I got Willow through the Humane Society and am so happy I did! When I first met her, she was super shy and was afraid of anyone or anything. She just sat in the corner of the room trying to stay away from me. I decided to take a chance on her and hoped she would come out of her shell once she was out of the shelter and traveling around with me in the van. It only took a few days for her to warm up to me and is now a very outgoing, confident and loving dog. She loves to camp (good thing, since that's what I do full-time) and explore the forest with me. She enjoys meeting the new people we meet along the way and loves playing with the other dogs in neighboring campsites. She can be a bit of a thief, though. She stole a spoon from a neighboring camper while he was making breakfast. She has also come back to camp with a lime, an avocado, several avocado pits and a t-shirt to name a few. She has also found dear feet/hooves at two camps, which is incredibly gross, but she enjoyed them.

Her name when I adopted her was "Bunny", but I didn't think she felt like a Bunny and she did not know her name was Bunny anyway. I was on the phone with my sister telling her about my new dog and that I wanted a different name for her. She did a Google search on the most popular girl's names in Australia and Willow was in the top 10. We both thought Willow was a great name and after just a few weeks, she knows that she is Willow. She is also very smart and is enthusiastic during our training sessions. She keeps a good eye on camp and alerts me to any intruders. I woke up in the middle of the night one night to her barking, looked out the window and there was a moose walking through camp. She doesn't miss much!

Australian Cattle Dogs have an abundance of energy and we satisfy that need to expend energy by playing catch with her ball. I use a ChuckIt! thrower and can really get some distance on my throws. It takes quite a bit to wear her out. As of this writing, I've only had her for a few months, but I can already tell she is going to be one of the best dogs I've ever had.

The products listed below are fantastic. The ball launcher is a classic and the bed fits easily in its stuff sack and is very compact. The collar is one of the few I found that has a separate ring for tags, is available in many colors/sizes and has excellent reflective qualities.
Willow highly recommends these pet products and gives two paws up!
