She was the sweetest puppy and even though there was a lot of ruined furniture, she grew up to be the most patient dog.
She was playful, happy and loved everyone (even that time we dressed her in this big t-shirt)
One day, an adventurous dog fell in love with her and jumped the fence. That was when Tuxa got pregnant. We were surprised to see her belly grow and two months later we had this:
7 puppies were born but one of them didn’t make it. In that picture you probably can’t tell them apart but the lucky number is 6!
Almost everyone got a new home but do you see the white princess?
We kept her and because she was pure white we named her Snow.
She was the most dominant of them all and grew up to be very stubborn.
Even though her mother had a lot of work raising her, she turned out so kind and, to this day, if someone approaches her, she will wiggle her tail and beg to play.
|See: her tail just didn’t stay still 🙂|
Every time we would take them for walks people would point out how cute it was to have a black dog and a white dog. I always thought so too!
But then, something a lot more amusing happened and Snow started to have spots on her belly.
|You can see her wild personality right here!|
Eventually her fur began to grow brown in two larger areas: one around her ear and another on the top of her tail, revealing her wild and unpredictable personality.
We had a lemon tree on our backyard and their favorite thing was to chase lemons. Snow was the faster and the only one who learnt to retrieve them.
She brings everything back after catching it… the problem is to get it out of her mouth.
They would sleep together in the same little house and when it was sunny, we always new they would be laying out next to each other in the sun.
Time flew by and before we knew it, our days with Tuxa had ended. She died with almost 16 years.
The next months were really hard on all of us but especially on Snow. She never slept in the same place again and we had to buy her a new dog house.
She learnt to be alone and she still lies in the sun, with almost 13 years.
She is older but not wiser or more patient. Time didn’t change her and I’m really glad she’s still able to run and retrieve lemons!
