The Aussie vs The Dobie Nest

Now that I have two lovely Aussies, I can tell you that there is a definite difference in the way Aussies and Dobies keep their nests. Pictures are worth a thousand or so words in this case.

Taylor’s Nest Annie’s Nest

Here we have Taylor and Annie in their nests. I lay the blankets down flat for them, and this is how they re-arrange them. It’s as if they are putting themselves on the little thrones that they so belong upon. These little girls are the hardest working fuzzy-butts in the FDSP and deserve their thrones.

On the other paw, are the Dobies, who tend to enjoy the flat bed type of blanket. There are exceptions to that rule. Ginger likes to rumple her crate blanket up, but other than that, the rest of the Dobie den dwellers like the smooth and tidy look. It’s not that they aren’t princesses and princes, because they are. But perhaps the Aussie’s are a tad more vigilent on being “on top of things.” Plus Dobies like to stretch out, and aren’t so much the curling types. Especially at 2 a.m. when they’re on my bed and I’m on the edge of that bed. Yup.


About Helen

I'm a Southern California living in South Florida. I've been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I'm a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don't understand. So I'm an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
