You may remember when we did the Wisdom DNA test on Rosie. The results came back 12% Akita, 12% Labrador Retriever and 12% Fox Terrier. The remaining 64% was a jumble of dog breeds, so many that they could not be singled out. Pretty sure that describes a mutt!
I happen to believe that 64% is composed of love. Lots and lots of love.
That's true of all my dogs - they're all made of love - and definitely true of the mutts in my life. And there have been quite a few of them. None shown here, but still loved just as much - are Spanky and Sherman. Both were adopted from animal shelters. My heart dog, Lucy, wasn't a shelter dog, but she was a gorgeous mutt!
Jeffie and Rosie both came from the same animal shelter and were found via Petfinder. You can fetch Jeffie's Petfinder story for puppy pictures!
Tucker was not a shelter dog. He was a stray puppy my vet was sure was a bait dog. Poor guy got lucky when he found his way to our front porch. A bit of Lab? Chow? Who knows. What we know for sure: we had 14 beautiful years together.
Benji holds the distinction of being both my very first mutt and my very first shelter dog. I saw him during my very first visit to an animal shelter. It definitely was my lucky day!
