Favorite Video Friday – Doggie Faces

April 24, 2015 1 comment

I have a fascination with dog faces. I love their cute little noses and long little snouts. I love their soft brown (or blue) eyes and the way they look at you with adoration or curiosity or confusion. I love how some of them have bangs or long, flowing strands of fur that surround their face. I love that some have cute little tufts of hair on their noses. I love their coloring and whorls and speckles. But, mostly I just love them because they are sweet and adorable and overwhelmingly cute.

This week’s video is a deep dive into doggie faces. If you love them as much as I do then this video is for you.  So many dogs with so many different facial shapes, coloring and looks, and every one of them cute as a button.

Happy Friday everyone!

Black and White Sunday #126 – Daisy at the cabin

April 19, 2015 11 comments

This weekend, Daisy and I took a trip up to northern Minnesota to spend some on a lake, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

So far, we’ve been hiking, swimming in the lake (well, she has always), shopping and napping. This is a shot of her soon after we arrived. I think she’s liking lake life.

Daisy really hates being at the cabin.

Favorite Video Friday – One beach + 234 Corgis = Fundorable!

April 16, 2015 2 comments

Last weekend, Minnesota Sheltie Rescue celebrated all things Sheltie at their annual Sheltie Reunion. I saw more Shelties than I could count – blue merles, tris, bi-blacks, sables, chestnut sables, black, white, etc. It was Sheltie heaven for us humans and treat heaven for the Shelties. As it so happens, last weekend was also the annual So Cal Corgi Beach Day.  Imagine 634 Corgis running along a beach in Southern California. Yeah. Beyond cool. Watching this week’s video of the event made me wonder what a Sheltie Beach Day would be like. I suspect there would be lots of herding and barking and chasing one another down the beach. No doubt there would be some wave jumping and water herding (Jasper does this) too. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I’m voting for a Sheltie Beach Day in Minnesota. Anyone got any suggestions on a location where we could make this happen? Let me know! In the meantime… Happy Friday everyone!

Black and White Sunday #125 – The beautiful and unique, Ian

April 11, 2015 16 comments

Saturday was the Minnesota Sheltie Rescue Reunion. I have never seen so many Shelties and humans in one place before!

One Sheltie that I have adored from afar is Ian. He used to be a lot like Foster Maggie – skittish, fearful and very nervous around people. It was quite a pleasant surprise to see him at the event and to see him doing so well. He actually took a few treats from me!

He is such a unique-looking Sheltie. I couldn’t help but snap a picture of him. He’s quite the stunner.

Ian was recently adopted by his foster parents. He came to MN Sheltie Rescue 3 years ago. He was a puppy mill breeding dog. What progress!!! #MNSR #Sheltie
