Thread Name: Dog stories....
Subject: RE: Dog stories....
Tess is a blonde collie cross who was found at 12 weeks in a garage pit by Jim, my husband. She was covered in fleas, had worms and parovirus. She's nearly 10 now, anticipates every move, like Kat's collie, communicates remarkably well, and can laugh all over her face when she wants to. She is friendly with our three cats, only chasing them when they are daft enough to move fast. and hates all the other cats with the temerity to walk across our garden.
Benson is a retriever cross, who was aquired to keep Tess company when we went to work. Tess has played mind games with him since he was 6 weeks old, and he appears thoroughly cowed by her. But if there is a bone or toy that he wants, that she is being posessive about, he will whine urgently at the door until we let them out, then double back and grab the prize. Who says dogs can't plan ahead.
He is able to seek out and dispose of any crumb of food in the house before it hits the floor, thus my E-Mail name of crumbhound.
I love my dogs!!!! Hwyl, Bron.
