Our Aussie is a busy girl. She is always keeping track of everyone and everything. Nothing gets past her as she is almost scary smart. Herding dogs are like that. They are born knowing more than many other dogs could possibly learn. It can be exhausting at times. There is the neighbor's white cat that skulks about at the back of our property. There is the weekly garbage truck (make that TWO on recycle days) that tries to come into our turf and must be warned. There is the herding of the donkeys up and down the fence when they are playing on the other side. And poor Zach is herded way more than he can handle. She is a pistol. And we love her.
Sometimes she is quiet.
