Snow way! Loved dogs can do great tricks

PUPS Snow and Mia are Courtney-Leigh Watt and Jesse Booth's circus animals.

Snow, a cattle dog cross, and Mia, a border collie cross kelpie, are six months old and can do plenty of impressive tricks.

It's just one of the things that their owners love about the dogs, who muck around like a brother and sister.

"They can play dead, roll over, dance, shake hands and spin," Ms Watt said.

"The first day we got Snow we taught him tricks. They are obedient dogs.

"They do have a bicker every now and then, though."

Ms Watt, who has lived in Gladstone for nine years, said the dogs hated having baths and they recently chewed the outdoor setting.

However, they are very loving companions to come home to after a bad day at work.

"They bring out the better in people," Mr Booth said.

"I used to go out all the time with my mates and drink but I've settled down a bit with the dogs now.

"Even if you have a bad day at work they are so excited to see you."

Snow, who is a very talkative RSPCA pup, is a male while Mia is a female and is much quieter with a "doughey" face that Ms Watt adores.

"What don't you love about them?" she laughed.

Having dogs around the house is something Ms Watt isn't used to.

"I had fish as a kid but I always wanted a dog. They make you really happy," she said.
