We met another Aussie last week!
Dailola: This is our new friend Liza and she came all the way from Sydney, AUSTRALIA!
THE STORY OF HOW WE MET, hang on to your seats:
We met on Instagram a couple years ago because, well duh…she found us thru #australianshepherd and started follwing us. This October she came for a little holiday and asked our mama if she could meet us since she was hanging out in the hood. We met outside Blue Bottle
and mama and Liza got so chatty, they decided to go for drinks at Hotel Delmano.
As they chatted over drinks, Liza said she had been to Smorgasburg three summers ago where she had seen two Australian Shepherds for the first time evah.
She asked the couple with the pups, “what kind of dogs are those?” When she heard Australian Shepherd, she replied, “I’m from Australia and have NEVER seen one before but I LOVE them!”
And so began her quest, the search for an Aussie pup. Liza searched high and low (just an fyi, Aussie Shepherds originated in the Basque region, not Australia). She found a breeder far away and got her puppy last year and guess what? His name is Brooklyn, in honor of the the two pooches that introduced her to the breed.
It was then mama asked, “What did those dogs look like from the couple years ago”. Liza replied, “just like Dailola.”
Are you following?????
"Was it us? It must be and well that means you met us way back when?" And then Liza searched her Facebook photos from that trip….
LOW AND BEHOLD, she produced a photo of us! The beginning of it all, a new friendship and love for Aussie Shepherds and the quest to find one of her very own!
What an amazing world we live in. And this all started here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
