Puppy Love


Our friends have a new young dog. Although the breed originated in the US, it’s called an Australian Shepherd, so they named her Aussie. This puppy gets a lot of love, but she also gives it. When Aussie hears “I love you,” she says it right back. With our friends’ permission, I can show you a glimpse into the “I love you” conversation.

Here is our friend Glenda with Aussie on the beach.

It’s not always easy to get children to say their lines when you want them to, but Aussie finally does come up with her responses to the “I love you” prompt. Watch the short video clip below.

“I love you, Aussie, you’re so sweet,”

Her darling dog just waves her feet

Up in the air while on her back

As Glenda kisses with a smack.

“I love you Aussie,” that’s the phrase

The puppy loves to hear, this praise.

When Glenda’s words are whispered near,

Her Aussie says, “I love you, dear.”

Of course it’s done in doggie talk,

But she loves Glenda, she’s her rock.

  5. So sweet. Aussie sounds like a small child when she responds to Glenda. Just for the record, I’d like to add that Glenda also seems very sweet. Glad they found each other.

  10. Well that just got me to cry. Missing my Aussie boy, Max. I see Glenda has a minnie one. My guy was standard and wouldn’t have fit on my body like that, but he did sometimes flop across me in a similar way. He wasn’t a talker though. We’ve been looking online to rescue one, but there aren’t any rescue Aussies available in our state, for months now. I trust it’ll happen when it’s meant to.

    Thanks for sharing Aussie and Glenda. Aussies are my soulmate dogs.

  11. Sweet! I wonder how it acquired a name so very far away from its actual homeland. My mum had a kelpie when she lived in the outback, which is a genuine Aussie breed.
