I Shall Call Him Squishy, and He Shall Be Mine, and He Shall Be My Squishy

My mother's dog, Dixie, a five year old chocolate lab/Australian shepherd mix with shaggy light brown fur, a sweet, boisterous personality, and a need to explore, is also apparently quite the little minx. Last night, she surprised my mother and stepfather with four 100% purebred mongrel puppies, with the likely father being a gentle, affectionate, 100 pound bull mastiff named Duke. I am hoping to get photos of them as they get themselves together, although I know I can't have a puppy just yet and I'll fall in love with one of the shaggy, big-footed pups and try to make him or her my Squishy.

On the other hand, a big goal (2.5-5 years.) is to have a small place where I can have my own. I am considering a basenji, not just for lack of shedding, but from having been around and noting the sweet, playful personality. Not to mention ears that can pick up Radio Free Europe.

And here is the proud mother, many years and many cameras ago.

Congratulations, Miss Dixie!


  1. I so need a dogfriend. I've had no dogfriend in such a sad long time.


  2. It sucks not having a little furball around, doesn't it :) Hope you find one!
