Ted the $9,000 Kelpie.
Ted the Kelpie broke a record last year selling in Australia for $9,000 (£6,000 or US$6,265). But this record has already been broken with one selling for $12,000. As an aside, this farm, farmer and farm-dog are all in Yeoval in country New South Wales, where my Grandfather A.A.Blatch Sr and his family were from. Read on here and watch the video below. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Kelpie's work, they're pretty amazing. Also makes you shake you head that some people buy these in the city so they can be cramped in a courtyard for months on end.
