National Dog Day 2015

l to r Gael, Nick, Mike (you can see just how much BCs love cameras)

Mike...he had a tennis ball in his mouth here

Brandy, abandoned at the animal hospital where I worked as a kid
His folks didn't want to pay the bill and didn't want him any more
Their loss, my gain today, so this seems like the perfect time to make an announcement that I had been holding off on. 

First of all I have been blessed with some pretty cool dogs over the years. There have been many, sometimes five or more at a time, but the real standouts are above, Mike, Nick, Gael, the three collies, and Brandy, a dog I rescued from impending death at the animal hospital where I once worked.

I had a lot of fun with all of them.

Now we are turning in a little different direction. I used to show Smooth Fox Terriers for a well-known kennel when I was younger. Soon Alan is getting me a Jack Russel Terrier. They are kinda, sorta similar.

This will be a big change from the eager-to-please cooperation of the herding breeds, but I had terriers before obviously, and they are pretty cool dogs too. Not particularly obedient, but smart and entertaining.

I think Daisy knows something's up....she's been real clingy lately.

I've never owned a terrier but my friends have two, a mother and son and they're cool dogs. Can't wait to see the new kid on the block.
