Australian Cattle Dog by Hilary Lewis

Hilary Lewis describes Australian Cattle Dogs as loyal, tenacious, intelligent, independent, active, hard working, protective, courageous, possessive, suspicious of strangers, aloof, stubborn, and as having a dominate personality streak.

Australian Cattle dogs are great, but before you decide to adopt one you need to know what to expect.  They are not easy dogs.  Without proper training, an Australian Cattle Dog can wreak havoc in your life.

If you are considering adopting an Australian Cattle Dog, I highly recommend this book.

I have an Australian Cattle Dog, so I was laughing and shacking my head the whole time I was reading it.

 

Alligator Alley

Alligator Alley is an animal sanctuary near Mobile, Alabama.  The animals were rescued from poor living conditions and placed in the sanctuary.

As the name applies, there are a lot of alligators; however, they also have snakes, lizards, and turtles.

This is a fun place to visit.  You can feed the alligators, touch some of the animals, and learn a lot about reptiles in general.
