died today. We got her in December 2002 as puppy from a local rescue called SPOT. We were told that she was a combination of border collie, beagle, lab, german shepherd and rottweiler. We had been looking for a dog. I wanted a lab or shepherd, Tom wanted a beagle and Thomas wanted a rottweiler so this seemed like the perfect solution. She was a cute puppy with huge paws.

She moved to the farm without any problems except she like to kill chickens and she got hit on our busy road when she was about 1 year old. She broke her pelvis and had to have expensive surgery to fix it.

In 2012 she tore her cruciate ligament and needed another expensive surgery.

She also liked just hanging around the farm, following us doing our chores.

Recently she was slowing down, lying around more and walking less. The cedar tree became her favorite place to watch us do the farm chores.

Thankfully we got to take her to the Boles one last time. She loved it up there, hunting chipmunks. I knew something was up when she was peeing without much control and did not want to go on a walk with me and the beagles. Then Sunday morning she suddenly couldn’t stand up. We got her home and helped her around. She could eat and drink but couldn’t stand up and was peeing on herself. So this morning we called the vet out to our house. He agreed that it was the right time to put her down. It was one of the saddest things I have ever had to do. Now she is buried under her favorite cedar tree.
Here are some recent videos of her.
Rest in peace, sweet Mo.
