Traveler is a well traveled Australian Koolie. He flew over off of a ranch in Australia at nine weeks old and spent three days in four different airports to get to his new home in Illinois. From the moment I got to the airport to pick him up and he just wiggled while shoving his little pointy anteater nose towards me I was hooked. He's my constant companion and ready to conquer the world or at least have the best time possible with it. Everything he does it's done with a grin, a jump and a "life is FUN" attitude. If it can be accomplished at 30 mph with lots of leaps and bounds it will be done that way whether or not required. From day one he chose to sleep on top of tables instead of under, on top of his crate instead of in. Counters are no issue and neither are the back of couches. Why walk on the floor when you can get around without ever touching it? Cars and trucks are just a new jungle gym. From nine weeks he's had no fear and an extreme love of people, kids and other animals. He would go to local concerts and wrestle with the older kids, snuggle with the little ones, sit next to the older folk just to go home and hang off the neck of his big sister who has the tolerance of a saint. His versatility, biddability and love of training has blown me away and makes him a joy to work and train with. He's so intuitive it sometimes feels like he reads my mind and when we work his whole self is focused on me and what we're doing. I've yet to see him tired, even after bike rides, fetch uphill, flirt pole, tug or 5 hours off leash hiking and swimming, but he's willing to lay down or play quietly when I'm being too boring for him. He has brought so much joy, laughter and quite a few head shakes with a hidden grin to me and life is just that much brighter with him in it
