The girls are literally "walking on air" ;-D Thank you for giving Daisy such a great start. We love her already and have recommended you to several other families.

I had to add just a side note...

Most of the time I am forced to reduce or "crop" a photo before adding to this page. I just couldn't bring myself to change it in any way! This for me is what it's all about. Take one child, one adoring puppy, add sunlight, fresh air, love and imagination and it's a perfect day! Thank you all for reproducing this picture over and over for my little creations! Leigh


Hi Leigh,

Thought you might like a few pictures of Bella's first Camping/Boating trip. She absolutely loves the boat! Hope everything is going great with you and your pups.

Christmas in Huntington Beach California! Chevie has had quite the travels in his young life and loves every minute! Never a dull moment!  Looking at your site at how beautiful Simon is! We are just in awe of him! Chevie is 9 months and gets fixed next month can you believe that!? Time has flown! We just wanted to say "hi" and tell you again how much we love him!          Jason, Cassie and Chevie


Hi Leigh! I wanted to share some exciting news with you - Bentley has been certified as a Therapy dog! He has always been so calm and good with people I knew he would be perfect for the role. We will be visiting schools, courthouses, hospitals and nursing homes to start. And as always - I’ll be singing your praises for such an awesome dog!!!

We're getting ready for another summer on the water and wanted to send you some pictures! We can't emagine life without our water bug! Everyone she meets falls in love! Thanks Leigh

January 16th 

This was my first time getting an Australian Shepherd pup through a breeder, having had two rescue Aussies prior.  I chose Longshadow after doing some research, talking to Leigh and then visiting her and her dogs.  I visited in summer, and found her place to be what I imagine Heaven is like … green grass, trees, lots of space, and happy Aussies racing each other around the sunny grounds.  From deposit through puppy pickup day, I absolutely couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience.  Leigh was very knowledgeable and communicative throughout the process - with information, pictures and videos of the newborn pups, answering all my questions.  I wouldn’t hesitate one heartbeat to choose Longshadow if you’re looking for a healthy, happy, well-adjusted Aussie to be your best buddy!

Hi Leigh!
Wanted to send you a few pics of Bo! He is 6 months old today and we cannot be happier with him.
He is such a good, smart, and fearless pup! He loves the water (never had an Aussie who loves water), going on walks, playing in the pool and with the hose and much more.

Thank you again for the perfect dog! We love him!!

Hi Leigh,
It was so good to see you and to bring Bailey by her old birthplace to run with the pack.  She has been the greatest dog imaginable - keeps us company, entertained, and on our toes all the time!  Everyone falls in love with her and vice versa.  Here are some highlight photos of her growing up these last 1.5 years.  Enjoy!
Thanks again and we'll stay in touch!

Hi Leigh! Hope this finds you well! I wanted to send you a couple of pictures of Bentley to assure you he is doing great! We were out on the boat this weekend and as you can tell he is quite the salty dog. The third picture is where he spotted a whale and really had no idea what to do! He is such a good dog - full of energy, very playful but always very calm around kids and other dogs. I take him most places with me so that he is getting a lot of exposure to everything and he is doing awesome!

Take care!! The Hughes Family


Hello Leigh,                                                                                                                      

We wanted to share some pictures of Ivy with you. She is quite an amazing dog! She's so smart, gentle, sweet, funny, confident, affectionate and beautiful. She's independent without being aloof. She loves to play soccer and has made it into her own makeshift version of herding. She and Grace, our other Aussie, have such a sweet bond and they have so much fun together.
Thank you for breeding wonderful dogs!

Hi Leigh,                                                                                                                                    
I just wanted to say thank you so much for bringing Dav and I together. He's adorable, smart, eager to learn,and loves exploring the outdoors as much as I do. His recall was amazing from the start, he gets nothing but compliments on his coat and colors at the dog park, and gets along so well with every other dog and person we've come across. I couldn't ask for a better puppy. Thank you so much!    Brandon and Dav


Hi Leigh,

I just took these photos of Buddy doing his job plowing snow, thought you'd like to see what a beautiful young man he has become. He is such a wonderful companion and oh what a clown!  If you want to add one of these to the pic you already have of him on the 4 wheeler please do so.

Hi Leigh, I don't know if you remember us (I came down with my sister-in-law and 2 daughters) to pick up the puppy in May 2012.  Anyway here are pictures of him at 2 years (March 1 bday).  Just wanted to let you know he is the best dog ever and everyone loves him!  He is so smart, adorable, and well behaved (for most part :)) and he has the funniest personality.  Thanks again!  Lori Stone


Hi Leigh:

I hope you and your family are doing well and enjoying the summer.  Rowdy and I have been busy training in agility and conformation, as well as taking many hikes in the mountains and along beaches.  Last weekend, Rowdy participated in his very first conformation show in Surrey, B. C., sponsored by Pacific Kennel and the CKC, with Teri Morgan as his handler.  We are proud to tell you that he placed first in three events for 15 – 18 month olds, including the sweepstakes, and placed Reserve in the all-Aussie event.  Not bad for a youngster, eh.  Be sure to let Kenzie and Eddie know that they can be proud of their big boy.



Bentley is doing great! He is everything we had hoped he would be! Very social and smart gentle and a crowd pleaser! He is an absolutely awesome boy and we can not thank you enough for the joy and pleasure he brings us

Hey Leigh,We just wanted to take the time to say thank you for our perfect little guy. He is such a wonderful part of our family!

It has been a great year with Saoirse. She is a very funny and affectionate playful and sassy young girl. . Boy can she eat too. She was top of her class in puppy school. She knows about 50 plus English phrases. It is remarkable. I feel very lucky to have gotten such a great dog.     Thanks Leigh

Hi Leigh, It has been awhile since I sent you photos of Cody. He is now over 2 years old, and still adorable as always! Here are a few photos of him all grown up.Hope all is well, and thank you again for everything. If we buy another dog it will be from you! Take care Sincerely,

Samantha, Kyle and Cody

Cynthia and Lulu say Hi! We're now into high mountain search and rescue. All the crew think the world of Lu...She's the love of my life!



Hey Leigh,

It was a great visit! It was fun showing off our boys Cash and Carter. They have really grown since we were there last! We look forward to another romp as soon as Spring springs! thanks for two very wonderful boys. 

                                                                                                                                              Pete and Jen

Oh man I can not begin to tell you how this puppy has stolen our hearts.  EVERYONE says she is the best puppy. She is the cutest, sweetest, smartest pup EVER. Everything is going wonderfully. She is so smart and easy to take care of. She is patient and playful and not intimidated.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Carolyn and Cassie

Leigh, we are enjoying the company of Long Shadow Joey, now named Long Shadow Bullet. The shipment from Seattle to Louisiana was without a hitch. He arrived very well kept and ready for his new home and family. Bullet has been very active and playful with our existing dogs and has been stealing the show from the moment he arrived. He has a very strong personality and absorbs commands quickly and easily. The new addition to our household has been very enjoyable thanks to Long Shadow Aussies.         Paul            


He's getting too big to ride in John's lap! We adore him! Thx Leigh
