Famous Aussie Owners

Do you ever think about strange quirky things that the average person might not think about?  I do it all the time.  I'm forever making lists and later Googling answers to some of my most pressing questions.  Today, I was thinking about who out there among us deemed the "rich and famous" might have a mini Australian Shepherd.  I couldn't find anyone listed as having a mini per se, but I found several lists with standard Aussie owners.  One list states Sally Field, Steve Jobs, Demi Moore/Bruce Willis, Jack Perkins (not sure who he is), Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, and Flip Wilson to be Aussie owners.  I found another website that lists Mel Gibson as having one, too (the poor dog).

Both Rosie O'Donnell and a Nascar driver (can't think of his name) have Mini Aussies from Joey's "Grand Breeder" -- Patchwork Farms. Those are the only famous people I can think of.

What a gorgeous dog in the photo and the young lady is quite a beauty too! So many stars have become Aussie lovely!

We would think that ALL owners of Aussies would be famous because they would be living with an Aussie, right?
