I’m feeling a lot better today, thank goodness. So it’s time for a bigger post: Sidney, an Australian cattle dog that I ran into last week. Unfortunately, most of my pictures of him turned out badly. Fortunately, Andrew, Sidney’s dog-guardian (as opposed to a guard-dogian, which I guess would be Sidney) was happy to make up the difference. I have hidden Andrew’s pictures below the fold, both so that they don’t make the rest of the front-page pictures that I took look terrible in comparison, and to tempt more of you to look at the rest of the story, and maybe comment.
So yes. Six pretty amazing pictures after the jump, and one pretty mediocre one before. And thank you very much, Andrew, for permission to post the six.

Syd is a great looking dog and so is his owner. I may be a little prejudiced since Andy is my son
Well, I won’t make any judgements on the owner, but the dog is clearly something special. 🙂
Is Sidney a red heeler mix? I have a red heeler mix that looks identical to Sidney.
Actually, he’s a pure red heeler! Red heeler is just another name for the red-merle-coated Australian cattle dog.
