.The Patagonian Cavy

The Patagonian cavy is the third largest rodent in the world. Its hind legs are slightly bigger then the front. The Patagonian cavy has a grayish brown coat. The cavy's hair is very fine and soft. The Patagonian cavy's feet have three toes in the front, and two toes in the back. The Patagonian cavy prefers grasslands with space. The Patagonian cavy walks normal on all four feet, and can hop like a rabbit. If they get scared they can jump six feet in the air, and run up to thirty five miles per hour. The cavys travel in pairs. The male will be behind the female so other predators, or other cavys wont mess with her. The Patagonian cavy breeds two, or three times in one year. The cavys can have two or three babies in one litter. Cavys put all the new born babies in one den, and all the mothers take turns loving on their babies. Cavys find their babies by smell and will run off the other babies.

The Blue Heeler

My dog Molly is a blue heeler. The blue heeler is a dog that is not afraid to protect its owner. Blue heeler, or also known as, Australian cattle dog, has a scissor-like bite. The blue heeler has a stocky body, and the tail is long with a slight curve. Black markings on a blue heeler are more than likely not fit for a dog show, depending on the people running it. Heeler puppies, when born, will be solid white due to crossing the dalmatian with other breeds to make the blue heeler.

The blue heeler is very active, and can sometimes be very aggressive if another dog or suspicious person is around. They need extreme exercise, or behavior problems will start. Blue heeler puppies should be socialized as soon as possible or they will start being aggressive with everybody. If not trained, they might start trying to herd the kids.
