    Well it looks like you will be kept busy

    Looking at the website the colour isn't coming about due to demand for the unusual but rather on working/performance ability which is fine.

    If you're up for one of these dogs give them a call and see what they have to say.

    If you're looking for a performance dog agility/dances with dogs that type of thing then I'd be putting preference on a pup coming from those lines. Though most BC do very well in those area anyway.

    My male Whippet practices fly-ball with a serious team of BC's, (we don't compete just attend training night, unless they are gearing up for a competition). They thrive on it however Mickey and I come home with a headache from all the barking.

    this has made me feel so much better I will tell the breeder I am happy to wait for my dream dog Aussie with a tail I have not seen one
    Oh yeah, not all aussies are born with natural bob tails nowdays a lot of Aussies have beautiful fluffy tails especially now that the tail docking ban is in place!

    I knew the exact color I wanted when I ordered my puppy... I got almost the complete opposite Wouldn't trade him for anything though, I never mentioned color when I was talking to the breeder, I just wanted the 'pick' puppy, whichever one was the best.

    I have my next puppy on order and although I have mentioned in passing to the breeder I really like a particular color combination it really has no bearing on the final decision.

    Yeah I think it's fine to say I'd really 'like' this or that. But dogs aren't furniture and it's really hard to make them to measure so to speak.

    I actually still have a blue fawn & white lightly brindled bitch and a red fawn & white dog pup from my litter born in August because people were wanting them primarily because of their colour.

    Every one of them struck me as people shopping for a dog like shopping for a lounge to match the decor. Had they been happy to take any of the puppies on offer they would of likely got the colour they wanted. But because they said I want "that one" or none at all, they got none at all.

    Also the red fawn dog is very bossy, so he's one I'd like to match to an owner.

    Hence I still have them and will re-advertise them in a few weeks time and will probably get people who wish to skip the very young puppy stage.

    I just got off the phone to deb at blue moon collies she said she could put me on a waiting list for a pet pup or I should find another breeder for my ideal coloring or maybe i should rescue a working BC 1 year old and if i wanted she would be happy to look at it for me I'm not sure what i want to do now

    Well the answer they gave you sounds promising to me. I like people who have an interest in an entire breed not just selling their own dogs.

    Hasn't that been the prefered breeder since last time? Get on her waiting list, and find a way to meet her.

    What's with the 3 hour drive water bowl thread? I thought you'd found a puppy?

    I am glad you asked this question as I have been wondering if you can specify colour.

    The breed I want tobe my first purebred (well my dad had one in the past but my own) comes in two colours and I dont really like em in one of the colours so was wondering if you can specify colour LOL

    It wont be for a few years yet anyway and by then I may have slid back to one of my other breds (I chop and change between a few faves...I could own em all but when you only want one dog it can be hard to decide which one that time lol)

    sorry I did not mean to sound like I had found one I was planing ahead

    yes she has always been my perfect breeder and she is 3 hrs away so was trying to plain out how I was going to get the pup

    but now I have another problem my hubby wants me to look into getting a GSD over a BC as he wants a protector dog so I think this was a sign or something I feel like my heads spinning with puppy stuff and I'm back to squire one
