July 31st is a day to celebrate mutts everywhere! Granted, we always celebrate mutts around here, but I figured I’d highlight McKenzie Rae and Khloee since they are both mixed breed dogs. And at the end, I want to hear about your mutts because let’s be honest – I love big mutts and I cannot lie!
Happy Mutt Day!
Khloee was born on June 1, 2014. She was left abandoned at a doggy boarding and daycare facility, and Matt and I rescued her from that fate when she was just three months old. Khloee (aka Khloee Ann Dangles or Poodle) is a Maltese/Poodle mix.
Khloee is very much our fairy princess. If I could use imagery to describe her, I’d use unicorns, rainbows and fields of dandelions. She loves playing with tennis balls but is not a fan of any other type of toy. Khloee’s favorite activities are going on walks and spending time with Matt and I. She’s very much a human dog, as she prefers the company of people to canine companions.
I personally think Khloee is more Poodle than Maltese. Her personality and look just leans more toward the Poodle in her. Those long, dangley legs are irresistible, and that Poodle smile melts my heart.
I saved McKenzie Rae from the euthanasia list at MCACC on November 23, 2015. Rather than being dead on Thanksgiving that year, she spent it in our warm, cozy house. McKenzie Rae, which means “hope for a new beginning” was found as a stray. She was brought to the county shelter and put on the E-list for “fear.” I saved McKenzie’s life 12 hours before she was scheduled to die.
McKenzie Rae is a gorgeous Chihuahua/Labrador/Samoyed mix. Yes, we did a DNA test on her! She’s also made up of a few unknown breeds, but she sure is an amazing dog either way. McKenzie, aka Kenzers, is our most lovable dog. She loves humans and you can just tell that she’s grateful to be alive. Her Lab traits are the most prominent. Kenzers loves to cuddle, she sheds a lot and she has the overall demeanor of a Lab.
Our beautiful McKenzers loves toys, but she doesn’t really like to play with them. She’d rather lay with them or bring them to bed. She also enjoys using toys as props for her bully sticks. Her favorite activities include cuddling with her dad, sunbathing and chewing on bully sticks.
Happy Mutt Day! Tell me about the amazing mutts in your life!
