Hi, everyone! I've just created this thread for us to discuss our furry, little friends. I know that many of us are very protective of our pets from the bad weather as well. My family owns a little Pomeranian named Jameson. He has been with us for many years and is an integral part of our household. He loves playing in our yard and even howls along during our karaoke weekends. There are times in which we would have to fit him with one of those spray bark collars, especially as we got him as a rescue and he would need it for a smoother training routine. He would come along on our weekend walks in the park and would even chase butterflies for my kidís amusement. Overall, heís a cuddly and loyal friend.

We have a Schnauzer, only got her early in the year, hadn't had a dog in several years.
A very good dog who loves walking in nearby cleared parks and farmland, chasing birds and ducks on the nearby nearly dried out wetlands ,and going on other 4WD paths. (have to watch for snakes now)
Also one cockatiel , hand raised and tame, although we rarely get him out of the cage. His cage mate only died a couple of months ago from old age.

I have red stumpy tail cattle dogs. Have had them for more than 30 years, obviously not the same dogs.

They are similar to a cattle dog but a separate breed. Naturally bob tails. I have found every trait that people love/hate in cattle dogs is more pronounced in a stumpy.

After losing 2 in the last 12 months (one to stroke at 14, the other to snake at 8) it took me 6 months to find the right pup. Bought her sight unseen from the other end of the country after intense discussions with the breeder.

My pup is now 6 months old and shaping up well.

I have used them lightly for shoving stock out of paddocks before but I think anyone who uses dogs all the time would have laughed at me.

I took the pup to a working dog school the other week and she did allright. I would like to continue her training with stock and make her into a 'proper' dog. grin

I don't keep any stock these days apart from a couple of pigs for the freezer and a flock of chooks. Even the horses have moved in with the daughter.

I have been invited out to the property of the lovely people who organised the school to play with their sheep and cattle with them. Just working on consolodating some things before I do. As you probably know for some reason cattle dogs hit the 6 month stage then look at you as if you are speaking a foreign language when given a command that before was perfect.

Why I love them so much and what makes such a challenging dog. They are such good thinkers even if it is mischief they are thinking.

Bart the cat:



Story behind it: He was the neighbour's cat, but spent more time with us growing up. Neighbours moved to a new place some distance way, took the cat with them...but the cat came back. Owners came and got the cat again, but...cat came straight back here again. In the end the owners gave up and we ended up adopting him. He is about 4 years old now.
