2 Great Aussies
Sugar & Scooter
I'm convinced... Aussie's are the greatest dogs. My husband and I have had a total of 3. Sam was our first and he just showed up at our home one day as a stray. The owners found him and took him home, but he kept returning to our house. The owners finally asked us if we wanted him and of course we said "yes".
Sam went to work with my husband everyday on the ranch. He never had any training at herding cattle... he was just a natural. Unfortunately, we lost Sam to a tragic accident, and to say the least we were devastated. After a couple of years my husband decided he wanted another Aussie. That's when we got Sugar.
What a cutie she was. I dreaded having a puppy and having to go through all the puppy stages, but she was so easy. She is also a great herder and works her heart out on the ranch. Six months ago we got another Aussie... "Scooter". Same as Sugar... he was just too cute. It's really amazing how their personalities are totally opposite... just like some siblings. But the one thing they have in common is... intelligence, devoted, loving, loyal, and smart. What amazes me is how how well they listen and do what is asked of them.
Although Sugar is just shy of 40 lbs and Scooter has surpassed her, they both think they are lap dogs. I am convinced without a doubt that Aussies are the best dogs.
