"Tulsa" Tornado

Tulsa is the very best friend I could ever ask for. He loves to do everything I do and never wants to be left behind. I am an avid hunter and Tulsa has the same fascination with deer and elk I do. I found this out when I took him with me scouting for the first time. He learned instantly how to track them and lead me to the deer and elk. To him, that was his natural job and I never trained him or expected him to do this. It's funny 'cause he don't care about herding stock, all he cares about is taking me to the deer and elk. The only time this became a problem is when Tulsa smelt elk while driving with the window down. We were on a logging road driving slow when he decided to jump out the window to lead me to elk I couldn't see. I stopped immediately and followed him over a small hill to find a herd of 50 elk. He stopped at the top of the hill, sat, and waited for me to see. At that moment I knew I couldn't ask for a dog more suited for me. It honestly is like he is intuitive towards me and this is why he's my best friend.

I'm sure any Aussie owner knows, no matter how bad your day is you can't wait to get home and see your friend 'cause you know they will make it better. Tulsa has made my life a blessing and cures all my blues. I've been told money can't buy you love. That's not true, cause it cost me $300 and no amount of money could replace him.

I love my "Tulsa Tornado" more than anything!
