All in the Family
Friday Cashew


Australian Shepherd / Border Collie

Simon's Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix mother brought a little pup to a friend's farm to be fed. When our friend fed the pup, she disappeared and returned later with another pup. One by one she brought her whole litter to our friend's farm. One of them looked different from the rest, possibly a different father - an Australian shepherd, we think. My husband rescued him and he became known as Simon. He is the most well behaved dog, obedient, active, calm and sensitive. He is happiest when he gets lots of exercise. We've taken him sheep herding which he loves, and take him for runs and hikes almost every day. He loves horses, and returns to our friend's farm regularly to play with them and his Australian Cattle Dog cousins who still live there. He loves his little sister Cashew and big sister Friday, although he can be grumpy with Friday if she bothers him while he's sleeping. We give him a 'lion cut' in the summer to cool off and his fur grows in fluffy again for the California winter. We love Simon - he's a special boy!

Thanks for the kind words about Zoe. You have a wonderful fur-family, too! Simon's body language particularly reminds me of Zoe's, and I enjoyed all the background information.

He has that "wise" look in his eyes. I just lost my border collie/pointer mix. She had those same eyes. I enjoyed reading your dog profiles!
