This is Gypsie (left) and Spunky (right). Gypsie is of unknown origin and Spunky is a five-year-old Spitz / Terrier mix.
In the upper left: Gizmo (American Eskimo, had been abandoned by owner); working downward: Nakita and Emmy (Emmy is looking down; both are rescue pups); upper right: Spanky (14 years old, found on doorstep); coming down: Ms. Sadie (adopted from pound) and last but not least, my pal Charlie (rescue pup).
We are all rescue pups and we have the best owners on earth!
This picture really does prove that size doesn't matter, because Gemma (black-and-white Shih Tzu with the pink collar) rules this family...and the two big dogs, Roscoe the black Lab / Border Collie cross and Denali the Rottie, are very careful not to get in Gemma's way. Pucio, the other Shih Tzu and Gemma's natural son, makes sure his mom is well looked after. These are our children, as the real ones have grown up and moved away. We love them all dearly.
