Border Collie Genetics

A blue merle colored Border Collie pup.

Today I did the most interesting study of genetics in Biology! I applied what I learned to the Border Collie puppies we raised for a couple years. We had a wide range of colors: black and white, blue and white, and blue merles. I could try to explain it here, but it's easier to cover it all by referring you to a website:   http://www.bordercolliesociety.com/index_breedcolor.htm.   If you're a lover of science and animals, you'll enjoy this! :-)
