Jai ma!
These houndlets are truly meant to be and to be with you. To be both born on 10th August - good lil leo terrers of the 10th - and to get through to the other side of parvo!
I would feel that the universe had smiled on me as it has twice with my hounds. As long as it's the three of us at the end of the day anything else is a bonus.
and I get to say first how drop dead gorgeous both of them are.

very cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dec 3, 2006 aussie fan
i don't see any heeler in her. i've raised two aussie pups and she's aussie all the way afaict -- the coat, intelligent expression, limpid gaze, the bob tail, length of body compared to height, and the shape of her legs in the 3rd picture from the end is aussie aussie aussie 100%. excellent dogs -- unique! -- but make sure you socialize her early because they tend to be VERY wary of strangers. mine never approach strangers -- didn't as puppies and still don't -- but immediately become lovey dovey and act like long lost friends if the person introduces him- or herself nicely. they don't play with strange dogs either. not a foolish dog bone in their bodies. all business. if i take them to the dog park they immediately get to work herding all the other dogs lol.

Beautiful puppy! She looks like a real character if the pix w/her sis and her cat are indicative of her personality! I love the baby pic as well. What a yummy little puppy. Enyoy!!!
Dec 3, 2006 Ruby-s mom
I'm not seeing a whole lot of heeler in her, but I do see it in her sister. They're both gorgeous, though. Congrats on getting through parvo - glad they're all okay.

Aussies are such an amazing breed. After growing up with them, I never wanted any other kind of dog so of course I have one now - my first bi-color (b&w) - so different from the merles. They truly are the most intelligent breed I've ever met. If you aren't stimulating them mentally, they will drive you bonkers so give her a job and keep her busy.

Enjoy her puppyhood while you can, lol!

First of all, Spicey is a really cute dog and no doubt a great companion, but Daily Puppy is gonna run out of space with all these hyphenated mixes. Just call the dogs what they are: mutts. There is nothing wrong with mutts; I grew up with a series of adorable ones, cuter than most "purebreds." However, all these blah, blah, blah...mix descriptions are getting annoying.
Dec 3, 2006 Evelyn
Aussies are such fine little folks. Enjoy these sweet things.
Dec 3, 2006 Reedy
The cuteness overwhelms me.

What a beautiful dog, never seen a red merle before, what a lovely colour
Dec 3, 2006 ellie
gorgeous dog.
Dec 3, 2006 Lys
Snoop -
If all the mixed breed puppies were just listed as "mutt," the first comment in every post would be "what kind of dog is that?" I'm pretty sure it's just a description... no one is asking that AKC start registering aussie/blue heeler crosses. Spicey's mom happens to have a better idea than most of us mutt parents about her baby's history, that's all.

Spicey is a beauty. Thanks for sharing her with us!
Dec 3, 2006 Bonnie Chances mom
What a beautiful pup. You are very lucky to have her and I am sure she will bring you so much joy. Huggs and KIsses to Spicey

Spicey is sooooooooo adorable!!!! She should get 11 biscuits!! AWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!
Dec 3, 2006 Julia

I agree with Lys. The term "mutt" is not descriptive. That would be like describing all people as "person". The identification of some components in the mixture is informative. After all, you could go one step back and just identify all of these dogs, purebred or otherwise, as just "dog of the day".

I think sometimes people misunderstand why others describe the crosses. It is not because we are in any way ashamed of our cross/mixes. It is because we, as are most dog aficianadoes, are interested in more detail. Who among us with an adopted mutt didn't try to figure out what was mixed in there? :) Plus, it's fun to come up with cute and descriptive mix names. So there. :)

To Spicey--

*pbbbbbbffftttttt* (sound of me applying copious tummy raspberries to her and her sister)

I'm in tears right now. My neighboor had two Australian Shepards, both sisters whom they got when the pups were just 7weeks old. Chelsei, who is much older that her sister Roxie, had severe arthritus and hip displacement. Despite her ailments, she was the perkiest pup I ever knew. She got to the point where she could no longer walk without feeling severe pain and often times she would collapse because her legs gave out.

Chelsea was put to sleep this morning at 8:07 am eastern time. Roxie, her family, and I all greatly miss her. Take care of your pup because they will make your life a million times more joyful, just because your their family.Chelsea looked exactly like Spicey in her younger years and Roxie resembles the other puppy. Thank you so much for posting these pictures; they make me so happy to know how happy Chelsea once was and hopefully still is.

Spicey is quite a character, enjoy her and I hope you both have wonderful lives together for many years to come.
Happy Holidays

There's nothing wrong with mutts . . . my favorite breed is mutts! But, it's interesting to know what goes into a particular "mutt" and it can be helpful in caring for a dog. I expect my rat terrier mix to by really energetic, unfriendly with dogs until she knows them, and loyal to one or at most two people. I also would never ever trust her with, say, a baby bunny - even if I was sitting right there. I also expect my chihuahua-corgi-beagle(?) to be territorial, hostile to dogs outside his own family, and to be much more cold sensitive than his sister.

In terms of describing them on the Daily Puppy, I know I'm more apt to look at terriers and chihuahuas, because it's just fun to hear stories from other parents of these dogs which are like mine. Being hung up on breeds and breeding is, imho, silly. But wanting to know your dog is not.
Dec 3, 2006 Lisa
She is absolutely beautiful! If I wasn't melting at the sight of her cuteness, I'd be so jealous! The head tilt, and the pics with the cat and her sister are priceless! Although I love the blue contrast, can I suggest making her next collar a red one to match her name and lovely coat color? Of course she's adorable no matter what she's wearing. =)
Dec 3, 2006 rachel
She is so cute!
Dec 3, 2006 Spicey-s Mom
Thank you all so very much for your nice comments!! Her eyes were blue when she was a baby then changed to the greenish color they are now. I don't really see the Heeler in her either but do see it in her sister! Snoop I have nothing against mutts. I would personaly rather have a mutt than a purebred. Like others have said though if you don't put the mix others will be asking what it is. I love seeing what breeds they are be mutts or purebreeds! Danielle I am so sorry about your neighbors Aussie. I'm sure they gave her a great life while she was with them. We lost our little Chihuahua/Daschund mix 2 weeks ago to a dog attack and Spicey has really helped me with losing him. I still miss him and am glad I have her to make me happy. I'm glad you all like her and am glad I got to share her with everyone!

What a doll! She looks like a future Agility star. You should check out agility with her as Aussies are one of the best breeds to play agility with.

Aw how cute! I fostered lab mix who I think was either australian shepherd or red heeler. Not sure. She was awesome though. Spicey and her sister Sizzler both look like awesome dogs too!!
Dec 3, 2006 Marie
Spicey, that is a perfect name for you. You look like you are covered in spices with your coloring. Love the pic with the cat. You are a really cute doggy Spicey. You have a such a cute face.
Dec 3, 2006 Spicey-s Mom
Thank you all so much for your comments! You all are so nice!! Yes that was her first time out in the snow and she just LOVED it! She was rolling all around in it. You can see some more pictures of her if you would like at: http://www.dogster.c om/pet_...

I'm so sorry to hear about the pup you recently lost... it's so hard to deal with losing a pet. But, in my personal experience, having another puppy can be a big help. Best of luck with her, she's just gorgeous!

What beautiful puppies. Their markings are just awesome. YOu are very very lucky.
Dec 4, 2006 LabMom
What a unique and beautiful dog. both of them actually, however, Spicey's coloring takes the cake!
Dec 4, 2006 pom mommy 128 dog luvver
I used to have an Aussie shepard, by the way, (I forgot to say this) and I found it very aggressive. Her name was Rusty and she's was very nibbly and bit a lot of my friends and family. My 3-year-old had to have 6 stiches on her hand because of Rusty. I would watch out for Spicey because she looks like a troublemaker. You might want to give her to a pound or something.....She might cause a lot of trouble later on.
Dec 4, 2006 Susan
Hi - I love Aussie dogs. I have a red heeler mix myself. I don't know what she is a mix of because I got her from the dog pound. She has the shape, markings, and personality of an Australian Cattle Dog, but she is taller than she should be. My dog is white with the spotted red marks on her body, with two red halves of her face. What is a red merle or a blue merle?
Dec 5, 2006 Zoe
Awwwwww! Spicey is the one of the cutest things I have ever seen!! He's adorable. A red merle is spicey coloured and a bleu merle is like spicey but gray/ black.

Every dog is different. Just because yours bit doesn't mean spicey is a bitter. Lady, my Australian Shepherder, was so gentle and loving. Her down fall was she liked to herd cars. We lived on 25 acres of land. We let her run free like our huskey. They would protect the little birds. Play with the cats. Go down to the creek. My dad had a car lot at the house . Lady would herd the cars as they came down the driveway. One day she herded a car on the expressway because she decided to travel and wasn't so lucky. She never bit us or any of the animals. She was happy and always had a smile on her face.
Dec 6, 2006 Spicey-s Mom
Pom mommy,
Well first of all I have had Aussies for awhile. I knew what I was taking on when I took her and I would NEVER take her to the pound because she "looks" like a troublemaker. Spicey IS NOT a bad dog. She is a real lover and is great at listening to commands. We train her and she DOES NOT bite or herd anything. Besides this is what they are bred for. We have a 3 year old son and 2 cats and she does great with them all. The only reason dogs bite people are because they aren't disciplined.

Susan, Spicey is a great example of a Red Merle. They have a reddish background with reddish brown spots all over. Her sister Sizzler is a great example of a blue merle. A grayish background with black spots all over, also sometimes brown on the legs. Your dog sounds like the color of a Red Heeler, Australian cattle Dog.

What fluffy, beautiful coat, and face!! You are too lucky! Give Spicey a pat for me. <3
Feb 19, 2007 Lydia
Oh yes, and do NOT take this dog to the pound. "Oh, looks like a trouble maker." Wow, you've got to be kidding me. Whoever posted that is just jealous of this puppies cuteness. Puppies do no wrong.
May 27, 2007 GoldenLove12
I love her!! She looks liek shes been playing in the dirt with those lil brown socks! Absolutely adorable and I love her coat! How in the world can that person even tell if Spicey is a troublemaker? Just because she couldnt keep a handle on her own dog doesnt mean all dogs are like that. My grandma had a mutt that had a Loott of Aussie Shepard in her and the only thing she did was jump but she was absolutely a sweet dog from tip to tail. I know that you will love her, Mommy, and I know you wont listen to ignorant people who think they know things and are bitter against their own downfalls of training =)
Aug 29, 2007 ceallaig
She's a gloriously beautiful little girl, and you know the saying: Variety is the 'spice' of life!

There is nothing wrong with a 'mutt' -- my Chester is a Lhasa/GOK (god only knows), and he's my little angel. I agree with the above posters -- we all like to know what the mix is, it's fun. And from a practical standpoint, knowing your dog's heritage can be really helpful in dealing with health issues. So let's just keep all the hyphenates the way they are, shall we?

To the poster who advocated sending Spice to the pound ... I won't even dignify that with a comment, most folks have already said what I'm thinking...

Aussie & Heeler! Nice mix!!! =-)

Thank you all so much for the comments about our Spice girl!! She is now a little over a year old and has turned into a great dog!! I may have written this already I'm not sure, but if you'd like to see updated pictures and stuff of her you can visit her Dogster page at: http://www.dogster.c om/dogs...

Thank you all again soo much, and yes, Aussie/Heelers a very nice mix!!! : )
