Kash,Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Turns 1 Year Old Today!

Our Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy is growing up!  He is 1 year old today!  It has been a interesting year for us, a challenging year actually.  Kash was a big part of it.

My wife and I missed having a dog.  Our previous dog who also was a Border Collie mix, was paralyzed in the rear legs for the last 7 years of her life, but she taught us many life lessons.  She also changed the way we lived our lives when she became paralyzed.

So, after talking about dogs for months, we (I) started looking online at dogs that needed rescuing.  We decided on a Border Collie-Australian Shepherd mix.  That was in part because of how smart these dogs are, thinking training would be a breeze.

We found North Star Border Collie Rescue online, and they had some Border Collie-Aussie pups available.  We applied, (huge application) and were accepted.  We visited the pups at their foster home.  We originally wanted a female, but Antonio, the runt of the litter seemed to like us the most – and he had a twin brother!

We left there excited and confused.  We wanted a female but…  Shelly decided Antonio was the one that she had a connection with.

After picking our new little puppy up (12 weeks old) we started house(potty) training him as soon as we arrived home.  He learned the very first day and was house-broken without any accidents in the house, and he learned to go out in the field. To this day he will not go to the bathroom in the lawn.

Anyway, for his first birthday Shelly made him a cheesecake!  We will let him celebrate with the delicious birthday cake a couple times. (small servings – we try to feed him very healthy)  We have made him several different homemade dog treats from the recipes in Healthy Dog Food: Dr. Millers Tested Homemade Recipes, and he loves them all!

Kash sure has turned the corner and is on his way to becoming a great dog.  The first few months we struggled to bond with each other.  This puppy challenged me every step of the way.  I’m just glad we stuck with it because now he is such a lover dog and has to be with me all the time.  It really made a difference this summer with Shelly home all day to help with some training and just being with him more.

We are going to try some more dog training now that we are buds.  I just don’t think we spoke each others language until recently.  Now we can communicate with our eyes, hand signals, as well as voice inflection.  He will “get” Shelly on command. (She hates that!)  He stays right close by the house all the time, sleeps either in my office or on the deck most every day.  Although he barks just to hear his mean-ass bark sometimes, I can usually tell what he is trying to say.  He just does it a little too much lately.

At 60 pounds, he is a load.  A fast load!  Really quick!  He has caught a few chipmunks, bit their tail off and then let them go.  He loves the hunt!  Had a hold of a wild turkey and let it go because he didn’t know what to do with such a flapping, squawking thing.  Almost got sprayed by a skunk, but me yelling at the top of my voiced stopped him in the nick of time.

Happy Birthday Kash, and to your brothers and sister too!  Mario, Jake, and Gia, Happy Birthday from Kash.  May you have happy, fulfilled, wonderful years ahead.

This Border Collie-Aussie mix Dog is 50lbs Already!

Kash our Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy is getting bigger every time he wakes up!  We think we should quit feeding him such good quality healthy dog food.  Maybe he would stop growing.  Just kidding.  He is still eating Blue Buffalo Puppy food 3 times a day.

Kash is pure muscle and speed.  He makes go going fast look so darn easy.  He gets from one place to another deceptively fast.  Chipmunks have now almost vacated the area because he catches them and thinks they are toys.  Maybe it just torture in disguise for them teasing him when he is behind the gate and can’t get to them.

We have been experimenting with some homemade dog food recipes lately.  He is a little over 9 months old and we probably won’t keep him on puppy food past a year, so we’re trying to find the right healthy dog food combination.  We want to make homemade dog treats as well.  We are big believers in feeding our dog quality dog food.

There is a really good ebook online called “Healthy Dog Food: Dr. Millers Tested Homemade Recipes” that we purchased for the healthy dog food and treats recipes.  It is a easy to follow, good recipe book for a variety of reasons, and they all aren’t just food. Check it out and you’ll be pleasantly surprised how many you will want to try.

When you start reading this book you’ll know, in a moment, exactly how to feed your dog, easily and inexpensively, to quickly get ASTONISHING results…

You will discover how to unlock your dog’s full potential. Know how to simply skyrocket your dog up to new mind-blowing levels of beauty, health and admiration… 

I highly recommend “Healthy Dog Food: Dr. Millers Tested Homemade Recipes” if you are serious about giving your dog some of the best, healthiest dog food you can.  Don’t you think your dog is worth it.  He trusts you to make the right decision.

Another thing we strive for is regular daily exercise for this critter.  He just needs to stretch out those long freckled legs of his and turn on the jets – often.  Shelly will go about 100 yards down the driveway and I’ll go to the end out the grass in the back.  With Kash by my side, Shelly calls Kash and away he goes, like a bullet shot out of a rifle!  Then I call him…

We put a lot of effort into Kash to make him healthy and strong, and he is.  Good exercise, healthy dog food, and lots of love and attention makes for a loyal, loving pet. (family member)

Race your dog tonight and praise him when he wins.

PS. Remember when I was talking about “how to stop dog from jumping on people“?  Well we almost have that problem solved.  We tried stepping on his back feet when he jumped, didn’t work.  We finally just started pushing his head down when he would try to jump and holding him down while saying “no jump”.  He seldom jumps up on either of us anymore and has really curtailed his jumping on other people.
