Dog of the Day: Monkey the Australian Cattle Dog Mix

Got some pictures of this pup on the day that I was doing that photo scavenger hunt. Her name is Monkey, and she’s a thirteen-year-old Australian cattle dog mix who is just full of smarts and awesome tricks. I couldn’t believe she was thirteen, although I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised: the second-oldest dog in recorded history was an Australian cattle dog, Bluey, who lived 29 years and a bit. Healthy breed!

I can picture buying a comfy chair and wearing sandals to work, just so that when I get home I can sit down in the comfy chair and have Monkey take them off for me.
