One reason I haven’t posted for several weeks now is because of this little monster:
She doesn’t really look like a monster in that photo, but she can be when she’s awake at 6:30am and ready for a biting match.
Corey and I have had Sadie for almost four weeks now. We got her at eight weeks old, when she was a bit pudgier:
But she’s already lost a bit of her puppy fat and is getting leaner. Her mother is an Australian Cattle Dog (also known as a Blue Heeler) and her father is a black Lab Retriever. I can’t wait to see what she looks like as she grows, because it doesn’t seem to be a common mix. It could get intense though – she’s going to have a lot of energy and will need a lot of exercise. The Blue Heeler in her will probably want to nip at our heels even as an adult. But she is also lovely and I love her and I want to play with her all the time (except for when she bites me). The hardest part is that I want her to cuddle with me on the couch but she’s not allowed on yet… even though I find her asleep on the couch when I get out from the shower.
A leaf-eating photo from Gatineau Park:
I knit when she’s asleep. Expect some photos to come…
