jajajaajaja....because you are her leader, her family. That is all. If you want her to be more independent, just give her something else to do that doesn?t include you.

very normal thing for the breed

If you research the breed, you will find that one of the things that they are known for. they are very loving, devoted, and want to please. they follow you around A) to be near you, because they love you, and B) they are looking you you for what they should be doing.

I always tell people if you don't want a dog that lays on your feet, takes a shower with you and helps you make dinner, don't get an Aussie. They are definitely velcro dogs. That is why I love them so much. My 1st Aussie was an Aussie/ Lab mix. He was wonderful! Have fun with your little shadow!

I have two Aussies. I work from home so are with them alot. They both follow me everywhere. They lie under my desk while I work..if I get up they follow me...sit outside the bathroom until I come out...up the stairs, down the stairs, if I am working in garden they lie there and watch me. When my husband is follows him and one follows me. I am not sure how the decide whose turn it is to watch who. They just love being near us. It is just the way the breed is. They love their people.

Our 7-month old Aussie mix is my shadow too! I'm glad to know it is a breed thing. I love it, though sometimes I trip over him, he gets that close!
