Laurel is a nutcase. She's another lapdog, which isn't so bad since she doesn't weigh as much as her mom. She'll play fetch with anything, unlike her mother who will only play fetch with a ball. For some reason it looks ridiculous to see her play fetch with an empty paper towel tube. While she'll disembowel a stuffed animal in a matter of seconds, she's the first Aussie I've ever had who didn't chew up plastic toys. She has a hideous plastic chicken we got at Wal Mart when she was about 3 months old. Six months later and the only damage was that the feet broke off. Why is it that the ugliest toy I've ever seen lasts forever? She's also the first Aussie I've ever owned who loves the laser. (I know other dogs do, I've just never owned one.) She thinks of Aidan as 'laser boy'. If he steps outside at night she goes crazy looking for the laser beam.
