Scout gets his topknot knocked around!

Our friends brought their 1 1/2 year old very sweet Mini Australian Shepherd, Shenobi, over to play today. Imagine our surprise when Shenobi initiates the play by taking his right paw and swiping directly at Scout's topknot, knocking it askew!

That got Scout going! They romped around and Scout got his topknot knocked around a bunch more. I think Shenobi was taunting him: "Hey, what's that thing on your head? Are you a metrosexual dog or what???"

Taking a break from the assault:


Lincoln ducks under hubby's legs for cover:


Shenobi's beautiful coloring! He's about 15 pounds.

Yum, Scout and Lincoln are so handsome. The mini Aussie-Shep. has pretty coloring, too--but, sorry, just can't compete with a Hav in full coat! (I'm a snob, shame on me.) But, other breeds can be wonderful, too--(just not quite as much as ours!)

Do you think Shenobi was specifically targeting Scout's topknot?

You son did a good job with the photos.

Wow-what a pretty australian shephard! That name is super cool too! I love it..and have never heard it before. I didn't even know they had minature ones...

I think Lincoln took the best position.... When in doubt of another guy messing your hair--retreat to Dad!

Yes, it was quite a deliberate swat to the head. It was his first move too!

That's so funny! Shenobi is a really beautiful dog.

Sometimes when we go to the dog park, I think some of the other dogs look at Salsa like she's an alien from another planet (and she doesn't even have a topknot).

Apparently there are minis and toy-sized ones too. Shenobi is a mini, but he is small (even for a mini) and is actually closer to the size of a toy AS.
