Cally is a beautiful warm hearted dog who unfortunately doesn't know her own strength. When I was younger she broke free from her pen and knocked me over like I weighed nothing at all and started drooling all over me. It wasn't pleasant. It took me a long time not to fear her after that as she is such a strong dog but now I'm not scared of her anymore. I love playing fetch with her, even if I do throw like a girl. Though Cally doesn't mind. I hate her drooling though. It gets everywhere! Her tail is like a whip and it will bruise you if it hits you. Poor Penny now winces every time Cally's tail is near her for fear of getting whacked!
Deep down Cally reminds me of a horse with her strength and the way she runs. She literally gallops after the ball and will trip over her own feet at times. She also has a sneaky habit of using that strength to push past me to get inside the house. As a puppy, she rarely barked. We literally had to coax her to make any noise at all and when she did it was always very unexpected. Almost as if we had been ignoring her for too long. As she got older she barked more and we ended up wishing for the quiet Cally again. However she won't bark at strangers so she's a shit guard dog. She wears a red collar, howls at ambulance sirens, greets us with a wagging tail and I love her deeply.
