Mikatura's Dancin'MyHeartAway

What??? They're for me??? COOL!!!  (Baby Casey sees "her" cattle!!!)
"Casey"

 

Casey was previously known as red tri female #3...this little girl headed for her new home in Manitoba with new "Aunt Kim" & "Mom" Teresa
 This page is an upside down (chronologically) on-going "journal" as she grows and shows Teresa & Shawn how versatile an Aussie really is!

"Don't mess with the gate watcher!"

January

First you bring them home...then you keep them away from the open gate!

 

Then you get a cuddle from "Dad" and go watch and see if he needs more help in the barn!

 

  

and Mom loves to take photos of me being a good girl!

 

June

Hello!  It has been forever since I have sent Casey pictures so here are a few. I get terrible cow pictures so couldn't send any of those but she is doing AMAZING! Very aggressive, hates the stubborn ones, hates when there is anything "out of place", loves to go to the head and LOVES doing chute work! She is incredible and I can't imagine a time without her. I want MORE AUSSIES! Are you having a litter this fall/winter??? I would love a red merle and I think I can even talk Shawn into it!

 

October

Started bringing cows home from pasture today. Casey was in her glory!  Rounded up a huge group all by herself (with a bit of direction from her dad). Didn't miss a single one. She hates when they don't listen to her. Wish I had videotaped this. It was impressive.
She really wanted to go hard with these two but listened well and calmed herself down to take them where they needed to go.

 

The meaner the cows get, the tougher Casey becomes. She doesn't like to lose! Loves to go to the head and "compete." I wish this picture wasn't blurry. Of course, she won. She is so quick and so smart. 98% of what she does is pure instinct/intelligence/genetics. We have given her very little "herding training." I think she is pretty amazing. To me, the sign of a true herding dog is the dog who can go out and instinctively know what is needed, watch her environment and her master and figure out what she has to do. If you have to teach instinct, that kind of defeats the purpose of working bred dogs. Or maybe I am wrong and it's not stock dogs in general but Aussies specifically who are so amazing. ;) I don't think we will ever be without one. She goes everywhere with us and I trust her in any situation at any time. Love my Mikatura Aussie. Thank you!!

 

 

2012

February to April

 
Well, maybe next week when I've grown another half inch?  No? Oh well, let's see what we can do now!


We've been told..."Casey is growing! And her personality has changed so much in the past week. We LOVE her, she is soooooo gentle and sweet with us but definitely shows her feisty side when she gets playing with other dogs. I've brought her with me to two of the obedience classes that I teach and she was awesome!  She is very smart and has picked up on everything we've taught her very quickly.  We will also be starting a puppy class on Monday and maybe beginner Flyball :)
