An Aussie-loving friend and I were discussing the joys of living with and loving Australian Shepherds. Having lived with a few and fully understanding the gifts and challenges they can present, I think about whether I’d get another Aussie at this point in my life or something a little less energetic. And I really don’t know… It’s hard to ever go back once you know the intelligence level of these guys.
Maybe I should just start a “Rent-an-Aussie” business for all those Aussie lovers who know and love the breed, but don’t have the space or time or energy to live with one full-time. Then my Aussies would have many jobs to keep their minds and bodies busy. I could rent by the hour. Any takers? : )
