Sookie loves to be outside no matter the weather.
Sookie is our 2-year-old blue merle Aussie. She loves to run, sing (aka howl), run, high-five, eat peanut butter, and run some more! Sookie has one very light blue eye, and one eye that is half brown and half blue. She loves her grumpy big sister, Dixie (13-year-old boxer), and doesn't know a stranger. She's especially excited about the six new baby chicks that we are raising this spring, and is learning the art of gentleness. :)
In December 2012, Sookie had a run-in with a giant delivery truck that left her nursing two broken hind legs. For weeks, we served as her back legs - looping a towel under her belly to support her while she "wheelbarrowed" outside with two full-leg splints. Within three short months, Sookie is back to her sweet, cheerful self and is quickly regaining her fitness too.
