It’s been a while since I shared pictures of Daphne. She turned 1 last month and has grown into such a beautiful pup.

So much energy!! Yikes! Most days, we play fetch for a good 45 minutes before I can get any work done outside. We have an extra-large sized Kong toy that I throw and she chases. Sticks work too, but they are predictable where they land…I like the Kong because it bounces all over the place. Makes Daphne think. 😉

When we met Daphne, she was the biggest puppy in her litter. We thought she was going to be a huge shepherd…nope. She’s about the size of a coyote. A huge difference from our OldWoman, who was 100lbs in her prime.

Like I said, she can run for this thing for ages. I have to watch her though. Since she broke her paw last year, when she gets tired, she limps. That’s when I slow the game down and let her rest a little. Or call water breaks.

Relax Puppy! Breathe!

It’s only when she’s tired, that I can take a decent portrait shot of Daphne…

She's such a happy girl. :)

Max, however, has this reaction when she gets too close…

  1. I adore the shepherds. I have one full blooded shepherd and one GSD mix myself. They are such wonderful dogs.
