Our New Family Member

We recently lost our dear Ruby, a red Australian Shepard. As you well know, it’s never easy losing a furry family member.

Since that time, we adopted an Australian Shepard through an Aussie Rescue organization. Our new little guy’s name is Jax, and he is the CUTEST!

Now, Jax is still getting used to the Schulte way of life. And, as a bit of follow-up to our holiday video when you met our animal family, I thought you might like to meet Jax now.

So that’s what this video is all about. This time, there’s no transcript, but I hope you enjoy meeting our black, brown, and white sweet guy. Please help us welcome Jax to Texas.

Leave a comment for me.

  2. Awe, Jax is so pretty. I love Aussies. I have a mini female named CeCe. I love her, she was my lifesaver when Harry died. Welcome Jax and hello…

  18. Congratulations to you and Tom on the addition to your family!. Give Jax a tummy rub and a reassuring kiss to Abbey. I’m sure in time she and Jax will be good buddies.

  22. So sorry that you lost Ruby. How awesome you got to share her life for so many years. I have three Aussies all of which are reaching their geriatric years about the same time. Always tough to bring that “new” dog into their circle. Abby will adjust soon and she and Jax will be great friends. Kind of like when we get a new horse and are trying to form a new partnership. Each day will get better. So please tell Jax hello from me. He is very very handsome. He looks much like my Gus. Enjoy the adventure of your new guy and the journey you are on!! God Bless!

  24. Well, HELLO, Jax! Welcome to your new pack!

  25. Linda Lowrance on Mon, 14th Mar 2022 9:23 am
  26. Can’t beat an Aussie! I’ve rescued several they don’t like to be away from their people but it usually becomes manageable. He is gorgeous and looks to be well bred congratulations!

  28. So sorry to hear about Ruby! We lost our Lab recently and know how hard it is. Welcome to Jax! He’s so adorable! Your cat will have him towing the line in no time!

  30. Thanks for sharing Barb! So sorry for your loss of Ruby. My rescue dogs Cowboy and Hercules and my rescue cat say hello to Jax. Congratulations!!

  32. It’s always a blow to the heart to lose a beloved furry family member. Then we are graced with another cat, dog or horse etc. Welcome Jax!!!
    Love his beautiful face and lovely coat. Enjoy the journey. Much ❤

  33. Linda on Mon, 14th Mar 2022 1:04 pm
  34. Oh Barb…..you and Tom are going to have a blast. Lots of smiles, giggles, and maybe some head scratching as well !! Jax will become so grateful for the home you will bless him with 🙂

  36. What a lovely testament to Ruby and transitioning a new family member. How wonderful for you all and Jax is one lucky young pup to have you for his family! ❤️🐶

  38. So sorry for the loss of your sweet Ruby. It’s so difficult when our precious fur babies leave us. ❤️ I hope Abby is accepting Jax a little better now. Jax is one lucky pup to have landed in the Schulte clan. I’m sure Nic and he will get along. Best of luck with your new pup.

  40. So sorry about Ruby! It’s so very tough to lose a pet and even more heartbreaking for to watch Abby mourn the loss of her friend.
    Welcome Jax!! So happy you adopted another lucky pup! The animals will work it out when they realize there’s enough love to go around!

  42. That love bond between humans and their equine, canine, or other animal species family member can be felt by the reader who endures those same feelings for the animal children in their lives. We are so blessed to love and be loved by them. So happy for the Schulte household🤗

  44. What a great tribute to Ruby and sweet introduction to Jax. Abby and Jax will sort things out. I’m sorry for your loss in the physical. Ruby’s soul is still around you. She’s probably the one who had a hand in bringing Jax to you.

  45. Rebecca on Tue, 15th Mar 2022 12:32 pm
  46. Welcome to Jax. Best wishes to all of the Schulte family in their new adventure. And if Ruby could have talked, I know she would have said, “thank you for my wonderful life with all of you.”

  47. Judy Hudson on Tue, 15th Mar 2022 2:02 pm
  48. I’m so sorry about your beautiful Ruby. She had a wonderful life with you. Thank you for rescuing Jax. It is so nice that you have given Jax a chance at a new life. He is a very handsome gentleman! Abbey is just going to have a great buddy in Jax! Thanks for sharing your family! Hello Jax!!!

  49. Rebecca Gillham on Tue, 15th Mar 2022 2:36 pm
  50. Barb, this was so sweet, I couldn’t stop smiling! I love the way you are. It does my heart good to know how well loved your menagerie is! Thank you so much for the time you spent with me! Best of luck on the ‘Road to the Horse’ judging! I wish I could be your scribe!

  51. Carol on Wed, 16th Mar 2022 4:34 pm
  52. So very sorry to learn of Ruby’s passing, that never gets easier. Jax is GORGEOUS, and hopefully with a little time Abby will come to love him as much as you and Tom do. Wising you all the very BEST!

  53. Gwen on Fri, 18th Mar 2022 8:04 am
  54. Very sorry for the loss of Ruby. Jax is simply beautiful and is blessed to have such a wonderful new family. Thank you for sharing this.

  56. Just watched the nice pics of your new family member.I’m sure Jax will help heal the hole left in heart with Abby’s passing. As a small animal DVM, I couldn’t help noticing Snickers’ left eye.
    It is open and quiet , though, so I assume no current problem. What happened?
    Thank you for all the knowledge you share.
