I'm an aussie too (from WA) and haven't been on here long either. We have an almost 6 month old terror called Penny who is quite a handful. There are a couple of other aussies in here too. Whereabouts are you from? Are you a breeder or is was that your first time? Do you have a lot of experience with GSDs. Penny is our first (except from the one I grew up with) so we are on a steep learning curve!! LOL!!
