Anyone else here owned by a Mini Aussie? and just curiously what do you think of the debate going about AKC accepting them? True Aussie people despise the idea but I want them to be excepted!

I don't know anyone who has one yet. But if the AKC is looking at them and the top breeders don't like it, then they may have a good reason of concern.

Don't be too swift to crave AKC acceptance. That's been the death knell of many good breeds.

Personally, I'll fight AKC acceptance of Filas down to the last inch. Thankfully, it's highly improbably that it will ever be an issue; Fila people can't agree among themselves on certain aspects of a breed standard. There are enough of us purists out here to keep the controversies going indefinitely, too.

Titles are nice, but in the long run, you don't love your dog any more or less because of them, and they don't change who your dog is, and that's really what living with a dog is all about.
