    When you give your Heeler away because of something it has done. Then when it finds it way back to you a month later, and you shed tears because you finally know what you done was the wrong thing.

    ...you absentmindedly put your own vitamins in a spoonful of cheese - and then eat them.

    I can't believe I did that.

    The Australian Cattle Dog, also known as the Australian Heeler, Hall's Heeler, Queensland Heeler and Blue Heeler, is a courageous, tireless, robust, compact working dog. The dog is agile, well-muscled, powerful and determined while working.

    I can't believe I did that.
    Years ago, I worked for my vet on Saturdays. I was normally the first one in the clinic. Early one Saturday when I was the only one in, a guy called and was panicked because he'd put his dog's heartworm pill on the counter to give to the dog. Then, he absentmindedly took it himself thinking it was one of his vitamins. The only thing I could do was tell him to call poison control. He called back, said that poison control said it wouldn't hurt him, and we had a great laugh over the whole thing. Later when the relief vet came in, she said she'd just read about the same thing in a vet journal.

    Your wife of 16 years (who has NEVER owned a dog) suddenly allows one in the house because she fell in love with an escaped cattledog we only kept for three weeks.

    Then she fell in love with the cattledog we got from the shelter (Kate).

    And now, there's a SECOND dog in the house as we are fostering a cattledog pup, (with which DW is already falling in love).

    I wouldn't have a dog at all if it hadn't been for a cattledog.

    .... when you refuse to move to a better/cheaper/closer-to-work location because this place is better for the dog.

    .... when any decision you make revolves around the dog's welfare first.

    .... when you laugh at people who dislike your dog's behavior (i love it, what's WITH those people?)

    .... when after work you spend two hours outside with him before even going inside to say hello to your significant other.

    .... when you make it a family rule that ''if it's on the ground, it belongs to the hound'', and no one gets to argue the point.

    .... when you fall and hurt yourself because you nearly stepped on his foot, and didn't want to hurt him.

    .... when you don't stay over at relatives' houses or sleep in the truck/garage when you do because he's not allowed in the house and you won't let him be alone for that long (6-8 hours).

    .... when you go to thrift stores every tuesday to buy more of those $0.25 stuffed animals (had to toss about 20 this week due to inoperable lacerations, lack of innards, or relative grossness....

    When your social life is dependent upon HER social activities (going swimming with her best friend, traveling 40 miles to play with her sister) you know, important things to do.

    When 1/2 of the King size bed is covered with a sheet for the dog and I can't stretch my legs out because it would disturb her, on my side of the bed.

    Just too many things to list. But, would we have it any other way? EJA

    ....you carry a special dog first aid kit and only grudgingly give band aids to humans
    ....your dog has a warmer jacket than you do (we lived in Northern Canada)
    ....the dog is eating raw lamb shanks and you are eating cereal for dinner

    but they're totally worth it!!
