Not sure how many others have a shop dog. I have some great ones. I had a golden retriever For 14 years she was love going on stick hunts in the woods. I did not think I would get another but last year I gave in and got a new shop dog. She a miniature Aussie, For some reason now called miniature American shepherd. She has taken over the shop. She also loves the stick hunts. sadly I cant get out Like I did. She has claimed her corner of the shop. Is good at staying out of the way. She only chewed up one cane shaft as a puppy. She always likes my work. I show her a stick I am working on and she wages her nub. Aussies don't have tails. Were else can you get unconditional
approval of your work.
