Our HomeAspenRain Fields is located in the Bellingham area of the Pacific Northwest. We reside on our multi-acre property in the beautiful Squalicum Valley off Mt. Baker highway.

Looking for a cooler atmosphere we retired from the San Diego area in search of time to fulfill some of our lifetime dreams. With the children now adults raising their own families, our pups have become our new-found family members, best friends and devoted companions. We bred and raised standard Aussies for 15 years and found that these dogs now came in "smaller packages". Obviously we were delighted. Thus, seven years ago we acquired Meeko and Autumn as our first Miniature breeding pair. Our stock has expanded to include both toys and miniatures from various breeding lines throughout
the United States.

Our dogs are well-socialized, quite intelligent and very affectionate. They are raised in our home and property with outings to parks, trails and hikes common in the Northwest. We strive for conformation, temperament, and most of all happy and healthy companions. We are hoping to enter the show arena in the future with some of our newest acquisitions.

Please take this invitation to explore the website and become acquainted with our family of furry little ones. Our site is constantly updated with new pictures , puppies and information as
time allows.

As a convenience we can arrange trips to deliver throughout Western Washington, and also ship pups (with restrictions - see purchasing info) throughout the US and Canada. We make stops along the I-5 corridor from Bellingham to Marysville. Visitors are always welcome at our little farm with advance notification.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share our extended family with you.
