We shouldn't be surprised based on the water biting episodes, but Tessa does not enjoy long handled tools; which includes brooms.
Cole got a miniature broom to help around the house, and he recently learned that Tessa does not approve of cleaning floors.
The floors didn't get cleaned, but it kept Cole occupied and out of trouble for a while...and us entertained. :-)
My wife and I are happy to be a part of the family farm. I've always enjoyed the loyalty and companionship from good dogs and have taken up the training of herding dogs the past few years. I learn so much from the Australian Shepherds I've been with, and hope they enjoy their time with us as much as we love them.
