Not sure where to put a gallery dedicated to my four-footed friend, so I will put it here.
Liddy is an Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) / Australian Shephard mix. These breeds are outstandingly smart herders. Like the Border Collie, they have been bred to do a task with little direction.
Dave has significant hearing loss, especially in the high frequencies. He can’t hear most of the alarms in the kitchen and other places. He has trained Liddy to notify him when the oven, the microware, and other alarms sound. She is constantly learning new ways to help like reminding him to take his medications on time.
