All in the Family


Australian Shepherd

We took this picture of our 5 month old little boy at the park during a game of fetch, which he loves to do, especially with his soft frisbee (we call it his 'taco'). We got him from a breeder when he was 7.5 weeks old and it's been quite the experience. My husband had never had a dog before so this was all new to him, but we couldn't ask for a better puppy. He's so easy to train and willing to please; he knows all the basic commands plus many more (he 'dies' when we 'shoot' him and just yesterday he learned 'go to your bed'). He learns new commands/tricks very quickly and will do anything for liver. In fact, if you just hold the treat without saying anything, he'll go through his whole repertoire of tricks, which is quite amusing in itself. Of course he doesn't get rewarded for it but it's fun to do nonetheless. Everybody we encounter compliments his striking good looks (although most ask if he's a Blue Heeler) and other than the cat, everybody loves him (he just wants to play with the cat, but she doesn't want anything to do with him). From the very beginning he wasn't allowed in the bedroom so he'll wait for us patiently and when the cat goes in he'll give up on trying to play with her and go back to one of his many chewtoys. Currently he attends doggy daycare once a week so that he'll continue to build on his good doggy manners and we're halfway through a puppy obedience course. We're hoping to start disc dog with him soon as well. We're looking forward to spending the next 12-15 years with him!
