The Many Phases of the Moon




Phase One:  Puppy


Approximately 5 mos old and weighing just shy of 10 pounds, she wandered in off the mountain with a stick embedded in her hip which required surgery and a stay at the vet's.  She was literally starving, surviving on various insects, our Vet told us. We actually had to tell her "NO" when she would eat Daddy Long-legs, beetles and butterflies!  









Phase Two and Three:  Puppy


Mountain Moon is Three Years old in this picture.  Her nearly black muzzle has lightened considerably and she is still just as playful as a pup!







Phase Four:  Puppy


Moon is Six Years old now still thinks she is a puppy!
She saw me with the camera and said, "Don't miss this shot, Mommy...I'm hunting...HE is playing!"






Conclusion:  Although there are many phases of the moon, my Moon apparently has one one phase...PUPPY!

Moon and Pica would probably get along well (other than the little problem of Pica being "bite-sized" to Moon!)

Happy Halloween! :)

Monn...you're so cute! She looks devoted to you after saving her life. Sometimes strays can make the very pets. Our cocker spaniel Ben was a rescue dog. He as left out in an ice storm and ended up at the shelter to be put up for adoption. He's an old man now but acts like a puppy too!
