Instagram user @my_aussie_gal is possibly one of the luckiest dog owners around.
Because of her adorable pal Secret.
Finally headed home! We had such a great trip, we're all so sad to leave Iowa!💙😭At least no matter how sad we are to leave our vacation spots, Secret always has @my_berner_girl to look forward to when we get home, their reunions are the sweetest!😊💖💕 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
The Australian shepherd is wowing followers with her incredible intelligence.
From learning CPR...
... to practicing yoga...
Did a little two person doga this morning😊💕The second position has taken so much time for her to slowly build up the balance and strength she currently has for it❤ I love doing two person doga so much, we really have to work together to balance😊💖 It was a great warm up for a full day of hiking and a long evening of agility classes😄 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @bluebearaussie @lilly.the.aussie
It was a morning well spent!😊❤ Usually when she does doga it's by herself, but I did it with her today and added in some weight lifting (she loves the weights so much, she'd carry them around all day if I didn't put them away😂) and then she did a little trust fall at the end💕😄 #doga #yoga ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
... Mary and Secret have a partnership unlike any other.
A short clip of me and Secret trying out a new "doga" position way too early this morning😊😁❤ the picnic table was the only place we could do it that wasn't too wet outside😅 As you can probably see, Secret has been having problems with her fur and was scratching a lot. We just went to the vet and it turns out her seasonal allergies kicked in again, something quite similar happened last fall as well. They gave us a medication and prescribed shampoo, so hopefully it will get better now.🙏💖 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @bluebearaussie @lilly.the.aussie
The two also love dancing together.
Back paw cross paws😊❤ I get so crazy proud of Secret every time we work on this, it has easily taken the longest of any trick we have attempted so far for her to get the hang of, we have been working on it on and off for months now to get to this point😅😊💕 I really did not expect her to be able to do this when we first started trying, it is obviously a hard one for her to do physically, and she had to learn a lot of new balance. We're working on doing this with her front paws on my hands instead of the pole eventually😊💖 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
Here's a little video of us learning a step my lovely best friend @my_berner_girl made up for Secret! She just learned it, and I think it might be her favorite dance step to do so far😊❤ We've had a blast learning this one, thanks for the awesome choreography my friend!😄💖 #irishdance ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
Secret even helps out around the house!
Helping to clean up a spill😄 It's been so long since she's done this behavior, I get nostalgia when I think how much younger she was when I first taught her it😊💗 @my_berner_girl this could be good one to teach Rumor! she's already got a bunch of the prerequisites down for it!😁 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @lilly.the.aussie @sassyandsila @bluebearaussie
Helping out with the sweeping😊💗 I just taught her this a couple days ago, for a little break from all the more complicated behaviors we're working on😄 This makes me so nostalgic, I can remember so well when she was just 9 or so weeks old and her version of helping out with sweeping was grabbing the dust pan and running around with it😂 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
She hasn't done laundry in forever! She looks so annoyed every time I ask her to get more😂 Thank you guys for all the sweet comments on our other videos and pictures, I am so terrible at finding time to respond to them all!😅 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners😊 @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @mksdoggyoverload @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
As you can see we both do our fair share of cleaning up😄😂 Secret (and I😅) made the biggest mess of the living room while playing today, which required me to vacuum up the innards of several previously intact toys😂 So we're hurrying to clean it up before mom and dad get home😂😅 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
I set up the camera in the kitchen to try and capture what she's been doing all week, and I did😂 As you can see, she's just wandering randomly around and all the sudden decides to bring me a drink without me asking, she's been doing it all week, she did it again about half an hour later than this, and since she had taken all the sodas out previously, she actually brought me a jar of relish😂 She does it especially when I am doing something like playing the piano or studying, basically whenever I'm not paying attention to her😂❤ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @lilly.the.aussie @sassyandsila @bluebearaussie
In the case of Mary and Secret, dog truly is (wo)man's best friend.
Secret trying her hardest to push me on the swing😊❤ I love the little hops she was incorporating😂😄💖 She only started learning to push me recently, but being pushed by her now already feels so much smoother compared to when we first gave it a go, it's actually becoming quite enjoyable😂😄 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow my Pawtners @borderaussiebodey @sassyandsila @lilly.the.aussie @bluebearaussie
