He's a Weasel!
My Blue Merle boy (now 3yrs) was named Weasel by my girlfriend for good reason! When we are eating he comes over and lays down very close. Just in case any food should happen his way. LOL when I tell him to go lie down, he forgets the go part.
His parents were working cattle dogs in Bakersfield and I had the chance to watch them work a calf, Amazing!
I had been looking/shopping for an Aussie for three months, with prices between $800 to $1200. when I saw an ad in Craigs list for Aussie pups for $100!!
I was in Santa Monica and I dropped everything and drove to Bakersfield. By the time I got there the other two had been adopted. But the remaining pup was TOO cute so home we went!
He has grown into a wonderful, smart, loving bubba of an Aussie. (See enclosed photo) he has learned to keep the free range cattle off our land, and many other services does he perform for us.
I can't imagine life without him now!
