No kidding Regan, once you have a Chi or two, not having Chi's, will never do. LOL.
GET over here and tell that to Molly!!!! Please!! LOL She is the most demanding 3 lbs I have ever seen

I have had two that were not though, LOL and I LOVE this breed and hope someday to get very involved in them, but that is at least 5 years away as I am too busy and have too full a house right now.

Not necessarily. It's not about 'amount of white' but rather how the white is inherited.

For example:

This one is actually mostly colored.



Color headed white shelties:




Both mostly white but not double merle.

CHW does NOT have any health associations that double merle does, but they look very close.
