My Aussie Girls
I have two Aussie's. They bring us more joy than any other dog we have ever owned!! They are super intelligent, loving, eager to please and they learn so fast.
Our female Mini-Aussie, Bailee Joy, is a blue-eyed, blue merle. She is almost two years old, 18 inches at the shoulders and weighs 30 lbs. She loves to play frisbee and actually trembles all over because she is so excited. We can't even say the word out loud unless we are ready to play. She almost never misses the frisbee, ball or any other toy that can be thrown. :~) She makes quite the beautiful sight when she jumps to catch the frisbee and is 4+ feet in the air and twists around while doing it. Even though we don't encourage it, she can clear a 4 ft fence with ease. It is really beautiful to watch. Bailee is dog #2 at our house. We have a 4.5 lb female, teacup poodle, Lacey, who is nine years old. Once we established Lacey as the "alpha dog". Things went much better.
Our Toy-Aussie, Maggie Mae, is a brown-eyed, black tri. She is 13 inches at the shoulders and weighs 21 lbs. Maggie is very sweet and loves to chew rawhides and other toys. We have to watch her as she will tear apart any toy that is not super tough. Even those that are labeled "tough" are no match for her. She makes you think she wants to play frisbee, but she doesn't. She wants the frisbee, but when you throw it for her, she takes it and runs out to the yard, lays down and begins to chew grass. If you ask her about the frisbee she may bring it back and want you to throw it, but when you do all she really wants to do is eat grass. Maggie is dog #3. She is very comfortable being "last". She knows her place and actually likes it.
Bailee and Maggie are half sisters, sharing the same father. They are exactly two weeks apart with Bailee being the oldest.
