"This is my dog Sam, an Australian Kelpie shown here at 10 months old. He loves to run around the yard playing with my other dog. He likes to herd the cows that live in the field next to us. He is extremely smart and obedient. He is friendly to most of the people that come around. He does not like stray dogs or cats to be around his territory or he will go after them. He has killed two animals so far, an opossum and a big field rat! He is good with our cat, though. I have had him since he was a puppy at five weeks old."

Smoky the 9-year-old Australian Kelpie—his owner says, "He has been doing a lot of different disciplines; obedience, tracking, rescue dog, doggy dance, IPO, teaching the new puppies the good things and the less good ones. Best friend to our daughter Sharon. Loves to run on the beach or in the fields."
