Too many sheep on the cover, right?

That is what I keep saying. No one ever listens to me. Anyways, this is my first book.





No, it is not about Australia. My story is about the craziest dog breed ever- the Australian Shepherd. Guess what? We’re not even from Australia. We come from Western United States.


Did I mention it is FREE? Yep, you can share it, gift it and pass it around to all your friends.


This book is dedicated to Senshi. One of the fastest Frisbee chasers and best dog courier of Milwaukee.


Rest in peace cuz.


I am a real dog, not just a cartoon. The stories I am about to share with you are my real adventures.


If you never met an Australian Shepherd or Aussie as we prefer to be called, you are in for a real treat.


We are working dogs that herd. This means we watch and protect sheep, cattle and other farm animals.


One day someone noticed how adorable Aussies were and decided we would make great indoor pals. Now you even see us everywhere, even on TV commercials.

Aussie can lay with their legs behind them. We call this ‘frog legs’.


Looks crazy, right? You should try it. It is really comfortable.

Aussies actually smile. I know what you are thinking, a dog can’t really smile. Well, we do


It is called the ‘Aussie Grin’. Some of us grin showing all our teeth. Our grins can look a little scary or really funny.


We smile mostly when we are really nervous or just being silly.

Aussies have a good sense of humor and are always ready for fun. Some of us are downright silly


Aussies can be quite the pranksters.

Aussies come in SIXTEEN color combinations

1. Black

2. Black and Copper

3. Black and White (Bi-Black

4. Black, White and Copper (Tri-Black) I am a Tri-Black.

5. Blue Merle

6. Blue Merle and Copper

7. Blue Merle and White

8. Blue Merle Copper and White

Kode is #8.

09. Red

10. Red and Copper

11. Red and White (Bi-Red

12. Red, White and Copper (Tri-Red

13. Red Merle

14. Red Merle and Copper

15. Red Merle and White

16. Red Merle, Copper and White

Our eyes can be golden, amber, light brown, dark brown, green, blue or marble.


We can have eyes that are TWO different colors. How crazy is that?

Hey … where’s my tail?


No worries, I was born without a tail. This is called a natural dock.


Some of us have our tails cut off or docked when we are puppies. OUCH!

Aussies can also have long and beautiful fluffy tails.

Most Aussies like their ears down and floppy.


When I was teething, I was in so much pain my ears went up.

I decided I liked this new look with my ears up, so I kept them that way. I have always been a trendsetter.


Which way do you like better- floppy ears or straight up ears?

Aussies love to dig and are great gardeners.


Kode dug up the rose bushes and planted them on the other side of the yard.


Kode found out that roses BELONG in the rose garden. Who knew?

Aussies love to play and gather stockpiles of balls, Frisbees and sticks.


Some Aussies really can jump! People call them the ‘High Flyers’.

Floppy ears, pointed ear, green eyes, blue eyes, fluffy tail or no tail.


WE ARE PERFECT, just the way we are.
