Aussie and Skye — an 11-year-old mini Australian shepherd and 7-year-old Australian shepherd

Aussie and Skye — an 11-year-old mini Australian shepherd and 7-year-old Australian shepherd, respectively — don’t spend all their time sipping wine lakeside (fact: the wine is merely a prop). They also enjoy daily walks and car rides around their Lake Highlands home, owner David Sassano says. “Whether my partner, Don, and I are heading to Gecko Hardware for garden supplies or to TJ’s for a snow cone, they insist on hanging their heads out the window and greeting folks with a friendly bark.” Aussie’s shiny mane and bewitching eyes have boosted her popularity on the photo-centric social media site Instagram, where, under Aussie_the_mini_aussie, she has 4,200 followers and counting.
