Since Borders have been covered, I'll post some Aussies!

Most of these come from WorkingAussieSource.com



Boy is that a familiar sight, haha. (Shelby 'heads' other dogs a lot. Looks scary, but she never makes contact.)




And this one is from the beginning of the book Marley and Me by John Grogan. Of course, Marley was a handful that John didn't expect, since he was comparing him to his childhood dog, Shaun, who came from a random farm. I read the whole passage about Shaun thinking how much he sounded like my own dog and my childhood dog Bebe who, in retrospect, was also probably an Aussie cross. I turned the page and saw the picture and lo and behold:



Yeah, that picture kind of speaks for itself!!

There was plenty of interbreeding between Aussies and Borders, as well as other herding breeds, right through the 70's and even today on farms where people don't care about papers, just working ability.

German Pinscher: This is of a Doberman, however, with the exception of a difference between height and weight the over all look was the same.

Queen Victoria's Dash

Dash was the name of Queen Victoria’s beloved Tricolor Cavalier. Dash’s tombstone is inscribed with the following message written by the Queen herself:

"Here lies Dash, the favorite spaniel of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, by whose command this memorial was erected.
He died on the 20thDecember 1840 in his ninth year. His attachment was without selfishness, his playfulness without malice, his fidelity without deceit.

Reader, if you would live beloved and die regretted, profit by the example of Dash.”

Ann's Son, the "first new Cavalier"

In 1928, the dog named Ann's Son, owned by Mrs. Amice Pitt became the standard for the breed. He was never beaten in his show career. He contributed greatly to the development of the "Resurrected" Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Ann's Son almost missed this, for in his younger days he was sold to an actress. She found him so destructive, however, that she returned him and exchanged him for a Pomeranian. And so, Ann's Son became the foundation stone upon which the new breed was built. From him, came Champion Daywell Roger, the first champion in the breed and the sire of eleven champions. Most Cavaliers go back to this line.
