My name is Kaitlin and I live in Coon Rapids. I have one dog and his name is Scout. He is an Australian shepherd/cattle dog mix and has the most beautiful blue merle and black coloring. My husband, Nick, and I got Scout from the Coon Rapids Humane Society when he was 10 months old. I was hesitant at first to get a dog but when Scout crawled into Nick’s lap we knew he was the one. When we first brought Scout home he was very timid and had no idea how to play with toys. We spent hours, especially Nick, trying to get him to play with different toys. Then one day, a couple months later, he started playing with the toys on his own! He didn’t even need us to throw him the toys, he tossed them himself. His favorite thing to do is lay on his back with a toy caught between his front paws. I have to admit he is kind of a klutz and will, more often than not, drop the toys on his face. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. We couldn’t imagine life without our sweet and goofy Scout.
