Designer Dogs

July 9, 2010

I met a new dog today. To tell the truth, I don’t think she was all that interested in meeting me. We were outside the VA Hospital in Oklahoma City and she seemed far more interested in watching the foot traffic and guarding her human dad from any possible threat. But she let me greet her and she gave my hand a cursory lick when I insisted on telling her how beautiful she is. Her name is Chloe.

From the look of her and feet of her coat, I’d guess that Chloe is mostly yellow lab (fade-to-pink nose and yellow coat) and some kind of heeler (stocky build, rough coat), but really, that’s just a guess. Chances are that Chloe has a bit of everything in her. 50% lab, 25% heeler, 5% rat terrier, 10% Australian Shepherd, 10% man-about-town, 100% precious and wonderful soul.

She’s a labraheelsheprat – a designer dog if ever I’ve seen one.
