When we adopted Echo from the shelter, they had no idea what breed of dog she was

February 1, 2016

When we adopted Echo from the shelter, they had no idea what breed of dog she was. It's been a fun game all these years for people to guess: a little Wolfhound, Airedale, Shepherd, who knows? A couple years back she was bitten by a copperhead snake in our yard and her face and neck swelled up to a crazy degree. (I have a photo - it's gross.) The vet was worried she might not make it, but Echo is a tough broad and she pulled through. Now, every time we go for a walk and there's a dead snake on the dirt road, she'll see it a long ways away and start slowing her speed and crouching down, regarding it very carefully…
