We have recently added four new blue-merle Aussie females to our family. And because we already had our baby girl, Pearl, we decided to stick to the gem name theme. Two of our new beauties came from Missouri, and their names are Jade and Opal. The other two came all the way from California, and are named Quartz and Topaz. They are all AKC-Registered and they come from great breeders. It is important to us that we ensure perfect health and genes in our dogs, so we will be having them health tested soon. The Aussie breed is very helpful on a cattle ranch, so there is plenty to do even if they never get the special job of being moms.
