Hi! That's me, Dolly, in the picture below on the left side of the photo box, and me, Sally (on the right)...a couple of sisters living in Australia. Our human mom is Erin, the main brain behind this blog, and she asked us to tell you a little bit about ourselves.
We were born November 2013. The human owners at the time claimed that our doggie birth mother was full-blooded Great Dane, and our doggie daddy was 1/2 Great Dane, 1/2 German Shepherd. We don't know. There may be some Great Dane and German Shepherd in our mix, but we are pretty sure that we are a mix of other breeds too. We claim to be 100% mutt and we're happy with that.
When our human mama and daddy came to look at us as puppies, they couldn't choose between the two of us, and we both went home with them. We're pretty happy about not being separated, because we were both really nervous and timid at first. We didn't leave each others' sides. We're told that Dolly was named in honor of Dolly Parton because she's a strong, lovable woman. Sally is from the song Mustang Sally, and it sounds like a good sister name to Dolly.
Hi, Dolly here. My favorite things to do are jump on my mom (even though I'm not supposed to jump), eat, get bones, and sit (because it's the only command I know). I am aware of my short-comings...that is, I'm not the most intelligent beast on the block. But, I am playful, sweet, and my mama thinks I'm pretty. My eyes are hazel, but I have a little bit of greyish-blue mixed into one. Kinda suits me since I'm one mixed-up mutt.
Hi, I'm Sally. I'm a little bigger and taller than my sister. I am stronger physically, and I have a more confidant personality too. I know how to shake hands and sit. I don't try to break into the house the way Dolly does (by busting open the screen door), but when the door opens, I think that means you must be inviting me in. My mama thinks I look like a deep thinker because my brow always furrows. My favorite things to do are to get treats, eat, wrestle, and show Dolly that I'm the boss.
We are the best of friends. We like to go for walks, sun ourselves, nap, sleep, eat, wrestle, and tear up things. Yes, we have a problem with chewing up things we shouldn't. Anything with stuffing or that rips easily, we destroy. Like collars. We prefer not to wear collars, so we chew them off of each other.
Our human mama likes to call us the Destructive Duo. Pillows have been destroyed. Also, four different blankets, Grand Dad's coat, our human brother's Avengers t-shirt, some random pieces of wood, a broom, and a leather love seat. We are given bones, rawhides, and chew toys all the time. They don't last. They are no match for our chewing prowess. We don't try to hide from our destructiveness. We embrace it by, you know, laying smack down in the middle of the destruction.
Sometimes, we regret destroying things. Our human parents are so nice. They've given us lots of things to sleep on. We've destroyed all of them. But, when it's time to lay down, take a nap, and go to sleep, we use what's left.
Sometimes, we get to go inside. We are so excited that we can't calm down. We circle and circle around the house - to the kitchen, the dining room, the living rooms - and around again. We have to be supervised because there are new things to chew inside...like rugs. And, we like to eat the cats' food and poop. Yep, we stick our heads inside the litter trays and eat cat poop. This is usually the time we get kicked out of the house again. That's okay. We've got two big yards to run and play in. We're a happy duo.
We'd love to meet other canines that are as special and as loved as we are. Join my mama's link-up, so we can hear about other crazy canines in bloggerland.
And, if kitties are your thang, Sally and Dolly are letting their kitty brothers and kitty sister join in the fun - tune in next week - linking up April 17th
Enough about them.....
