Thursday 13 Doggy Day






Thirteen Things about My Dog

1. He is a rescue dog. From Dog's Trust

2. He was called Shep but I renamed him King Camembert Cheesy Feet

3. He smells like popcorn!

4. He is very good with children

5. He "thinks out loud" a lot :)

6. He will stand behind the gate to bark even if it's open

7. He never barks on the street

8. He is a registered PAT dog, but is retired now. We used to visit a hospice

9. He has won obedience competitions. And is Kennel Club gold standard but we've only taken the test up to silver

10. He has also done agility

11. He is disabled. One of his back legs is deformed and he can't bend it. He also has a false cruciate ligament in the other back leg

12. He loves to cuddle

13. He is afraid of sheep. He has even been chased across the field by tiny lambs.

Just because he's a dog and I am not really a dog cat, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the fact that you obvious love him very much and he's a lucky dog...

Hey I linked from Kukka's site, and I love the post about your dog. Mine had to be put down a little over a year ago and I miss her dearly. I've been to your lovely country three times so far for touring and Hogmany (Scotlands best kept secret...from the rest of the world) and loved it. I'll visit again soon! Cheers from Michigan!

King Camembert? Why not Brie? I guess Camembert sounds better.

Trish said...

Love people who love their dogs. :) We rescued our boxer from the pound almost 9 years ago.. and he's the best puppy ever.
.. but your dog sounds nice, too. ;P

Happy TT!
