Just as long as you're aware he doesn't come with a mute button....

Bean's eyes are very dark brown. Steve has light brown and blue eyeballs.

Bean is half sporter collie, half conformation-bred.
Steve is half working bred and half sporter collie.

Poor confused dogs. I will take them.

I've lived with shelties and then Mia. I'm immune to dog barking, whining, and screaming.

I haven't even looked at a Fila board for YEARS.

And of course, I'm going to be the ruination of the breed because *gasp* my dogs can function in public! That, or they must not be real Filas in the first place.

Sorry. But a border collie in the show ring isn't a border collie IMO.

Just about all herbivores are R-G color blind, but they can see blue. Probably helps them keep the sky and ground separate in their heads? So sheep can be sufficiently terrified by a blue eyed dog to move along, but a deer can pick out your jeans before your orange vest.

This is why I won't be participating in any breed boards if I/we should get a dog someday. I just want a dog. As long as he or she is healthy, I don't care whether or not he or she doesn't have a certain eye color or has a smudge of white where it should be tan.

I know what I want in a dog and I'm educated on breeders and rescues.

Why is it so important to these dog clubs whether a dog has a certain color eyes? Shouldn't they be more concerned with function and preserving its history?
