Dusty's mom says: Dusty is a Shetland sheepdog (sheltie) who we think is the cutest dog alive. She is as sweet and loving as she can be and has gotten sweeter the older she gets, and she is now 12. Dusty loves to frolic in the snow. In any weather, she loves to walk in the park or just sit and watch the ducks, birds, squirrels, and other dogs. Sometimes she is so relaxed she takes a nap standing up! Even though she is good-natured, she definitely rules the roost. She herds everyone in the family and will not allow any rambunctious behavior. She especially loves to herd her brother cat, Salty, chasing him down to the family room where he sleeps when she decides it is time for him to go to bed. She is a funny little girl, a wonderful companion, and we love her!
