Happy Birthday, Deacon!


This was our first glimpse of 'Eddie', that was his litter name.  He was eight weeks old and living on the farm where he was born.  Don't ask me how or why but nobody had shown an interest in taking him home.  I can only imagine he was waiting for us. 

He's three years old today and despite driving us crazy with acts of random silliness and boisterous behaviour, we love him to bits.

A la Country Living, Readers' Pets, here is a little expose.

Loves - Balls, any kind but if they squeak all the better.

Hates - The vet's office, having a bath and being brushed.

Naughtiest Habits - Being rude to small dogs, stealing teatowels and flatulent in the company of others.

Favourite Food - Cheese!

Dreams of - Drives in the car to Lowville Park for a swim and seeing Shannon, his Labrador lady friend. 

This is one boy who won't be sleeping in on his special day!

    My grandad was a shepherd and had this breed of sheepdog as working dogs.

  4. Ah! Who couldn't love that? I love the way you say about him not liking a bath but dreams of going for a swim. Thats just like my Tommy, I wonder why they don't understand its all the same thing but with or without shampoo?!!

  5. Cornflower, We ask ourselves that all the time...he looked like a toy stuffed animal he was so cute!

    JoAnn, He's plunked down beside me right now, tired out from a game of 'catch'. The first of many today I'm sure!

    DizzyC, A wonderful partnership to see in action. These dogs love nothing more than to have a task don't they.

    Rob, HaHa! Very true! And if you blow in their face they'll snap at you but love to stick their face out the car window!

  8. What a sweet little boy he was (and is!). Aren't you glad no one else snapped him up first?!
