We have, yet another, new addition here on Midnight Calico Farm. This one I went and searched out. She is a German Shepherd cross puppy. She is 10 1/2 weeks now. We found her on the Manitoba German Shepherd Rescue website. I have had a deep love of GSDs for many, many years. Our last dog, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge this past March, was a pure blood German line GSD. OldWoman was 14 when we had to let her go and it was a very emotional decision for me to look at new dogs. OldWoman was my Heart Dog, and no dog could ever replace her. It wasn’t until I could wrap my heart around the fact that having a new canine friend *wasn’t* replacing her that I was ready to accept another dog into my life.
Then we met Daphne…this little tank of a pup was wiggley and lovable and snuggly…and damn, I fell in love. 3 weeks later, she came home to the Farm.
Her Mom is pure GSD, and well, no one knows what her Dad is…I’m leaning towards a mutt mix of border collie and bernese mountain dog.
