    Excellent!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    When I lived in Australia as a kid (1971--73) there was a TON of those dogs there. You hardly see them here. You should see them work sheep and cattle.....really amazing!!;c

    Right on!!

    You know, in that first pic she DOES look a bit unbalanced...;g ;f ;a ;f

    Seriously, though, I just posted a pic of a local litter, and since I have 'first pick' I will soon have one of these intelligent little nutjobs running around my place as well!

    I agree; they aren't too common here in the US. Which is a shame. Smart, loyal, and fast as a bullet!

    Once you train them away from nipping and 'herding', that is! ;Q ;)

    She tries to heard people some, It's pretty easy to get her to stop. The only down side to teaching her to fetch is that she always wants you to throw somthing for her. She will stack her slimy toys on top of you until you throw one for her, and she dosen't get tired. If she does get winded, like after running for 30min strait (Yes they are very fast dogs) she'll drink some water lay down for 15min and be as good as new. VERY hyper but fun dogs.;f

    i can spot an aussie a mile away by

    a) their very distinctive eyes

    b) their white patch on the chest

    and..my g/f's is a GREAT dog. she lives to please. if you run and let her chase you she'll jump and try to 'herd' you by nipping at your elbows...not a big deal, she doesn't clamp down or hurt ya, just lets you know she can.

    also a pretty good protective dog. shes TINY for her 65 lbs. not much bigger than my Mother's sheltie, but about 3 times the weight...ALL MUSCLE. 'nuff said ;)
