Bernese Mountain Dog
“It’s got to be a Berner. The Bernese Mountain Dog is the best breed to have for a family. Affectionate, intelligent and protective. I have had four of these beautiful animals. The last one, Tori, used to sit in front of me and give me that Bernese look. I would say ‘up!’ and he would put his front paws on my shoulders and know that he would get a reward. Unfortunately, they have a short lifespan.” – Drew Armstrong
“Working Dogs are tops. Blue Cattle Dogs, Kelpies and Border Collies are known for their work ethic but I love their loyalty and absolute devotion to their human families. My all-time favourite will always be the Blue Cattle Dog, in particular our dog ‘Trigger’, who was my confidante during those tumultuous pre-teen years. He was always there for me, licking up my tears if I was upset, joyously playing when I was jumping out of my skin and quietly steadfast, keeping me company in my reflective times. Fiercely devoted and protective of the entire family it was a sad day when we left New Guinea to return to Australia without our loyal and loving ‘Trigger’.” – Cheryl Noud
Working dogs find their calling in life at a young age. Like these cute police dog puppies.
