DAY 10 – DOG-A-DAY PAINTING – MEET “BOOMER”

BOOMER

(short for “Boomerang”) is a 6 year old Australian Shepard.

He is the pup of one of my high school classmates…and I am so glad she shared him with me….

If Boomer had a Slogan it might be “will work for Tennis balls!!” He is razor sharp and quick as a flash. My brother had an Australian Shepard named “Mack” and and that guy could wear out the carpet chasing a ball…and Oh are they ever smart!!! If you even THINK “ball” they will come sit by you and wait!!!

Susie says, “Boomer likes to play more than any dog I have ever seen. I am probably outside with him five times away throwing balls and frisbees and he will go until he finally tires out . He does that by bringing one frisbee at a time (we have about six going at one time) to the garage door. When he has all six at the door we know it’s time to stop. But half hour later he will be ready to play again! “

Like a BOOMERANG!!!!

BOOMER

“At Christmas and his birthday he really does open gifts. We wrap his in plain white tissue paper so he knows they are his! As soon as one is opened he is ready for another…just like a kid! And of course he gets a doggie ice cream on his birthday but he cannot blow out the candle!”

Thank you Susie for sharing Boomer with us!!!!

5 FUN FACTS ABOUT AUSTRALIAN SHEPARDS

  1. Despite his name, the Australian Shepherd originated in the western U.S., not Australia, around the time of the Gold Rush in the 1840s.
  2. Aussies are natural born leaders… successful in such canine careers as guide dog, hearing dog, assistance dog, police dog, and search and rescue work.
  3. You can even teach an Aussie to help you with chores around the house, such as picking up dirty laundry off the floor and bringing it to you. You will however have to fold!

    THREE DOGS ON A STICK!!!

  4. Require regular brushing .
  5. Aussies enjoy the company of their family and prefer to stick close to their human pack. They don’t do well stuck in the backyard by themselves for long periods.
