|Just wanted to say Hi...its good to be here with fellow Dals and Dal owners. A few words about my dal, Austin.
I've added some pics of Austin, he is my sleepy, headstrong, smart, mischievous best friend. He loves to sleep and just be around me. Besides the shedding (which is a pain) I've found everything I've read about dals and their temperament to be completely wrong. I suppose it goes to show you that every dog is different. Austin loves kids, would rather sleep than run (except once or twice a day), and as far as being aggressive? Well lets just say that 2 days ago I ran outside because I heard him yelping and crying. He was being chased by a cat, no I didn't make that up. There isn't a mean, or aggressive bone in his body. He loves to be the center of attention. I have an aussie as well and its tough to compare the two. At first I thought he wasn't anywhere near as intelligent, but I figured out that they are about equal. Its just that the aussie uses her brain to figure out how to do what you want her to do, whereas Austin uses his to try to figure out what he can get away with.
He loves new people and especially children. He would make a horrible guard dog (unless the intruder was averse to being licked in the face). One thing he does that I am curious if other dals do as well is squeak. This dog squeaks all the time! Squeaks when he's hungry, squeaks when he's full, squeaks when he wakes up, squeaks all the time! He likes to chase livestock, and get muddy (as you can see from one of his pics). He also likes to sleep like a human (pics) on my bed after he gets muddy. He likes to sit on TOP of his dog house as oppose to inside it. He is deathly afraid of balls-kick balls or, God forbid, those big exercise balls. I have so many stories of funny things he's done (getting in an elevator without me and disappearing to some unknown floor etc). Anyways all in all he's a great dog, a great friend and just hilarious to watch on a daily basis.
