Tuesday, November 22nd, was Rosie's first birthday. I'd be remiss in failing to mention that she was lucky to MAKE it that far; at times, it was all I could do to not bung her in a box and ship her butt back to Texas, or down to SoCal! But, a puppy is a puppy, and I know that, so yeah, she made it to a year.
The cake was enjoyed by all (including humans), and the fuzzy bone she got as a present was destroyed in record time.
For those of you following such things, she has passed all her DNA testing with flying colours. Paw Print Genetics did the full Aussie profile (except colour; we know she's a red factored black tri) and she is clear of everything. That's step 1.
Now, she just has to make it to age 2, for her OFA's. Any more modifications to the back door, and that might prove to be a problem....
