Sunday Afternoon Dog Blogging: Guest Blogger Edition

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

After buying my country place in October of 2002 I moved up here for about a year, running my escort service by phone.  And we hadn’t been here more than a few weeks when a stray blue heeler/border collie mix showed up, got pregnant by a black Labrador belonging to one of the neighbors, and whelped eight puppies in our shop in March of 2003.  Two of those pups still live here, as does the mother, and I figured I’d share pictures of them over the next few weeks.  First up is Caramel; the first shot was taken when she was 30 days old, the second when she was four and the third just two months ago (in one of her favorite warm-weather spots under the porch).

    I like dogs but the only pet I have is this really big tabby cat that decided he wanted to live at my place. What am I supposed to do? Hang out on reddit all the time?

    Carmel has a really beautiful face. Especially in the picture of her under the porch. Very pretty girl.

    Great story and a beautifuul dog, Maggie. I can tell she’s well-loved.

    I wish all dogs were rescues. They need people to love and are often thought second-class to people who need to be able to brag about AKA papers.

    My impression, anectdotally, is that mutts chosen from the Humane Society are better dogs than most pure breeds. Although the choice of dog – purebred, rescue, stray – may say more about the owners.
