    Meet Lucky and star, a friend of mine's dogs whom I frequently walk/brush/care for. Jill got them from a shelter, they look like siblings but we don't know for sure. Jill was told they were "Border Collie Mixes" but that doesn't really give a good idea of them. They are very bonded with Jill, love just about everybody, but have a very independent "Pff I'm not coming, this bush is WAY more interesting." streak to them.

    So, here's a video and some imagery of the pair.

    Lucky. They both have doublecoats, small triangular ears, and a slightly "pitbullish" style mouth.

    Star shows the blocky head better than Lucky.

    star carries her tail in a sickle, often above her back. Lucky's is usually straight out behind him, rarely curves or held very high.

    Star's coat is a slate-grey, sometimes fades to reddish in some areas (they are outside a lot) but her pigmentation is black. She's got lots of white markings with a cream undercoat.

    Lucky is a type of sable. His coat is red, pigment black, he has a few white markings, and his fur is banded with black over most of his coat, but not very heavily. His undercoat is red.

    What do you think? They are a bit of a mystery to me. Those ears really throw me off.

    Yeah, they sound like dolphins when they want to go for a walk! They are really funny.

    So funny! Bella when she excited for something she silent whines.. It's like a whine without noise hard to describe. My last boxer sometime did it.

    I think the silent whine is more annoying then actual whining. haha
