Border Collie-Aussie Named Kash Flow Rocks!

Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog Travels Two Lane Roads – With Style!

Border Collie Aussie
Kash Flow making a splash!

Kash, our Border Collie-Aussie mix dog, goes into vacation mode the minute we leave on our epic two lane road adventures. It’s like he has 2 distinct personalities, one is the normal at home, go “100 miles an hour” dog, and the other is the calm, well behaved vacation dog!

The sly ambush mode!

You know Border Collie-Aussie mix dogs are extremely smart. They learn good habits really fast, and can learn bad ones just as fast if you are not careful. We invested in a dog training course because this dog gave me fits as a puppy. Best move we made!

Kash the Dog is so gentle to other living creatures.

The Raccoon in the House Story!

He isn’t kind to raccoons though. Maybe he thought he was protecting me, but when we went out to pee one night, I opened the door and there was a raccoon, 3 feet away! Without hesitation Kash attacked that critter and they tangled on the deck, going around the corner! I yelled at him top let it go! He did.

When my wife came running to see what was happening, I opened the door and grabbed a flashlight to look for our dog. When I went out the door, the wounded raccoon scooted into the house, right past my leg and over top of my wife’s feet!

Now I hate to admit it, but I have a little fear of raccoons – especially wounded ones in my house! Well I finally tracked it down under the bed, pushed it out with a walking stick, and it walked right out the door it came in! Limping all the way.

We checked Kash the Dog over real good and then real good again. We just didn’t want there to be any bites or flesh wounds. (he has a current rabies shot). He was good. The raccoon, not so much..

This Border Collie-Aussie has no fear – except snakes and frogs!

 

The raccoon had a bad ending. It only made it to the bushes by the deck, where Kash tore it up again and I had to put it down. Sadly, this was how it ended.

This Border Collie-Aussie Loves to Swim!

Anyway, Kash has traveled all across the USA o two lane roads with us the last 5 summers. He has been swimming in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi River, Missouri, Columbia, Hoh, Skagit, Klamath, St. Lawrence Seaway, Hudson, and many, many more rivers, lakes and ponds!

Me and my pal Kash Flow!

I’m telling you, he is such a fantastic, loyal, well-behaved dog, and I have to give credit to the online dog training course we invested in. So if you have, or are thinking about getting a Border Collie-Aussie, make sure you are prepared. Invest in a little extra help dog training, even if it’s just to learn some tips, it’s worth it

Until next time…

Hug your dog,

Kash, Border Collie-Aussie Mix Travels Well

Kash, Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Took A Trip

Border Collie-Aussie dogs are smart. They are also know for being rambunctious and fidgety. Not one to sit still long periods.

Well Kash the Dog goes into what we call vacation mode! He changes from his never stop moving self, to a calm, very good passenger/traveler who doesn’t bark unless provoked.

We travel two lane roads when we go on vacation. This August we went from South Bend, IN to Bend, OR on highway US 20. It took us right through Yellowstone Park. Of course, our Border Collie-Aussie dog Kash was with us!

We would make it a daily goal to find a clean, clear body of water for Kash to swim in. He has been swimming all over the United States and even once in Canada! He has been in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, all the Great Lakes, and countless rivers and lakes.

Kash loves to swim. He can’t wait for you to throw a stick! Sometimes he makes believe you threw the stick and charges out into the water like he is fetching something – just for the heck of it!

Kash the Dog likes to charge waves rolling in with his mouth wide open. What a shock when he does that in the ocean and gets a mouth full of salt water! He is used to swimming in Lake Michigan, nice “fresh” water. His nose wrinkles up and he spits and sputters with salt water.

He does not like the ocean salt water!

All in all, we always seem to have a good time on vacation. It really helps when your dog is well behaved. I attribute it to the online dog training course we invested in when he was a puppy. You can check the dog training course out here. Best Dog Training Course

Border Collie Aussies are smart. Sometimes too smart. They can learn bad behavior as easy as good behavior. So train your Border Collie-Aussie dog right and you will have a lifetime of awesome, loyal companionship from your dog.

Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dogs. Awesome?

Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog Rocks!

Kash Flow, our dog, who is a Border Collie-Aussie mix critter has more Australian Shepherd traits than Border Collie. He is built wide in the butt, weighs between 60 and 70 pounds, and is solid muscle.

Kash has that ultra high pitch, annoying, brain piercing bark that Australian Shepherds seem to have. At one point before we got the bark under control (somewhat) his barking would hurt Shelly’s ears so bad it would bring her to tears! Now, he controls his bark judiciously.

Australian Shepherd
High pitched bark drives squirrel up a tree!

Kash the Dog is a fantastic companion/family member. He does not stray out of the yard, is a great watch dog, and listens pretty good. It was not always that way. (other than always staying in the yard)

His favorite spot to lay and watch is on our deck. That is home base to him. This is his command center where he strategizes his attacks on squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits. He never hurts them, only wants to play with them and learn about them. (I swear).

My wife was slowed down with a medical condition just a while back. Now, Kash the Dog adores Shelly to the max! So when she was down in bed, he would lay right next to the bed. When she was healing and taking slow short walks, he would slow his pace to hers and walk so passionately with her. He IS a good dog!

Australian Shepherd

Dog Training Courses needed for sure!

So, I know that Border Collie-Aussie mix dogs are one of the smartest dogs around, but Kash seems to be wired a little different. He learns by just talking to him as if he knows the English language. I only wish we knew how to train him better. We invested in some dog training courses early on that have helped tremendously.

This is all probably stuff I have talked about in the past, but it is such a joy to have a dog that doesn’t wander, listens to commands, a fierce protector, and a lover dog to top it off!

Hug your dog, they are family!

Kash the Dog a Border Collie-Aussie Mix Flies

Kash the Dog Flies Over The Snow!

Kash the Dog
Dog flies over snow.

Kash the Dog, our Border Collie-Aussie mix four year old dog thinks he heard a mouse under the snow! He jumped from our plowed driveway into the deep snow. He came up with just a snout full of snow!

If you have followed this blog from the start, you will remember what a difficult time we had with this collie mix dog. We don’t think he is wired correctly. (maybe he is and we aren’t) Anyway, he is a very good dog, well behaved for the most part, but still has a small jumping issue.

We invested in a few dog training courses which were very helpful and highly recommend them for this type of dog. We still work on dog training weekly.

Kash the Dog
Handsome Collie Mix

Now Kash the Dog is smart. There is no doubt about it! He once watched me install a latch on our gate and the minute I was finished, he went right up to the latch and tried to open it by flipping it with his nose!

But for some reason (maybe because he is a herder) he does not track animals like rabbits, squirrels or other critters by smell. He just hasn’t got that talent which I thought would be a natural for any dog.

He is a sight hunter. He has what seems to be an uncanny ability to see the slightest movement, or notice if something is new or out of place. He is always checking my eyes to see if I see something. We seem to communicate with our eyes. It’s kinda weird how we do that. My wife gets mad because she thinks we gang up on her.

Well if you have a puppy, young dog, or a head-strong dog, you might want to look into this pretty darn good dog training course. It’s an online dog training course, easy to learn from, and you will be surprised at how quickly your dog “just gets it”!

Get more information

Well the snow is too deep right now for both Kash the Dog and I to go hiking in, so we make several trips up and down our 600 foot driveway. Kash did make it out to the “squirrel tree” out in the swamp, a 900 foot round trip, and he was panting when he got back!

He will probably take a nap in his large orthopedic dog bed Furhaven Orthopedic Mattress Pet Bed, Large, Chocolate, for Dogs and Cats New Price: $29.99 Old Price: $29.99 You Save: ! He sure does like that bed!

Hope for a early spring!

Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dogs Are the Best!

Kash, our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog is so Darn Good!

We searched specifically for a Border Collie-Aussie mix dog when we finally decided to adopt another dog after our beloved Kozmo, the wheelchair dog died.

Kozmo, our previous dog was such a great companion and taught both me and my wife a lot about life. She was part Border Collie and part Brittany Spaniel. I did a lot of research on Border Collies and Australian Shepherd dog because of their intelligence and loyalty.

Border Collie-Aussie

Kash the Dog, if you have been reading this blog since the day we brought him home, will know that we had a lot of trouble getting Kash to bond with us. He would bite us, bark with a brain piercing shrillness that drove us nuts. And he jumped on anybody that came over, including older frail people.

We even took the drastic step of getting a shock-bark collar that we only used twice. (thank goodness) He did learn something from that collar though. Me too! It’s shocking, I know. (it’s for sale)

Kash has become an incredible loving dog, where before his first 6 months with us, he wouldn’t even stay in the same room with you. Didn’t want to sit and be petted, and would rather bite your hand than have you rub his ears!

Now he comes right up to you and sits right against your leg, or puts his head in your lap, waiting for you to pet him, or, play with him. He is just a lover dog now.

The Border Collie-Aussie mix “smartness” is really becoming evident now. He is in this fantastic learning mode (2-1/2 years old) where he listens to what you have to say, especially if you are teaching him something. He wants to learn, almost begs to learn what ever you will teach him.

He loves to eat. Cleans his bowl at every meal. We feed him Blue Buffalo dry food, mix it with some healthy homemade dog food from our dog food recipe book that helped us immensely. We found it online and recommend it to any dog lover. More information is available at this link Homemade Dog Food Recipes

We have taken Kash on our vacations and he travels well. He has been to several states and swims in all of them. We always try to find a great swimming hole for Kash to swim. I didn’t know that Border Collie-Aussies love the water so much! He has 2 webbed toes on each front paw. I don’t know if that is normal or not. I suspect not.

 

Bayer K9 Advantix II Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs

We have been using Bayer K9 Advantix on Kash because of the ticks around our house and woods. It has been a very good product for us and Kash seems OK with it. When we tell him it’s time for his medicine, he gets up on the end of the couch and sits still until we get it all on. He is such a good dog.

Well, that it for now,

Hug your dog,

Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dogs Have Thin Skin

“Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dogs Have Thin Skin” said the vet!

I do think there is some truth to that. Kash seems to get small sores every time he goes through the swamp water. I do attribute that to thin skin or sensitive skin. Even though Kash, who is Border Collie-Aussie mix, has fine hair close to his skin, a double coat the vet said. He has a full luxurious coat that protects his skin topside.

Border Collie-Aussie Mix

Kash the Dog

Kash is a happy dog, so he doesn’t have some of the weird neurotic tendencies of some dogs of the same breeds. I think we were lucky that way. He is still a stinker sometimes, but for the most part he is a wonderful, smart, loving dog.

As any of you that have been following this blog and the life of Kash as he has been growing up, you know we had our challenges. So any people that have thoughts of adopting a Border Collie-Aussie mix dog, be ready for an smart energetic dog that wants to please.

Read this about Border Collies below to give you an idea of what these dogs are all about.

From Wikipedia: Border Collie

Border Collies make very demanding, energetic pets that are better off in households that can provide them with plenty of play and exercise with humans or other dogs. Due to their demanding personalities and need for mental stimulation and exercise, many border collies develop neurotic behaviors in households that are not able to provide for their needs.

They are infamous for chewing holes in walls, biting and chewing on furniture such as chairs and table legs and digging holes out of boredom. As a result, an alarming number of border collies end up in shelters and rescues every year.

One of the prime reasons for getting rid of a border collie is their unsuitability for families with small children, cats, and other dogs, due to their intense desire to herd; this was bred into them for hundreds of years and still one of their chief uses outside the household.”

Kash the Dog - Border Collie-Aussie Mix

Collie Mix

I take Kash for a walk every day, through rain, shine, blizzard, heat, lightning, or heavy storms, just because he needs it and we love to go, period. (Kash is not bothered by thunder and lightning!)

Well, I know this was a scattered thought post, but I needed to let you know we are still here.

Hug your pooch,

Border Collie-Aussie Dog Chases Coyote. Coyote Faster

Kash, Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix is Fast

But the coyote was faster! Kash, being part Border Collie and part Australian Shepherd is not only smart, but I thought VERY fast. Yet, when seeing Kash take off through the woods after a coyote, and watching just how much of a blur the coyote was, it was no contest.

Border Collie-AussieKash

I think Kash could hold his own with one coyote, but often there are more. They have killed most all of the rabbits we used to have, but not the squirrels. There used to be a LOT of rabbits until the yotes came in. Even the wild cats we used to see have disappeared.

At 65 pounds of speed and muscle, he would give a good ripping to a 35-40lb coyote, if he had to. He would probably rather play with it, romping around in the woods, chasing each other.

Every day we feed the birds and squirrels sunflower seeds. I say to Kash, “time to feed the birds”, and he waits by the door for me. I open the door and out he goes, right to the big metal garbage can where we store our sunflower seeds. Then it’s off to the bird feeder to fill it up. We have a lot of birds that feed here every day.

Border Collie-Aussie Mix

Is there an optimum food for Border Collie-Aussie dogs? If there was, what would it be? What would the protein to carbohydrate percentage be? I have often wondered these things, as I know a bit about dog foods.

We feed our dog Blue Buffalo Chicken w/Brown Rice dry food. That is what he has been fed since we brought him home. He is so darn healthy and vibrant, I don’t know if I would change. We do feed him homemade dog food occasionally, we got the healthy dog food recipes from a ebook we bought online. I highly recommend this book if you want some good homemade dog food recipes and even healthy dog snack recipes.

Dr. Millers Healthy Dog Food – Homemade Dog Food Recipes

One more thing today. If you have a herding dog, or a collie type dog, and are about to buy some heartworm medicine, ask your vet about the recent findings that some herding dogs can be adversely affected by the ingredients in the heartworm medicine. I asked my vet and she was surprised that I knew about it, as it has just been discovered not too long ago.

Well, get out there and play with your dog,

Thomas and Kash

We Saw a Border Collie-Aussie Just Like Our Dog Kash!

Kash, Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog…

We saw another dog that looked just like Kash. When asked what kind of dog it was, they said a “red” Australian Shepherd.  Hmmm… We were told that Kash was a Border Collie-Aussie mix, but boy they sure look a lot alike.

We know Kash has a twin brother that looks just like him. Almost identical, at least the last time we saw him, and his pictures.  His name is Jake.  A really nice couple adopted him soon after we adopted Kash from The North Star Border Collie Rescue organization.

Kash the Dog

We have a lot of Blue Racer snakes on what we call The Blue Racer Ranch, where we live. Kash doesn’t care to much for them. His first encounter with one was this spring. There were two of them in the grass, Kash saw one slither away and quickly moved in to see where it went. He didn’t even see the other snake that he was almost standing over, until it took off. He totally freaked and jumped about 10 feet backwards! He got behind my legs and started barking madly at it. Funny dog. He still gets freaked when he sees one.

Blue Racer at Blue Racer Ranch

Blue Racer at Blue Racer Ranch

The unofficial Michigan State record for the length of a blue racer is 75.2 inches. We have found skins that are 98 inches and 94 inches. I know I have seen one about a foot longer than that even. They are huge. I have gotten close enough to take pictures of their eyeballs!

We weighed Kash the other day. He is 62 pounds of pure playfulness! He still eats his Blue Buffalo dry dog food. We also feed him quality homemade dog food and homemade dog treats that we make. We bought a great ebook with dog food recipes that are easy to make, healthy, and Kash loves the variety with his regular food.

Shelly, my wife, had neck surgery last week. When she came home from the hospital two days later, he was so, so happy to see her! Kash noticed the neck brace immediately and wanted to smell it. He knew right away that something was different. Kash just hangs out with her and walks at her speed, like he is a caregiver. He is such a smart dog.

Don’t forget to hug your dog today!

Border Collie-Aussie Named Kash Chases Weasel

Kash, our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Rescue Dog, chased a weasel.

As quick as Kash is, he did not catch the fleet of foot weasel even though it was carrying a dead chipmunk!  I had spotted the weasel earlier from the window while in the house.  We don’t see too many weasels, in fact this is only the 3rd or 4th one in 18+ years living here.

The weasel pulled the dead chipmunk down a chipmunk hole with Kash right on his heals. Earlier in the week I had noticed several bird nests I had been watching, and they all were ripped apart, eggs and babies gone. I told my wife I thought it was either raccoons or a weasel. I think I was right.

Collie Mix

Kash has changed his mind and decided he does not like to ride in the Buick. When we go for any length of a ride, we usually take the van, it is just more convenient.  But once in a while we take the Buick because it rides nice and gets better gas mileage. Now he won’t get in the Buick by himself, he has to be forced in by picking him up and plopping him in the seat.  What’s up with that?

He still seems to be growing.  Everybody keeps remarking on how big he is getting.  Kash is 60lbs plus, but I cannot feel any fat on him.  He has not been getting the full out running exercise he used to, but that is his choice. We go for walks everyday in the woods, he just doesn’t run around like a nut anymore.

He still eats really good quality healthy dog food.  We make him some homemade dog food about once a month to give him some variety. We chose a different healthy recipe from the homemade dog food recipe book we bought online. It is the best! It has about 245 recipes in it. Highly recommended.

A Border Collie-Aussie mix dog.

Kash the Dog

Kash loves his dog beds. He has 4 of them. Spoiled little critter!  He does need his naps everyday, or he gets slightly cranky, just like a human. (me)  He can get so comfortable-looking all curled up, or laying on his back, legs splayed out, showing his hairy penis to the world. He can be a weird dog, but can’t we all?

Just a little tidbit of information about some notable Border Collies.

Border Collies of note include:

  • Rico, who was studied for recognising up to 200 objects by name. Another Border Collie, Betsy, was found to have a vocabulary of over 300 words.[43]
  • As of 2010, the Border Collie Chaser has a vocabulary of 1022 words and is able to recognise objects by the groups they belong to.[44]
  • Shep, who was the long-term companion to John Noakes of the BBC‘s Blue Peter and Meg, companion of Matt Baker, former presenter of the same show.
  • Striker, who is the current Guinness World Record holder for “Fastest Car Window Opened by a Dog” at 11.34 seconds.[45]
  • Jean, a.k.a. the Vitagraph Dog who was the first canine movie star (owned and trained by Laurence Trimble)
  • Rex and Fly are two Border Collies that appeared in the 1995 film Babe.
  • Jag, the “First Dog” of Montana, frequently accompanies Governor Brian Schweitzer.
  • Bandit, the stray Scottish border collie from TV series Little House on the Prairie was Laura Ingalls‘ second dog on the show. Laura was reluctant to make friends with Bandit as she missed first dog Jack, but she soon loved Bandit dearly. Bandit premiered in the second season of the show and remained a steady extra for the next three seasons.
  • Murray, Border Collie Mix in the hit show Mad About You
  • Borrowed from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Border_Collie

Well now that summer is upon us, the tick season is starting. We have had the least amount of ticks found this year, but that doesn’t mean you should not protect your pet. Lyme disease can be a bad, bad thing for your dog.  So protect your pet with a good tick preventative medicine.

Well time to take Kash for a walk, camera in hand, out to the woods.

Sincerely,

Thomas & Kash

Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog and a Frog

Kash the Border Collie-Aussie mix dog plays with frogs.

When we go for walks like we do every day, Kash always sneaks up on the frogs in the ponds.  He is somewhat timid of them, but then again he stalks them.  He gets right up to them and tries to touch noses with them before they jump.

 

Border Collie-Aussie mix dog sniffs bullfrog

Kash loves to mess with the frogs and they mess with him.  The frogs are so used to him stalking them and knowing he jumps back when they jump, the frogs don’t panic too quick.

Tonight we were walking between the gourd garden area and the little woods between us and the neighbors, when I saw some large, fresh deer tracks in the mud.  I thought the deer may have passed through earlier in the day, probably in the morning.  We came out into the meadow with Kash out in front of me, and there was a huge deer (buck?).

Kash was nonchalantly trotting right at him and didn’t even see him until I called his name.  Then the deer let out a loud snort that stopped Kash in his tracks!  The deer took off, I stared yelling to Kash to “come”, and away he went.  He didn’t go too far and came trotting back. (good dog!). Must be that dog training course did some good!

Earlier in the day we went for a walk and he cornered a opossum under the boardwalk that winds through the swamp.  We poked at him and made the opossum snarl and bare his teeth just to let him know he was trespassing.  I told Kash we needed to let him be and he followed me back to the house without protest.  More goodness from the dog training course.

Collie mix dog named Kash sniffs a mothCollie Mix Dog

Kash is a curious dog.  He always wants to sniff whatever I have in my hand.  He knows when I have something unusual and will follow me and nudge me until I let him smell whatever it is that I have.  He didn’t like the piece of snake skin that I had yesterday.

When I opened my hand and he took a sniff, he jumped back about 5 feet and started juking, jiving and then barking.  He is kinda scared of snakes.  Probably because of the size of the first one he saw.  It was a seven foot Blue Racer.  He saw one slither into the weeds and ran to see what it was.  He didn’t even see the one he was standing over in the grass, until it bolted and totally freaked Kash out!

Blue Racer snake freaks Kash the Dog out

Kash the Dog doesn’t like snakes.  If he smells one, Kash gets all jumpy and nervous.  Touch his back leg or butt with a twig and he jumps straight up.  It is so funny, but I don’t do it very often for fear of scarring him for life. The toad already did that to him as a pup!

Well it’s time for me to stir the pot.  I’m simmering some homemade dog food that we make once a month to give Kash some variety in his food schedule.  The homemade dog food recipe book we got online has the most fantastic healthy recipes. Evenhomemade dog snack recipes.  Worth checking out – if you really love and care for your dog. (I know you love your dog)

Until another time, hug your dog,

Thomas and Kash
