My apologies for the extended absence. Welcome to my new blog:
Almost Healthy Life with a Side of Puppy
More on Mauka because I'm a new mommy and new mommies are allowed to gush:
1. Mauka is a Mini (Blue Merle) American Shepherd. Most people still refer to the breed as Mini-Australian Shepherd but they are, in fact, their own little breed now.
2. Mauka is pronounced mau-kuh (mau rhymes with pow). The word mauka is Hawaiian for "towards the mountain."
3. Why the name Mauka? Our late great dog, Sierra. She was a Black Lab/Blue Heeler mix and the word sierra means "mountain range" in Spanish.
Mountain range .................... towards the mountain. You get the idea.
