    Me.

    One dog - Male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Age approx 5. Taken on as a rescue. Nice nature.

    Two ferrets - Both male, both albino. Taken on from a rescue centre.

    One love bird - Bought as part of a pair around ten years ago or more. The other one died about 4 yrs back. The solitary one lived fine alone, albeit it is clocking up the years now, in bird terms.

    This is an older picture of our adopted Maine Coon mix kitten. She's about five months old now... and growing like a weed. She was barely weened when I found her hiding under a clump of grass next to a very busy street.

    many pets over the years but right now I have one of these

    [​IMG]

    everyone believes their dog/breed is the smartest out there and I was no exception with other dogs I've owned, I heard Border Collies were smart but i doubted they were noticeably smarter then any other breed, then I bought one :omg: it's almost like a different species of canine, everyday I'm astounded how fast this dog learns...he can even count!(to five)... I half expect to come home someday to find him reading the paper...think twice about buying one all those brains come with a price, not a low maintenance dog...

    Those Aussies and Borders are used quite a lot in my hood. They are heel nippers and keep the milk hens under control. Once in a while. I get a 3 AM call that a Toro is having fits that the girls are being prevented from going to the barn. Then / The Duke comes out.
    This isn't Duke. He's bigger, albeit related. Notice the " locked on feature'

    Four English Spaniels. Three are black and white, sisters from the same litter. Mattie, Penny and Gracie. The pup of the bunch, Buck, is a male who's liver and white.

    They're loads of fun.

    This is my ACD, his name is Mugul it's an Aboriginal word that kind of means "Naughty Boy"

    The ACD was first bred on a property (ranch for you yanks) at my home town. They are a cross between a dingo (the non-baby eating kind) and an English Sheep Dog

    I found that unlikely so I did some googling...the northumberland drover dog used as base was cross of bearded collies and border/scotch collie, since there are no pictures of the extinct northumberland the picture you posted is likely a bearded collie...I would guess that the northumberland had considerably shorter coat than a bearded collie due to border/scotch collie genes, then shorter again once crossed with a dingo...

    I have a cat. It looks a bit like this (the race is correct, the size as well, colours are a bit off.)

    I was amazed at how hard it is to find a picture, I put this up knowing it wasn't 100% but experiments at the time used lots of dogs. Mine has border collie in his line,. this has nearly taken away all the sable colour but gives the dog a better temperament.

    He is a typical bluey though, one speed flat out, chews absolutely everything, talks incessantly, thinks he is invincible and is loyal as..

    We have a Border Collie as well, our second. Brilliant, hilarious, never a dull moment with one.
