Miss Cleo - Our Whipped-up Mix
by Jill Jones Jacobs
Miss Cleo just showed up at our doorstep about seven years ago.
We were not ready for another dog but were blessed with the best dang dog we have ever owned.
People have asked "What is she?" I always jokingly said she was an African Python Herder.... Ha Ha!
She is a snake killing machine. She also loves to hunt lizards, gophers, moles, rabbits, locust & wasps.
The vet said she looked as though to have a little Black Mouth Kerr in those veins.
She has been clocked running 37 miles an hour. She weighs about 45 pounds. People always ask if we feed her.... Duh!
She is just a thin dog by nature - around the ribs but all muscle everywhere else.
She is a loving dog that greets all who pull in the driveway. So guard dog from other humans is not her forte. But she does guard us from the coyotes and keeps the squirrels in the trees.
Who could ask for anything more? The picture I am showing is Miss Cleo with our Scottish Terrier Texie Belle.
The reason I am at this site posting a picture of her is because I saw a video of a Pippet?
Playing with a huge ball in a back yard... Maybe on You Tube. Her mannerisms were very similar to the dog on the video.
Just wondered if anyone might take a peep and tell me what they see in her.
