We got this Blue Heeler/Australian Shepherd mix last year as a puppy. My wife was at a horse sale and a lady came up to her and dumped this little girl in her lap. I was unhappy about a dog in the house and the responsibility of having another dog. Now I don't see how we did without her. I never imagined that a little dog could bless a family like she has. Never a dull moment now! She leaves a little hair around, which I don't like, but the smiles she puts on our faces makes up for it.
