OK, about my tail!! Now, some of you who see my picture may think to yourself (if you're feeling like a snarky little doggie today)...."I thought Australian Shepherd purebreds had no tail?" Well, you are kinda right and kinda wrong.
Most Aussies with no tail means their tail was cropped (cut off....ewwww!) when they were pups to meet something called "conformation" or whatever by those who care about stuff like that. BUT, I was born with a gorgeous, plumey tail, I came to my Mom and Dad's with the same tail and Mom and Dad would never cut if off...they think it's beautiful and (let's face it), nobody's perfect, right? So, thankfully, I have my tail and my parents just love to see it wagging real hard whenever they approach me...cool, huh? Tell me I don't know how to play them like a violin!!
It's hard on Mom's vacuum cleaner, but that's ok 'cause I HATE the vacuum cleaner anyway!! Plus that, I have such a great Dad that he does most of the vacuuming 'cause he's stronger than Mom. Mom has the job of brushing out all the briars and debris I pick up when my Dad takes me out...so, it's pretty even, and I actually don't shed much (can you believe that?).
Well, we had a big outing today and my Mom's pretty tired, so I guess I'll waddle on into bed now (it's 2am...early for me and Mom).
Check you guys later....WOOF, WOOF~~!
