I originally wrote to this site about a year ago when Ozzy was a little puppy. Now he's about 16 months and full grown at just about 50 pounds. We love going to the dog park where he gets to play with all his buddies and I get to talk with all my new friends that I've met there.
Having a dog, especially an Aussie, has been wonderful. He's always standing up or jumping at the kitchen get when I get home, excited to go out for a walk and some other fun. We are going to be starting some agility classes soon to give him some excercise during the cold New England winters.
We also visit my brother, who has his half sister, a black tri named Nora. It's funny, when I mention Nora's name, Ozzy knows who I am talking about and starts jumping up and down in circles because he can't wait to play.
I've attached a picture from the dog park one day when it was a little messy. He found a hole that was mostly mud and water and decided to stick his whole body in there head first. I've never seen him more proud of himself as when he was covered in mud. Luckily, the park has a resevoir about 5 minutes into the woods, so my car didn't get too dirty.
