Miranda is out third Miniature Australian Shepherd. Before Miranda we names our first two Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. We had a theme and wanted to keep it going.
Miranda's training is constant and on going. She is a very intelligent dog and she know not only verbal commands, but also gestures and hand signals. It's sometimes scary on what all she picks up. It is said that a baby that is around adults mostly will pick up more quickly on habits and mannerisms. Miranda is never alone and is almost always a human or her playmates, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.
Yes, Miranda is registered. Her registry number is, US-SAR-500352917. Miranda has full legal access to all public places including air travel. It may surprise some people what kind of legal rights a Service K9 has. I know it was a learning process for us. He main handler Gordy Powell also has to be registered. Both have to carry travel credentials.
Miranda loves to travel. When she travels she has her own guitar case (Mandolin Case) that she keeps her travels bowls, kibbles, accessories and play toys.
