She is definitely a dog and no matter the breed, she appears to be happy with you.
That's is true, and a good dog too. I did come across this interesting article on Aussie Shepherd history when researching English Shepherds. Both breeds developed more or less at the same time from the same Uk origin Collie/shepherd. Australian Shepherd History - Herding on the Web.

Very interesting though I have not read the whole thing but it is a different account and more thorough than what I have read before.
Her intelligence constantly astounds me and sometimes gets her in trouble.
One thing I have not been able to find much information on is that Native Americans considered them 'holy' and would not eat them.

I hadn't seen the Native American view of Aussies has holy before, but I have seen that attributed to some tribes with respect to breeds of dogs that existed in the Americas long before the arrival of British Collie breeds and development of Aussies and English Shepherds. Not A lot of detail other than some tribes revered the wolf and so saw the dog and its affinity for humans as kind of a cross between the revered wild wolf and man. Other tribes did eat dogs.

As for Aussie and Eng Shepherds, I came across today this blog post again comparing the origins of the two breeds.

The pics in that article really show the similarity. I've always told Sadie that she is lucky to not have a tail because I've never stepped on it or closed it in a door.
Wonderful dogs
