Default Our boy has a new dog.....worked hard to pay for her .

My 11 year old stepson has wanted a female registered Australian Cattle dog ( Blue Heeler ) for a long time.
Not a cheap dog around here...$500-$600 is the average.
He said he would raise the money for her himself if we let him get one.

So to earn the money, he worked most of the summer on our property in Northern Idaho..running our backhoe units on various projects.

Plus other jobs for the neighbors.
He split a lot of firewood, fixed fencing ,helped me build a shed, cleared / burned a lot of brush and removed stumps,and much more.
All this this was besides his normal chores.

He worked with an amazing level of dedication,energy and joy..... each day a step closer to getting his dog.
His mother and I found our own lives uplifted with our boys dedication to his goal.
A steadfast path of hard work with good humor despite more than a few setbacks.
