This is Miss Dixie's first picture as a Thomas in 2004 taken at her foster home right before bringing her home.
Dixie came to us as a blonde and grew a coat of long flowing blonde hair.
It wasn't long before we figured out that long hair and leaves/forest debris were not going to work well together.
Dixie has always been a Mama's girl - staying close enough to see or touch but does not like to be held or hugged (Makes many mean faces).
Over the years she gradually became a beautiful brunette
Here she is as she looks in 2016. Still the matriarch of the puppies.
