G'day from a Red Cloud Kelpie from WA

My name is Rosie G.  

Born on a farm in Quindanning, Western Australia, my Mum brought me over to Maui, Hawaii November 2006 when I was 2.  When I was 4 my Mum said I could have my own website cuz I had ALOT to say!  Got one and at 11,  I wrote a book!  Called it Rosie's Perspective. Now I'm having a boat built in my name!  SV Rosie G (sv stands for sailing vessel, cuz it sails)

I'm a singing star!  For those of you who know me, my new talent won't surprise you..cuz  I'm really clever, aren't I? Just  can't help myself - makes me feel great!  I have to sing!  Blew Mum and  Dad over, cuz they weren't expecting it!    I sing in the car cruising  down the road in the back seat.  Check me out HERE!.

Gotta go - time for tucker.  Hope you like what you see!  In the meantime, sending you licks and scratches! And remember, whenever you can, go walk about and eat all the scraps!  
And don't forget to check out my book or be my friend on Facebook or follow me on Instagram @rosie_g12.

Loves to you all.

Rosie G


Which one do you feed?


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.  He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. 

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’ The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?

The old Cherokee simply replied,  

'The  one you feed.’

Rosie's Reflections


Don't let the big things get you down.

Rosie's Exercise


We gotta exercise!

Don't know about you humans, but we 

get agitated if we can't run, play, jump - 

you know, have a good time! 

For me, I gotta run. Love to roundup...anything! 
I take it very seriously.  

I mean business - as you can see...

Don't be lazy!


Rosie's beauty secrets


Everyone comments on my shiny coat and bright eyes.  It's cuz I'm really  healthy! My mum feeds me this stuff called glyco-nutrients.  Big word.   Wouldn't have a clue what it means but she says it's food to help my cells sniff out each other to find out whether they are bad or not.  

Boy  you can tell alot from a sniff!

Anyway, she says it's for humans but I'm worth it and she's been giving it to me since I was a little squirt!

Anyway, if you want more energy, run faster and be able to bug the  budgerard out of your parents, eat good, drink lots of water and get lots of sleep

Rosie's tips on beauty sleep



You know you can sleep anywhere when you're absolutely buggered. 
But when you want a goodnight's sleep, and you can get away with it, finding a cozy and comfy place to sleep is important cuz you want to be your best the next day.

Want to smell good?


Take a bath!

Crickey! Did I say that! Oh yuk.

My best mate, Claire Belle and me

We loved hanging out together.  Still are. 

She always let me be alpha.

My mate Kirk

You know, it's always good to be enthusiastic about life, even when you're watching yourself.

This is my mate Kirk keeping an eye on her winning a huge competition.

Rosie loved creating sand art.  It looks like she is just digging but it is much more than that.
