LOL. Yep figured I'd make it clear I wont actually steal a puppy. If I liked barking and herding I'd probably be on the wait list for an Aussie right now. Visually, they're the prettiest. And I love their temperaments. Sigh. I shall live through your pictures. I'm eager to see if any come out with Hawk's dark merling.
I don't know how different standard aussies are from MAS, but now that I have taken the plunge and gotten an MAS/aussie type dog I don't think i will ever go back! Sure he baeks, herds my feet, herds the other dogs, baeks some more etc ... but ... I dont know how to explain it ... they just stick to you, does that make sense? Lol.
If it weren't for the reason that 2 dogs is our limit, I would totally steel one of these awesome pups.
