Simba during the 2009 CDCA National Specialty weekend. He was not too interested in herding sheep, he was more interested in sniffing the area.

Simba loves playing with Libby and her pups (Goldie and Johnny at 13wks). The way Simba plays with the pups, you'd think that he was one of the pups in this litter...he is very playful yet very gentle with the pups. But when it comes to making sure the pups are safe from harm, Simba is their #1 protector. Simba is one-of-a-kind and we love him!

Simba's first week in MN.
Simba arrived at our home on the eve on December 14th, 2006. He had been on a long two day journey coming from Israel all the way to MN. When we picked him up at the airport, this tired 3 month old pup came out of his crate wagging his tail and giving all of us kisses. Later in the evening he fell asleep several times in our kids' laps. This puppy has a tremendous temperament and a sweet loving personality. He has already captured our hearts.
Simba meeting new friends on his first night in MN...what a sweet and tired boy!
