Romeo and Floyd
Owning and breeding Aussies is one of the joys of my life. Their intelligence, loyalty and beauty is unsurpassed. I purchased Romeo, a beautiful red tri when he was two. Owning Aussies I have come to realize they are all individuals, but he was so different, I began to wonder if he was a bit slow. So goofy and adoring of me I would sometimes turn and stumble over him. I then began to notice he was watching my every move and trying to understand exactly what I wanted him to do. He began by learning to protect the smaller less aggressive puppies. Soon anyone who was too pushy got a quick smack with his paw or a low growl. He is so orderly he will break up a fight between unfair rivals. Place himself between children and younger Aussies who have not quite learned not to herd them yet. I have now decided he is one of the most intelligent I have run across to this date. Here he is with one of his adoring dachshund fans Floyd.
