My third litter was Wanna'be Moody Blue of Bonza bred to Bonza Tawny Port.
This is a bad picture of her, I can't find any others for some reason. She has a perfect topline.
Tawny is a full sized Aussie,and has an elegance and topline (don't let her picture fool you) that I wanted to bring in to the minis, as well as coming from good working lines. I felt that by breeding the two of them, both with perfect backs and toplines, I could lock that trait in, and worry about size in the next generation. I bred Tawny once, thinking that I could then breed back to her offspring. Unfortunately only one of her pups (Lady) was bred, but, due to circumstances beyond my control none of Lady's pups were bred. To me this is a shame, she was a special dog. I only mention this litter because her daughter Lady is such an outstanding dog, embodying what the Aussie is all about.
The nicest pup in this litter was Bonza For My Lady. Lady is a very special girl. I was unable to keep her, she needed a full-time job that I couldn't give her, so she became a hearing ear dog for a college student. They are very happy together, which is what breeding is all about, placing dogs in loving homes, knowing how much happiness they have brought to others. It's even better when you know the dog you placed is providing such an important service.
