Dalton Terrier CheyAnna, My Best Friend
CheyAnna has a great look about her, very smooth lines, and a BIG personality. That tail just never stops wagging. In fact, she has had a small "knot" near the end of her tail since she was about eight months old. We think she just hit it too hard on something.
A Dalton Terrier is a mix between a Dalmatian and a Boston Terrier. "Plus a little of something else," according to the breeder. The exact mix seems to be a big secret, I guess, so we don't try to breed our own Daltons.
CheyAnna is like a three-year-old child who always comes running to greet us like she hasn't seen us in a week, even after fifteen minutes of being outside in the yard. She also loves to retrieve a ball, but will only drop it at your feet if you ignore her. She seems to think that all the running should be rewarded everytime, with a treat or the ball itself.
She is a big chewer, and can destroy any ball or toy. Even the huge Nylabones, which are advertised as indestructible, end up as just a two-inch stump after a few months. She is now on her third big Nylabone.
