    This was the culprit with my senior dogs, who spend quite a bit of time out in the yard. We discovered our retiree neighbors were tossing their stale bread over the fence, half a loaf at a time!...

    PUPPEH!! :D

    Congratulations!! Shepherd cross looks accurate to me. I've had several purebred BMCs (which is a relatively rare breed)... and these pups definitely aren't.

    Good luck with her!

    Respect is important in any relationship.

    When it becomes clear that I can't respect the other person, I always end up distancing myself.
