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!
