This past weekend, Sadie’s family came and picked her up. They really missed her and couldn’t stand to be without here any longer. How depressing to have to give her back! She’s such a wonderful dog. However, when she does come into heat, they will bring her back, hopefully. They seem to want puppies as much as we do.
Monday, around noon, Steve called me at home to tell me he was bringing a dog home! What a shock! Apparently, someone at the ranch, who recently moved, left a part Australian Shepherd---just abandoned her. She had been put in a small fenced area that was all muddy and nasty. We think she’s about a year old and she seems quite a people-oriented dog---very lavish with the kisses---very sweet and a little pig-headed.
As you can see, she has the blue merle look with those weird bluish streaked eyes. Also notice the little pink spots in her nostrils that suggest a piggy nose! How cute! We think she might have some Cattle Dog in her or Blue Heeler as she has a stocky build and is very strong. Her coat is also a little coarser than an Aussie but is quite soft and nice since her bath Monday. Steve just told me he’d heard that her name had been “Rusty,” but we wanted to rename her. I think we’ve decided on Gypsy Girl. She already comes to “Girl” great. She has that mystical look about her and her past is truly a mystery to us.
