Our airspace was invaded by a Chinook helicopter, so Blue decided to let the crew know about his displeasure by barking at the helicopter.
The whole situation made me laugh.
You go Blue, you just scared off that military aircraft and they are leaving our airspace.
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.
When Blue is in the back of the yard, he blends in with the fence. It’s kinda of like he has fence camouflage.
I always write with blue ink pens. I think the blue ink stand out more, because most notebooks have black lines. I like how the blue pops out on the page. Also, blue happens to be my favorite color.
It may seem trivial or weird, but I have a strong preference for blue ink pens. Does anyone else feel the same way about their ink color, or is it just me?
Whenever I am traveling, I like to take my dog Blue with me. Blue is not the only dog I have, but he is the only one that travels with me on a regular basis.
Why do I often leave the other dogs at home?
The answer is not based on favoritism. Instead, it is based on the personality of the dog.
Blue enjoys traveling and is not easily frightened by new experiences. Blue is also obedient and has excellent recall, which makes it safer to travel with him.
Before you decide to travel with your dog, consider if the dog will enjoy the trip. How will the dog react to something they have never seen or done before? Also, what is the training and obedience level of the dog? How reliable is the dog when being recalled?
Don’t base your decision to travel with a dog on your desires. Base it on the safety and well being of your dog.
Gwen and I decided to take Joey, Ben, Buddy, and Blue to the dog park.
All of our dogs are well trained. Joey earned the Canine Good Citizen Certification from the American Kennel Club. Blue is in advanced classes. Ben and Buddy are at the intermediate level.
However, sometimes they act like a pack of wild crazy dogs that have never had a day of training in their lives. Today was one of those days.
- They were involved in several disagreements with the other dogs.
- Joey got into a fight.
- Three of the boys managed to escape the park and create a ruckus by running around and barking at a group of people with their dogs.
Due to their behavior, we had to leave the park early. The boys still managed to have a great time and are rather pleased with themselves.
Oh well, they are cute and we still love them.
