i though to be akc aussie the tails had to be cut? is this a option if you get one from a breeder? or are those border collies? i think those merle patterns are so cool!

no, from what i can gater, some are born with a full tail, such as my Snow (who can never be AKC because she is born of two blue merels..a huge no no!) and some are born with the bobbed tails. As for the blue merle, blue merle not being AKC? its because they almost always will produced blind or deaf or both, pups.. Snow is deaf but can see like a hawk..lol And Barring a pup from blue merle parents from becoming AKC is supposed to keep breeders from breeding deaf / blind dogs... no one wants em, which is one of the reasons we took Snow... shes so smart and such a god girl, she deserves to have a home thats NOT 4 X3 foot.

It has to do with the Coloration... the Pigmentation in the ears believe it or not, the more color on the heads, the better the hearing so where mine has only some black on her ears, her hearing is almost completely gone.. she does appear to hear sometimes though, theres been times when she'd turn her head when my wife laughs out loud.. I think she can faintly hear her or she can feel the vibrations.. Im not really sure, anyhow, its something to do with the pigmentation that catches the electronic impulses at the nerve ends in the ears and carries them to the brain..

This is Chilli who we sadly parted with after discovering my husband's allergic :( She is now over 12 months old and has retained her normal eye and 1 blue eye :D

lol is she nailed to a wall?? lol good looking pup. Hubby couldnt take anything for his Allergies? I ask because we have two cats and my wife is totally allergic to them so she takes Allegra D dailey and we have a few rules like no going in our bed room and she doesnt hold them too much or for too long and she rarley lets one cuddle up on her.. (but they try anyways..lol) Thats too bad he was Allergic though..

lol the pic should have been turned round hehe she sleeps with her tongue lolling out of the side of her mouth!!

Hubby had radiation treatment to his lungs about 9 years ago and suffers from recurring pneumonia and pleuracy so I guess it was a really bad idea me even thinking of getting a dog - Piriton worked a little but he couldn't go in the same room as her for more than 10 minutes without his throat closing over and choking him :(

ACtually thinking about it - I know that Bichon Frise are hypoallergenic!!! They have double coated fur which doesn't moult so that are great for allergy sufferers. Sadly in the UK, they fetch the equibvalent of around $1700 upwards so way out of my price range!!

yeah all those smaller type dogs go for alot of $$$ here in the states also. Plus with all the unscrouplus breeders we have, you knever know what youll get, the dog could be inbred for the last 10 generations!

the cover is made out of microsuede. it's amazing tho, it doesn't attract as much hair as i thought it would. i've tried vaccuuming it, but that makes her go crazy :lol: it also comes off, so i can stick it in the laundry if need be. she doesn't jump on it w/o permission tho. she still sheds quite a bit, especially since she's shedding her winter coat atm. you should see the rug we have, it's a hair magnet.

as for the shot, i'm still learning about exposure, so my keeper rate is very low. i'm doing a lot of chimping atm, but i've never bothered w/ using anything but M mode :)
