11 yrs ago my father-in-law lost his best friend Zeus. He was hit by a car that never stopped and he ran back to my husband and father-in-law and died at their feet. So last summer we got a beautiful little black and white aussie pup. That's all Pd talks about, how much he likes that dog. So we talked him into starting to look at getting another pup. A friend of mine listed these adorable heeler/border pups...So I called my mother-in-law and we went and got this little guy that evening. Hes sooo cute. Hes smart too. And to top it off we get to puppy sit when they are gone!
