Arrival Story:
My beloved Border Collie, Tigger, had died the month before and I was heartbroken. Needing canine company again I did an internet search and found her at a shelter. Her original name was "Twister," which gives an idea how agile and fast she is, but I wanted a name that emphasized her jumping ability and sounded "softer." She lay on the passenger seat and stared at me all the way home. I think we both knew how much we needed each other.

The shelter listed her as an Australian Shepherd mix, the Saluki part is a guess on my part. She does not have the thick coat of an Australian Shepherd and is thin and "leggy." She works stock by chasing and barking, and is also able to "block" them much like a Quarter Horse. She LOVES to run, especially after Jack rabbits.

How "Tag" works.

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

~~~~~~Wallaby’s 7 facts~~~~~~

1 – I’m a picky eater, at least when it comes to dog food.

2 – My favorite place to visit is Kanab, Utah, with my mom’s friends while she volunteers at Best Friends.

3 – Hauser, my 100 lb black lab “boyfriend,” is stronger than me but I’m much faster. So I can wear him out playing chase and then beat him at wrestling.

4 – I don’t swim; just get in the water up to my belly on hot days. When Hauser fetches a stick thrown in the river I wait by the shore to ambush him.

5 – I’m very affectionate.

6 – The summer heat bothers me, so I’m supposed to get clipped next Wednesday. I’ll post some new pictures afterward.

7 – I have a dog bed in the bedroom and a folded blanket under the kitchen table. From the blanket I can keep track of what’s going on in the house and it’s a sort of den for me under the table.
