Border Collie Aussie Mix = Smart!

Our Border Collie Aussie is Smart!

Kash the Dog, our Border Collie Aussie mix pooch had a impromptu play session with a 1-2 week old fawn in the front field of the Blue Racer Ranch!

Shelly was walking with him when he quickly darted up the trail and when she got around the corner, Kash and the fawn were sniffing each other, tails just a wagging! Then they started to play, chasing each other until Shelly thought it a good idea to stop it before the momma deer came busting over.

Now fast forward to today. A light snow fell, it was a crisp 21 degrees, and absolutely quiet this morning as we headed out the trail towards the woods out back.

I noticed a very fresh set of deer tracks and low and behold, so did Kash! He never pays any attention to deer tracks. These were different. He slowly and methodically tracked this deer. I came around the corner and there he was, staring at a young deer that was staring right back at him, maybe 30-40 feet away.

This is the fawn he played with earlier in the early summer. (Taken with a Panasonic Lumix)

Normally he barks and chases deer for about 50 feet and then comes right back. This time he started wagging his tail and turned to look at me to make sure I was seeing this deer! Then he turned and came running back to me making his happy noise. The deer then turned and loped off across the field, stopping once to look back.

I’m sure they must have recognized each other and knew there was no threat. It sure was a very cool, memorable moment to watch this unfold before my eyes. Isn’t it neat how animals can react to each other. I believe it is because Kash is an intelligent dog!

The photos here are taken with a Panasonic Lumix camera. I am a huge believer in these cameras. Highly recommended! Having taken well over 1.3 million digital photos with three different Panasonic Lumix cameras, I can tell you they take a beating and still work like a charm.

So, not only am I a believer in my camera, I am a believer in my loyal Border Collie Aussie dog, Kash.  Such a good boy! (although he is a biscuit whore)

Pet your dog, pay attention to him/her. And if you are entertaining the thought of getting a dog, I recommend trying to find a rescue Border Collie Aussie. If trained right, they are the best dogs!

Sincerely,

Thomas & Kash

Kash the Dog, a Border Collie-Aussie mix dog is handsome too!

Kash was not always a pleasant dog. We had issues bonding the first six months. Almost brought him back to the rescue organization a half dozen times those first six months!

Then like a switch flipped and he became the well behaved lover dog and loyal companion that he is today. That dog training course that we bought online paid off.

Kash the Dog travels with us on our two lane road adventures when we take off in the van. He has his own memory foam bed, special harness, food bowls, and healthy dog snacks.

He has swam in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, all five Great Lakes, the Mississippi River, Columbia River, and many,many lakes, rivers and ponds across the country.

I take a lot of digital photos of interesting items, scenic vistas, and really cool vintage roadside attractions on our two lane road adventures. I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ60 and love it. It’s lightweight, has a great telephoto, and can take a beating.

I usually take close to 4000 photos a trip and then it takes me days and days to go through them and pick out the ones I like. I love to share them on photo sites. It’s a passion, not a money maker!

Kash the Dog has his own website called KashtheDog.com. He is not a real fanatic about posting at regular intervals, but gets a lick in there now and then.

Well, until next time…

Hug your dog.
