I have a black tri who will be 2 in May ('09). She has been with me since she was 12 weeks old. I love her with all my heart, she and I have been through alot together. Emma was diagnosed with hip dysplasia when she was five months old. She had bilateral (both hips) triple pelvic osteotomies done between 12/07-3/08. She has recovered well and is able to run and play like a normal dog now. Before her surgeries she would lay around all the time, and didnt run much. Her favorite game is fetch. She is so smart, I have been able to teach her so many things. When she was recovering we would play games while she laid on the floor. I will always have an Aussie in my house. They are unlike any other dog.
