He's a 4-5 (DM: can't remember which) Miniature American Shepherd, like Pike. He's a red tri, and is a little...special. You see, his breeder sold him to a family to work cattle on their ranch, which he did for several years. Sadly, not only did his owner die and the owner's children didn't want a dog so they returned him to his breeder, he got hurt by a cow. Kicked in the face, specifically. It damaged his left eye severely, leaving him totally blind on that side, caused some nerve damage to his face, and messed him up a bit in the head. Despite all that, he's a wonderful, sweet, tolerant dog. His name is Raoul.
|You can see how his face is a bit sunken in on the side with the bad eye.|

|He's 35lbs, although he's a bit overweight and should probably weigh more like 30lbs.|
Here are some pictures of Pike's mother, father and aunt and uncle (DM:I think, anyway. I may have heard that wrong!). There's no pictures of me or Pike with them, since Mom was more focused on keeping us behaving than getting group pictures.
|Us on the way there.|
|This is Juliet. Mom adores her. She's a blue merle with copper and white trim.|
|Pike's dad, Momo. He's crated because he didn't get along with Raoul. He's a black tri.|
|And again. Isn't she pretty?|
|Pike's mom, Possum. She's a blue merle with white trim, and no copper.|
|Juliet's brother, a red merle with white and copper trim.|
