Arrival Story:
It was really a thing of fate. Just days after my darling Lassie passed away, I was browsing the net, and I came across a litter of beautiful Aussie Shepherds. Out of intest, I had a look. And what do you know, they are in my hometown! They were the very first litter of Aussies to be bred north of QLD's capital =o I decided I better phone the lady...I mean, how strange. It turned out it was the ladies very first litter, and only 2 pups were left. One of show quality, and one of pet quality. The show quality one was one the woman was going to be keeping for herself, as he was such a good speciment. But, turned out we breifly knew the breeder from agility contests! She said I could have him =o! "Him" turned out to be Rusty! We took him home on the 11th of May, and I am ever so happy!

Rusty is just wonderful, he is ever so happy, and that little tail of his is always wagging! He is also very obedient.

Amazed At The Ability to Forgive

Rusty's "fun wrecker" here. I am just so surprise at my soulmate's ability to forgive me!! Wow, I didn't deserve his wagging tail and big goofy smile yesterday afternoon.
We were just going out on our daily walk to the beach. I was tired, which means I was incredibly grumpy as well. We only got around the cirner, and Rusty was misbehaving terribly!! He was pulling, jumping, then when he caught sight of little Alfie, he broke loose off the leash. I had to run after him, and grab him. I was scaring everyone around me by yelling at Rusty when I finally caught him, and he pretended I wasn't even there. I was fuming, so I stormed straight home with him. I opened the gate and yelled at him to get in, and he ran in. I sat out the front for some "alone time", to think about what I had just done. After about one minute, I realised what a terrible monster I had turned into. I cried, because I had failed to give my bundle of joy the love that he deserves the past 10 minutes.
I went to the side gate to apologise to my baby boy, expecting him to be scared that all hell would brake loose again. But instead, I saw his appy wagging tail, and big goofy smile right at the gate. He was waiting for me! As soon as he saw me, his body shook so hard he almost fell over. I ran into the back yard and gave him a big bear hug, and apologised. Then we got back to what we do...lets play ball!!
