How wonderful! I truly believe ppl need a dog in their lives, they are just the best. No offense to cat owner, I'm sure you feel cats are the best also - as it should be. I have never had an Aussie, but I have had two Collies. My 1st one died 12 yrs ago today. He was a Tri-Color and what a baby. He loved to run around, pull the sled, always in motion, but loved to cuddle and sing to me. My 2nd Collie, a Sable & White was from the shelter, he had been mistreated and burned. He ended up being such a lovable baby, I taught him to understand Sign, very smart. He was another boy who loved to run around, until he couldn't anymore. He will be gone 2 yrs in March. I still have my shadow, my Scottie. I would be lost w/o him. As usual, he is right by my feet when I'm on the computer or anywhere else for that matter. I wish you many yrs of love, happiness, and companionship w/ your new little love.
When I was younger, teens and later w/ children, I had several dogs at one time. A lot of fun and excitement, now I am down to one dog and I will probably keep it that way. I think we have had our last 'puppy' but not necessarily our last dog. Don't even want to think about anything happening to my baby. He is so loved and so spoiled. Oh, but he does return it.
God bless. Alice.
LOL, getting a new puppy is way better than winning a $500.00 lottery.. but I wouldn't mind having both.. You got the best of both worlds!!
Enjoy your new furry family members, I couldn't live without mine!!!
