I have two Mini Aussies. Sydnie is my red tri colored girl and Grady is my black tri colored boy (litter mates). They have just reached their second birthday. When I walk them just I am surprised when someone stops their car in the middle of the street to tell me how beautiful they are. I am hoping to get them both into some type of agility training or on a dog food bag cover. They are the joy of my life. My husband and I don't have children so they are our babies. Sydnie is miss independent and Grady is a mommas boy. They both follow me everywhere and are very, very protective of us and our home. Growing up we didn't have dogs or any pets so this was the first for me. This experience has had its ups and downs but in the end they are great dogs.
