Border Collie Aussie Alert

Kash, the Border Collie Aussie mix dog goes on vacation!

Kash is just so cool! He goes into “vacation mode” when we take off on our two lane road trips. He just turns into the patient, well behaved Border Collie Aussie angel dog!

We took off and went to Cuyahoga National Park first and visited The Beaver Marsh. It was a good place too view and photograph wildlife, but it is just a little early to get a lot of views of the critters.

We saw turtles mating, but this was just a bystander.

When we travel, we like to take two lane roads, back roads, and avoid expressways if we can. You just get to see so many more cool things that way. Plus, we get to find great hiking trails and swimming spots for Kash the Dog!

We even went to Roanoke, Virginia so Kash could meet the black dog “Grace”, who Black Dog Salvage is named after. We love the Salvage Dawgs TV show on the DIY Network, so went went there and visited. Kash met Grace, and we met Mike and Robert, the stars of the show!

Mike was gracious and kind. He is a tall dude!

Grace the black dog at Black Dog Salvage looks like she is getting up there in years. She posed and didn’t really care if we were there or not.

Kash the Dog, our Border Collie Aussie, has excellent behavior in motel/hotel rooms. He just knows he can’t bark, even when babies are crying next door and kids running through the halls hooting and hollering! He just is so good!

Well there you have it. Kash the Border Collie Aussie returns from another successful two lane road trip!

Always be kind to your dog.
