We took Aibhne to the vet Saturday for her last round of puppy shots. She weighs an astonishing 29.1 pounds.
Debate still ranges as to which breeds contribute to her genetic makeup. We feel fairly certain that there's some Ridgeback and Labrador in her but there may be some others hiding in there. Her tongue is spotted, her tail curls and has this odd white undercoat on just her tail. There is quite an extensive list of breeds that can have the tongue spots, including both Ridgeback and Labrador. The number of dog breeds that have both a curly tail and a white undercoat is almost as long. So, she could be anything. We're considering getting her DNA tested to find out.
She is STILL not water tight. She has her good days and her bad but now that the weather is getting better, we're planning on leaving all of the dogs outside during the day. It worked with Myrddin and we have hopes that the boys examples will finally sink in if she's outside all day.
Here's a picture of Youngest and her baby:
She can sit and shake but we really need to start teaching her stay. She likes to charge out the front door when we get home. Come to think of it, we might work on "Come" first since that seems to be a problem for her. If she's busy with something she just ignores you.
Any way, she's doing well and we'll be getting her spayed in a week or two. She's able to keep up with the boys as they chase birds or squirrels. And she loves the kiddie pool that we bought them. She'll come charging across the yard and leap into it. Friday, she chased her tail while in the pool and it was hilarious to watch.
I hope you all have a Happy Mother's Day.
