Sunday Afternoon Dog Blogging: Guest Blogger Edition

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

As I told you two weeks ago, we had only lived at my country place a few weeks when, while we were pouring the slab for our shop, a stray blue heeler/border collie mix showed up and got pregnant by a black Labrador belonging to one of the neighbors.  The Lab’s name was Stampy, so we at first referred to her as “Stampy’s lady friend”, and when we realized she was going to stay we simply shortened that to “Lady”.  She’s actually quite difficult to take a good picture of; she always seems to either want to turn her back to the camera, or to run up to whoever is taking the picture to be petted.  So I actually had to go out with the camera yesterday to get a third decent shot; it took twelve tries.  The first one is nursing her puppies in March of 2003, and the second at the construction of my new house in August of 2009.

    That blue heeler/border collie mix looks a lot like a German Shorthaired Pointer

    #1 – She might be that; we don’t know because she was a stray. The mix I mentioned was the vet’s best guess.

    I’d guess Boxer with a hint of Dogo Argentino. j/k. Beautiful girl!

    I would guess German Shorthair Pointer too. Love her eyes in the second picture. Very pretty dog.

    As a GSP owner and lover of the breed, I would agree that there are definite similarities in the face and head shape.

    Aw she’s such a distinguished dame. Her head and eyes make me think of a either a GSP or Lab.

    One of my old dogs, (a Lab mix) seemed to really hate to have his picture taken. He’d always close his eyes or turn away and get up and move. I have an amazing collection of dog skull / neck / butt photos. :P
