Skip The Clown Dog
Pin ItThis is Skip. He's 4 1/2 years old. His nickname is "Clown Dog", because he is one. After a 4-year long very steep learning curve, he will now bring the ball back to the thrower, thus enabling the game to continue. Maybe he was overshadowed by the ever-so-smart "Jack". It may seem hard to believe, but the two of them are distant cousins: both being half Australian Cattle Dog (Queensland Heeler). Skip's other half is Australian Shepherd. Jack's is Jack Russell Terrier. And that's the tall and the short of it.
