Profile: I love Aussies! Cooper and Dudley are the third and fourth Aussies to share my adult life. Intelligent, willing to please their master, challenging at times because they are so smart! Each Aussie is an individual with their own distinctive markings which I enjoy so much about the breed. No two Aussies look alike. I am a fiber artist and love to dye silk, linen, cotton and wool using natural plant materials. Each dye bath comes out vastly different from the last one just like the multitude of Aussie colorings!

The Adventures of Cooper and Dudley! My name is Cooper and I am a nine week old Blue Merle Australian Shepherd puppy. I live with my friends Dudley, Little Kitty, laying hens Jenna, Liz Lemon, Dot Com and Griz. UPDATE on six month old Cooper. He is quite a challenge. Swallowed the catnip mouse which cost me $750 in vet bills to 'fish' it out through his mouth. Then, a month ago, at five months old, he swallowed five (5) yes, five ounce lead fishing weight balls. My husband was cleaning out his boat and put a large tray of his fishing weights on the floor of the garage and for whatever reason...we will never know, Cooper, unknown to me, swallowed five...that is 25 ounces of lead in his small puppy stomach...or one pound 9 ounces of lead. These are the size of a quarter. He threw up his dinner that evening and having googled his last 'accident' with the catnip mouse, I knew that he might have swallowed something else that is not edible. Found one five ounce fishing weight ball on the floor of the garage and my lightbulb went off. Next morning at the vets it was revealed he swallowed not just one but five...why did he stop at five? Why not six? Cost me another $750 at the vets to have those fished out through his mouth. If Cooper were not such a sweet puppy he would not be very popular at our home and may have found himself at the shelter!View Profile
Hi! My name is Dudley and I am one of Coopers best friends. We live together and have many adventures in our large backyard. We would love to play with Little Kitty, but, found out early on that he has sharp claws and doesn't really want to become friends. Please visit my album and see my photo with Cooper and Santa Sean. I asked Santa for chew toys because I love to steal my 'moms' shoes and chew on them!View Profile
