Border Aussie A Great Mix

Our Border Aussie is Smarter Than Your Poodle!

Who knows if that is a true statement or not. Every dog is different, has their own characteristics, skill set, and demeanor.

Border Aussie

Our dog Kash, is a Border Aussie, just turned 5 years old, and is a chunk! Everyone says we feed him too much. If you turn him over, you cannot find fat, you can feel his ribs, and he is solid muscle!

Kash the Dog loves to run. Sometimes he just takes off running and will run the perimeter of the yard, around the house and barn, and then come back and sit at your feet like he didn’t even leave!

He has another quirk. When he goes out to pee at night, he will charge all bravado like, barking ferociously, and then when he is satisfied that there is nothing to interrupt his “peeing time” he will then take a whiz!

Is that normal for a Border Aussie mix?  I don’t know. We just think Kash the Dog is wired a little different.

Kash, a Border Aussie mix running like a crazy dog.

Well, I think most Border Aussie mix dogs are pretty smart on their own, but it’s how you teach them and what you teach them that really makes them shine.

They are fiercely loyal. It is hard for them to be away from you, the one they adore, the one they would protect at all cost, so separation anxiety can be an issue with some. Kash has a mild case of it. He howls, barks and carries on until we are out of site, then goes and lays down. A couple times I made him think I left, but I was watching him through a side window. He is a character, no doubt.

Hug your dog, take him/her for a long walk and stop to pet their ears and talk softly to them along the way. Thanks.

PS. I use a Panasonic Lumix camera to get shots of Kash. Here is a link to a similar one that I use.

Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix is Camera Shy

Kash Flow, our Border Collie-Aussie mix dog just hates my Panasonic Lumix Camera

We shopped around for a Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy at all the rescue shelters until we found one. I was sure I knew what I was getting into, after all, I “thought” I was a dog whisperer. Wonkdonkeyhoohoo! – The pup proved that I’m not a dog whisperer!

I did end up taking about 5000 photos of this crazy Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy his first, very trying 6 months of life at our house. I used a Panasonic Lumix FZ35 Digital camera, which was new. The third week, Kash the puppy ran past me, his head went through the camera strap, and snatched the camera right out of my hand!

Off he went running, scared to death of this black thing bouncing behind him with every increasingly fast stride. Through the mud puddle, over the gravel, and landed in the snow bank where I tackled him. The camera was scratched, full of mud and snow, but somehow survived.

That Panasonic Lumix FZ35 has taken over 250,000 photos and still going strong. The Panasonic Lumix that was an earlier model took over 400,000 photos until it developed a brown spot on the inside part of the lens. (maybe it was the full on direct hit by a fire house at a structure fire I was shooting that did it)

Now I have a Panasonic Lumix FZ60K, 16 mega pixel camera. I took 3100 photos on our last vacation and it did awesome! (still have all 3 of my Panasonic cameras and they all still work)
