    She is cute and smart enough, if your not careful you will go from number two to number three in the house.

    What do you mean WILL go, I already got yelled at for correcting the dog...  

    No 3 is not that bad, I've been MUCH lower.  At some point in my life I had the wife, an ex-wife, 2 kids, 1 mother in law, 2 dogs, 3 (more at times) horses, 12 chickens and 6 Guinea Hens ALL OF THEM over me in the food chain...

    Great dogs, have a mate had  couple of Blues, like Border Collies smart as a whip , teach em anything.
    He used to take his duck shooting.
    Had to be careful visiting though as if you let the old girl get behind you she wasn't adverse to giving the back of your calf a nip.

    She just needed you to move along with a little more energy! 😁

    Good looking pup!

    Thanks!  When she came in she was all shy and compliant.  I told my wife a week of better feed and getting comfortable with her surroundings will yield a completely different dog.  Now she’s a full Cattle Dog pup.  All teeth and as hard headed as they make them. 😂

    Our recently deceased cat watched TV quite often and was well behaved when she did. Except for once. She (we) were watching a Yellowstone documentary and when a finch was ruffling it's feathers during spring thaw, this cat threw herself at the TV, toppling the whole mess, cable box and all, from the top of a 4 foot high console. Luckily, the cables were shorter than the height, so it wasn't a major catastrophe.

    This surprised me. I'd always read that neither cats nor dogs had the imagination to see a 2D image as a 3D "thing".

    The other night, while nursing a skin graft on my left had, our "new" cat attacked my leg while I was sound asleep and chomped down pretty hard. She wasn't playing, either. So, instinctively, I threw a left hook at her. That stretched the graft and I woke up quicker than I have in years.

    The "up-side" is I missed. Had I connected with a 12 pound cat, I'd have likely wound up in the ER at 3AM instead of sleeping with one eye open for the next couple nights.

    A month later, she’s looking more like an actual dog!  Twice the size/weight from when we picked her up!! and the fuzzy puppy coat is almost gone.

    That look on her face!
    Something is about to get herded!
    That's all I got.

    She's a sweetie!  My avatar is my Mini (possibly Toy) Aussie and the herding thing is fun to watch, as long as you don't get sued by someone who can't tolerate being ankle-nipped.  My niece's fairly annoying boyfriend fancies himself a breeder of Aussie/Keeshond mixes and he totally does not "get" the herding thing.  Whenever they visit, my 12-pound herding maniac keeps him cornered on the couch the whole time they're here!

    Thanks folks.  Trues to her Heeler nature, a few more play sessions and I'll need a blood transfusion.  My arms look like I lost a few knife fights  :D

    AND she gained 4 pounds last week!  Dad is close to 60 (that is BIG for a Cattle Dog) and mom is no slouch either so she might become a little bruiser!

    You MUST have a secret computer she doesn’t know about because NO man would ever post that if there was ANY chance of it ever being read by wifey!  OR your the bravest guy I’ve ever met... 🤣🤣🤣
