All right, so Dixie’s mom checked in in the comments section, and it turns out I got just about everything wrong here. First off, Dixie’s a she. (Which is funny because I could have sworn one of my pictures had… well, never mind.) Second, she’s an Australian Kelpie mix (they think), and not a Rottweiler mix. She lost her leg to cancer, but fortunately it didn’t spread, so she’s been happy and healthy for a couple of years now, and is around eight years old.
Plus, she has a blog! How awesome is that? Here: http://dixileta.blogspot.com/
C’mon, Dixie’s Mom & Dad, the latest post on her blog is nearly a month old! Get back to work! 🙂
(Incidentally: not even a single comment on yesterday’s baby seal picture? Hmf!)
Hi Adam – Thanks for posting Dixie on your site! We think she’s an Australian Kelpie mix and about 8 years old. A couple years ago she had a soft-tissue cancer on her elbow – hence the missing leg. She’s an awesome, mellow dog! Check out her little blog: http://dixileta.blogspot.com/
