell my sister and I the stories of his childhood, including those of 'Shep'. Was Shep an Australian Shepherd? I don't know, but he was a working farm dog, trick dog and a well loved family pet. Photos courtesy Mary Norton

Silverton Bobbie - 1923486 viewsIn the summer of 1923, when Bobbie was two years old, he was taken by his owners Frank and Elizabeth Brazier, owner of the Reo Cafe, in Silverton, Oregon, on a trip back east, where the Braziers planned to visit their families. In Wolcott, Indiana Bobbie disappeared. After a frantic but fruitless search the braziers gave up and continued on their journey. Nine weeks after their departure from Silverton the braziers returned, convinced they would never see Bobbie again. Then on a sunny mid-winter day in 1924, Bobbie reappeared. He was thin, exhausted, his paws worn to the nub, and he was in pain, but he returned home. An exhaustive search by the Oregon Humane Society proved Bobbie had traveled 3,000 miles on his homeward quest. Featured in Ripley's Believe or Not.
Smoky - 1940509 viewsA quote from Erin Phelps about her parents dog, Smoky, "My parents, Bob and Lois Bishop, were feeding bummer lambs. They and this one little tiny dog, ran thousands of sheep on government lease land, what is now Ginger Rogers Ranch, and the Espourteille Ranch also thousand more acres. Smoky knew every lamb and mommy. Here she wants my mother to leave this baby lamb alone. Fortunately, the lambs desire for the bottle won out."
