Chief is an ACD (Australian Cattle Dog). He is aging now --- maybe nine-years old. He used to run fifteen miles a day bringing the milkers in-and-out three times a day. I named him after the Kansas City Chiefs --- he has a perfect Arrowhead as his blaze. BTW---I have been a fan of the Chiefs and MU wayyyyyyyyyyyy too long ------- those losers. Anway --- Chief and I have now grown old together. We communicate with our eyes. Can you understand? If he wants 'out' he just sends me those eyes. If he wants a drink and I forgot his water, he watches me take a leak. If I get to tripping too much on past foul-ups he senses that and comes to my lap and demands an ear rub. I love my Chief. Do you have a favorite mutt?
