 Talon's son, Sweep by our Ally

 
Talon is a dominant but biddable.  He is protective of the ranch but ever-so-loving once we tell him you are our friends.  He treats all humans exactly as they treat him.  He adores our granddaughter Shelby and in the evenings, you'll have to push him out of your lap:)  He's an eager stock partner with wonderful stock sense.  He's fast, fearless and strong on stock.  He lives to work for Steve.   Talon heads and heels both, although sometimes he can grab a tail on cattle - voops.  Talon retrieves anything and everything.  He is quite amusing when he shakes his toy with balls on each end as he literally bonks himself so hard you would think he would knock himself out.  He is an outstanding outside as well as inside dog.  He's a quiet dog, never being a barking nuisance like some Aussies.  He's very playful and loves it when we take time just to goof around, especially with the water hose. His working instinct is evidenced by the honors he's earned in competitions plus he serves as our right-hand man here at the ranch.
