The Power Dog.
She's been with Clint longer than I have.
She's been a great cow dog, a traveling companion, and one of the best pets.
I think anyone who's judged for Clint on a livestock judging team probably has an "Austin" story.
Whether it was being smuggled into a hotel in a duffel bag, or traveling under the front bench seat in the 12 passenger van across the country to contests - she's been a dog many remember.
She quickly got the nickname "Powers" since so many called her Austin Powers, the Power Dog.
A few weeks ago, Austin went with me to a ranch where I was putting in CIDR's, and we got there a bit early, so we had our own little photo shoot for about two minutes before the rest of the crew arrived.
As you can tell, she was reeeaaaallll impressed. :)
We just love this dog of ours. She's getting up there in years now, and can't hear a dang thing, but she seems to be staying healthy so we're going to enjoy having her while we can.
Austin, you will always be our "Power Dog".
