    A Cat Lover’s Complicated History With Man’s Best Friend by Jake Tapper


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     OlympicPen says Australian terriers are such good companions because 'they are there for you and with you all day and night. They practically are your shadow if you ever own one. They are also your "Live Early Warning System" letting you know by barking at anything or anyone that's coming and seem like they are never afraid of anything no matter how big ... even moose!' You can read Jake Tapper's story here.

    I read Jake Tapper's short story about his love of cats and new found fondness of Australian Terriers. I just wanted to say I totally agree with Jake that these Aussie Terriers are totally awesome to have as companion(s). I just wanted to show Jake two of ours, Shadow the Blue Tan & Akida the Red one, but the red one is no longer with us though. Shadow is the father of Akida. We do have a cat, too, named Willow which we rescued from back of cabin in Wasilla, Ak when she was a few weeks old.
    Jake, thanks for the wonderful story of your pets.
    You Rock, Jake!
