Mark Weaver Nicco's Owner

Myself and Nicco at Mendicino. March 2009.

Nicco is now 2 yrs and 5 months old. We had lost a Labrador to cancer and were thinking of a smaller dog because of room and I am aging. I knew Aussie's were intelligent and highly energetic before deciding on a new breed. I knew I was in for lots of exercise and considered it keeping me fit. Everyday 2 hrs of bicycle, swimming and frisbee and tug rope. We're always alternating and introducing new challenges when we play. These dogs become easily bored with too much regimen and Nicco lets me know when he's ready for something more challenging. He brings my newspaper in and my slippers to me on command if they are where they're supposed to be. He loves to herds our cats. If one is locked outside he let's us know to let the cat in. We are so absorbed and in love with him. Aussies rule! Mark Weaver.
