Sparky, the dorky adolescent.
Now, eleven years later, Sparky may not be the best dog but he's close! He definitely is “The Most Improved” and is the archetypal kid's best friend ... the kid being me.
|Within a few months Sparky had grown into his ears, and now is quite|
the good-looking guy. Here he enjoys the views in eastern Nevada.
Who could not love a dog that plays with empty 5-gallon buckets!
|Sparky the Australian bucket-dog tosses a bucket in the air with his head.|
When it lands on the concrete slab, it makes quite a racket -- which he loves.
|Rolling in leaves is really fun too.|
Sparky is always up for a field trip or a hike, the more remote the better.
Like so many dogs, Sparky is a great role model, often reminding me to enjoy life more.

|After an outing, there's nothing better than a nap!|
