Bleu dog was born in January 2005 and happened to be in the pet store when I went in for a pooper scooper. As soon as I picked her up I knew I was in trouble. Unlike many puppies, which allow you to pick them up to the side, Bleu put her paws on my shoulders like a baby. On the drive home she kept close to me, tucking her head under my chin. She was small but stubborn!!
I had no idea that blue heelers were so set in their ways, and I made a lot of mistakes, like teaching her to sleep between my legs - what would be come a lifelong habit. Bleu was a constant in my life until January 2021, when she passed. I miss her quiet presence in the studio.
