An Australian Shepard named Maple
With just a week to go 'til spring there was anticipation in the air at Humber Trails Conservation Area on the Mill Road, south of the King Road on Sunday. Above, this beautiful Australian Shepard (or Australian Sheep Dog) was on a ramble with its owners, the Dobsons, well-known King Township and Nobleton-area residents. Just for the record, this breed was not developed in Australia, but rather on ranches in the western United States in the early 1800s. Below are other shots of Humber Trails where winter has faded and the new season beckons.
