Dundee is our two year old Aussie. We adopted him at four months after losing our 11 year old Huskey to a tumor.
Last weekend while lounging around on the bed for a quick nap (with Dundee at my side), he bolted out of the bed like a rocket. As he was leaving I started to hear the tell-tale sound of the cat scratching the back of the couch in the other room. Usually I dart out there at the first sound and chase him away. Despite all my efforts, the cat continues to use the couch as a scratching pole at will. This time, though, Dundee bolted out there and "nosed" him abruptly, sending him scurrying away. My wife saw the whole thing and told me he has been doing this for a while now.
I read that unless you give an Aussie something to do "for you"; they will figure out something to do for you on their own.
Anyway, as funny as this story is, you have to experience this to truly appreciate the humor.
