Jazz's puppies pictured here at just a couple of days old.
She had a smaller litter this time and had 2 pattern whites, (we expected one or
two!) and a normal blue merle male and black tri female. The pattern whites have
color everywhere they need it, on their ears and eyes. The blue merle
pattern white is NOT a homozygous merle. That is a totally different gene
and genetically impossible when one of the parents is a tri. Check out the
links below for more info on these interesting genetics!

I have kept back a female out of
Jazz & Booger's last litter
and at 6 months she only weighs 11 lbs
and is 11 inches tall. A friend of mine has the pattern white girl
from the last litter and she is also very small!
I've done quite a bit of
research on aussie color genetics, but hadn't heard of color
headed whites (or pattern whites) out of a merle to tri
breeding. I want to share with you what I found!
Apparently, since Jazz has heavy ticking, this enhances her
chance to throw pattern whites especially when bred to a dog
that carries genes for more white trim as apposed to a dog that
carries for less white. (less white is a more dominant
gene) These dogs are not merle to merle, see her
first litter with Opossum, they had a
normal litter. (actually with little white.) For more info on
Pattern White Dogs
For another interesting page,
(Colored Headed Aussies and Pattern Whites)
An interesting thing I
found on that page... Minus Modifiers Take some time
to look at these pages. They are very interesting!
There is a lot of info about other aussie genetics on there too!
Minus modifiers act to remove pigment. White
toes on Labradors and Dobes are often the result of minus
modifiers acting on an otherwise self colored animal which lacks
any white spotting genes. If a spotting pattern is present, such
as the Irish spotting pattern (or ticking) in most collie
breeds, any minus modifiers present will enhance its effect and
may be responsible for collars and blazes exceeding their
