Punkin & Boomer
Years ago I had gotten an Australian Shepherd and named her Ginger. I was unfamiliar with the breed at that time. I just thought she was the cutest thing I had ever seen. She was a black and white tri. She just looked like a ball of fur with a head stuck on it. But once I realized how smart she was, it blew me away.
I got her when she was 6 wks old and she lived to be 13 years old. I cried for days when she died. I had to have another one. It took me a long time to find someone that had a litter and didn't want an arm and a leg for them. I found Punkin & Boomer. Sister and brother. I told the breeder I wanted them both and she gave me a good price on them. They are just as smart as my Ginger was.
This breed is so intelligent if you take the time with them. I have to tell one story about Ginger, we went camping and took her with us. I started walking toward the rest rooms and she followed me. I told her to go back and she did, at least, I thought she did. I was in the stall and heard the screen door open and close and thought "another camper" Wrong. It was Ginger. She had hit the screen door with her paw and made the door "pop" open. She stuck her head under the stall and I just laughed at her. I love Aussies. They are very loyal and loving dogs.
