I have two rescue mutts and they’re basically the best dogs in the whole world. I often found people asking me “what breed is your dog?”. I would explain that I thought my little girl was a basenji mix and my little boy was a mix of who really knows what, I wasn’t sure. I was told that his mother was a rottweiler, but that often gets a good laugh. Like most parents of rescue dogs, I didn’t have a good answer. So I was thinking about the best way to describe my girl Margi. That’s when I realized she definitely has a motto:
“I might be a Mutt, but I’m 100% female dog.”
That was really a perfect description of her. When I adopted her I assumed that her new brother, Riedi, would welcome her to his home of four years and show her the ropes. Boy was I WRONG. She came in and took over and made it clear she was his new boss. I love her to death, but she is awfully bossy (like mother, like daughter?). She will hog all of the toys and deer antlers and I have to force her to share them. When her brother is getting in the trash and I have to reprimand him and tell him to “leave it”, Margi will often get after him and make sure he really heard me! I have to stop her from barking at him, but I know that she is just trying to make him listen to me!
This is how the first Official MuttBut was born. What kind of MuttBut do you have?
