My Youngest 4legger
This is my youngest 4legger, Ally. She just turned four in December and is beginning to nap more. I guess in terms of canine development she is equivalent to a twenty something human. Don’t get me wrong, she is still active and when given the opportunity will run circles … literally … around me in hopes that I will try to tag her.
She is the only pup I have ever chosen to adopt, I needed a companion for Mykey so I went to the Humane Society and chose a puppy for him to help me raise. Turned out that he loves puppies.
This is the part that really threw me for a loop, upon asking if they knew anything about her lineage I was told her mother was German Shepherd and her father Husky.
Her coat is nothing like either breed plus her ears won’t stand erect as it should for both breeds. I have come to find out that she does have some Husky tendencies though, she loves to run and she verbalizes much the same as a Husky. She loves water, I have the hardest time in the summer when I try to water the trees, she will do all she can to bite the stream of water and eventually ends up sopping wet.
Oh well, I don’t think I will ever find out what all she may have in her lineage but at least I know she is a sweetheart … oh, did I tell you she has one huge booming bark? Yeah, to listen to her you’d think you were coming upon a really huge dog, but she only weighs about 48 or so pounds, not really all that big.
Well, doesn’t she look like she’s enjoying her nap?
