Are you wondering what makes my wonder dog so wonderful? Unconditional love, my friends, that's what it is. I know, I know, everyone thinks their dog is better than everyone else's and people are usually wrong about this. Definitely, I know, my dog is better than your dog? Why? Because she is mine!
We got our dog about 18 months ago from the local Humane Society. She is part Australian cattle dog and possibly part German Shepherd. We know the cattle dog part is true as she has the cattle herding instinct to nip at heels of running children. Mostly we have broken her of this habit, though she still nips at Noah. We don't worry so much as he needs a good nip now and again. plus, she doesn't bare teeth or bite or slobber on heels, she just noses them and scares you when you don't expect it.
I tried to fix her eyes before I posted this photo, but they appeared un fixable, so you'll just have to believe that they aren't really this blue, but are a beautiful deep brown. She is soft and sweet and loves to be on my lap or curled up next to me when I nap on the couch. Oddly, she does not bark. She can, and has, but just doesn't as a genearl rule. I wonder if it comes from the ancestors' years of herding cattle and realizing that cattle don't speak dog language.
I am supposed to be in my computer library looking for a photo of myself today, but found my dog and decided to post her for now. She doesn't sit still so if you tell her to sit and walk away, she'll follow, so the photo had to be taken at close range, from above. Maybe I don't it still for long either and that is why I am having so much trouble finding a photo of myself. I am like the Yeti, or Bigfoot, there are internet sightings that lead you to believe in my existence, but very little photographic proof.
