We thought Sandy was about seven or even eight but the vet thinks she's only five or six because her teeth look so good. Cool! Since we've had her a full year now she was able to get the three year vaccine. Last year, she only got a one year vaccine.
Since we didn't have any records of Skyy's shots, we decided to start her on the full puppy series and to worm her too. The vet told us she was about ten weeks old now because she hasn't lost any of her puppy teeth or gotten any adult teeth yet. We were thinking she might be eleven or twelve weeks old. So much for knowing our dog's ages. LOL. Sheila is listed as the owner for both dogs and we got a chuckle when we realized: Sheila is slang for girl in Australia and she owns two Australian dogs: Sandy, an Australian Cattle dog/Airedale Terrier cross, and Skyy, a Blue Heeler/Australian Sheepdog cross.
Both dogs were very well behaved as we waited in line for almost an hour with the other dogs and their owners. There was no crying or barking, pulling or restlessness from our dogs like some of the others present. Skyy laid down at our feet and snoozed while Sandy stood sentinel-like right beside us. I found it interesting watching and talking to the other owners about their dogs. One little, older lady came with a Bernese Mountain dog, almost bigger than she was, with baling twine for a leash. Funny, because we couldn't find Sandy's leash and I actually thought about using twine myself.
We are still debating how big Skyy will grow up to be. However, the other day I saw a dog that looked just like what I think she will look like when she grows up. What do you think?
Matter of fact, the dog was running down the street away from us
and then he stopped and came over to us for a close-up view. Since this dog lives several hundred miles from where the puppy came from, I seriously doubt it's related, although it must be the same breed. Crazy looking, huh?
