To Clarify Dingos in Texas

This is a Dingo courtesy of the web.

This is my BFF Grunt and what I call a Dingo courtesy of mom’s camera.
When I first started my blog, I posted on 7/30/13 "My favorite past time is watching dingos.  Okay, they're not actual dingo's but rather a red heeler and a blue heeler". 

Texas does not have real Dingos.  Dingos are native to Australia and what I call dingos are Australian Cattle Dogs also known as red or blue heelers.  Many many years ago an Australian farmer crossed his dogs with the wild dingo to produce a cattle dog that could with stand the harsh conditions.  My BFF Grunt is a blue heeler and mom has always referred to his bad manners/behaviors as his dingo blood not to mention he is an obedience school dropout.  I don’t have critters such as squirrels, rabbits, or rats to bark at since Grunt is an outside dog nothing gets in our yard.  Therefore, I made it my official duty to watch for Dingos in the pasture because they are very sneaky and they are cow patty thieves and as you know I am a big fan of the cow patty.  Now, are we all on page that Texas doesn't have real dingos but in Sully's world blue and red heeler are known as cow patty thieving dingos and my arch nemesis.

Aroo to you,



  1. Muahaha, thanks for the clarification Sully!! ;-) I like your cow patty stealing "dingoes" just as much as the Australian ones!

  2. Now I know to whom you're referring.

  3. We knew who the dingoes were......AND you're doing a fantastic job keeping them out of your territory.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  4. I'm an Aussie, I knew what Dingos were and about your healer problem. I live near a place called Kengal, it's a rock formation that the local Aboriginal people say is two sleeping dingos... But they're asleep, so they don't cause any problems. :)

  5. LOL that told us. We thought that must be the case but great to know you got your crib covered and protected from cow patty thieving dingos. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Oh thank you for telling us this, cos wesa was worried about them dogs! See we didn't know about your heeler problem and friend and we didn't THINK there were actually dingo's in Texas but heck sometimes we think one way and it is another.....did you not know our mom was a robot anyway and can hardly pass the robot tests on here before she can post a comment...robots think very analytical AND they can't cook!

  8. Thanks for clearing this up, Sully!

    Love ya lots♥

  9. Now seeing Grunt from the front, why he is a nice looking heeler. Cow patty thieves well I am sure they are one hundred percent organic food.
    Now my Lee spent her summers on a dairy farm and the short haired collie who herded was never interested in cow patties. I myself prefer Mr. Hippity Hoppity's raisins they are organic also.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  11. I get it now, I think. Wait...are you moving to Australia?? Maybe I don't get it.

  12. BOL!! Ok we are barking from the same hymn sheet now Sully. We have to admit, we were a wee bit confused about dingos in Texas butt we get it now.

    Be sure to keep an eye on those "dingo" dogs...they are clearly a tricksy bunch.
