Bindi – A Great Australian Cattle Dog Name
by Linda Collins
'Bindi-eye' - An Australian perennial plant that grows in lawns and grassy areas which bears a small, burrlike seed.
Colloquially, it is the prickly seed-case that is referred to as a 'Bindi' or 'Bindi-eye'.
Bindi is a great name for an Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) as it describes something that is small, sharp, and gets stuck in (into) the feet! (Also Bindy, Bindy-eye or Bindii.)
This is the name I have in mind for my next ACD puppy.
