This is the brand new addition to my life. An Australian Cattle Dog rescue. His name is Banjo, and he was a private rehoming from a woman (and 9 month old baby) that had hives.
We brought him home 3 days ago, and things seem to be going quite smoothly. He seems to be very trainable (intelligent), and will hopefully make a good agility dog, a companion for Clark, and a herding trial prospect.
Speaking of Agility, Clark and I had back to back trials. He managed to get a Gamblers qualification, and put together a bunch of impressive runs (yea, 12 runs, 1 good enough to qualify.)
But, he really got his wheels going in the donation tunnelers course. I can’t wait to try our first team run with Judy and her Sheltie (two dogs running one half of one course.)
