We’re not entirely sure what Juliet is, breed-wise. We know her mom was lab and part hound, but the dad is a mystery. She is certainly an odd pup, being overly suspicious of just about everything. While Bella will head right to people at the dog park, Juliet will veer away from them at the last second to avoid their petting. She’ll also play with other dogs as long as they don’t try to chase her. She doesn’t like to be separated from the family or Bella and will have frantic whiny howly fits when she is. During the evenings, there is a lot of time spent with Juliet just staring at me, her feather duster of a tag wagging. Or at bedtime, she plays a game where she dives head first under the blanket, her read end hanging out. All I have to say is “I can still see you” and she get all worked up. Once, I made the mistake of getting the dogs new toys and new treats at the same time. Juliet got so excited that she threw up, like a toddler who ate too much candy. Despite her oddities, she is a very loving and sweet dog.
I snapped this photo while Juliet was watching the dog show on Thanksgiving. She watched the entire segment on the hounds then went back to chewing on her bee when it was over. She cracks me up.
