A year from now, maybe a bit more and heíll be ready to start some adventures.

T-Rez likes to herd our cat. It's hilarious. The cat isn't sure what to think, but he tolerates it because T-Rez is quite gentle.

Kind of an oddball, but my best four-legged backpacking was a male dobie.

Woot! Dobies are great dogs one of my neighbors as a kid had a whole herd of those silly dogs they chased us all over the country when we rode by on our bikes.

Truly great dogs!
Like other breeds in the working class, Dobies got a bad rap for being mean. I had several, all were lovers, but only Rocky loved backpacking.

+1 on Australian Shepherd, Border Collie or Australian Cattle Dog

I don't bike with my dog (I am too paranoid about something happening to him), but I am his herd and he won't stray very far away from me at all.
Natural instinct to protect and track his herd.
