She's the one pure bred dog on the property - she belonged to my mother-in-law - and she knows it. She wields this superiority over the rest of the mutts. She is an alpha female. She is wily and smart and knows how to open the food canister with her nose.
BUT. Did I mention how smart she is? How determined and athletic? I have seen her make jumps and take dares like no other dog. She fears nothing. She has so much pluck it breaks my heart. She goes on long runs with Opa on those stubby little legs.
And she loves snow. She refused to come in the first day it snowed. She was basking.
