Slyvana, free tip. Do not teach your aussie that fruit grows on trees. We have wild plubs around wind breaks around here. So I was popping them in my mouth a couple years ago, and my aussie was watching me. I fed him a couple I split open, and the fun started. He knows about mulberrys, plumb, chokecherry, apples, pears and peaches now. No way am I showing him were the squash and cucumbers come from. Aussies are smart enough to be a royal pain in the butt at times.

Originally posted by Sylvana: Tucker would go behind and push me over the thresholds when he saw me struggling, a huge help. He then learned he could push me over to where his cookies are, so sometimes I take a short trip I hadn't intended. [/QB]

Sylvana, it certainly appears that he has good looks and brains. Quite a find Please keep us posted as to his accomplishments, it certainly seems he has the instincts and personality to be a terrific service dog.
