Darcy thinks the holidays can be “ruff.” She’s my new 8-month-old puppy. I rescued her in June after I had to say goodbye to my best friend Aspen (14-year-old lab mix). Darcy is a bundle of energy — half blue heeler, half German sheperd. Our trainer calls her a miniature German sheperd. I wouldn’t want to be without her. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and joyous Kwanzaa to all!
