Dog of National Dog Day: Smokey the Australian Cattle Dog

Happy National Dog Day! I was going to post a puppy today, until I realized that National Puppy Day is an entirely separate holiday, and that taking over National Dog Day for a puppy would be most ill-mannered of me.

So meet Smokey. Smokey is a gorgeous, deaf, 1-and-a-bit-year-old blue merle Australian cattle dog (aka blue heeler). Smokey is also a bit of a ham. Who likes ham.
