Heavy Hooksetter posted a wonderful thread recently about our best friends who have passed.  So to start the new year I thought why not post pics and/or stories about our best friends who are with us now.

 

Duncan and Daisy are retired Shetland Sheepdog show dogs who both have won local titles.  Duncan got a little too big to qualify as he aged and Daisy’s fur was just not full enough to win as she got older.  Both are sweet lively dogs that love the beach and people!

Beautiful dogs, Birdnester. I had a sheltie growing up, is name was Dusty. Wish I had a pic, most of our photos were destroyed in a flood. Now I've got a 13 year old lab, Blazer, and a border collie mix, Daffodil. Daffy is a couple years younger than Blazer.

he's a rescue mutt.  we had him dna tested and they couldn't figure him out.  they labeled him a "mega mutt" and gave us our money back!

Very good idea starting this thread birdnester, I'm sure we'll see some very fine animals in this one as these two right here

BTW, that's a fine clown that dog has got!

Fine looking animal right there and judging by his gaze at that current I think he sees a pod of Bunker piled up.

This is Josie.  She turned 4 in October.

The pic with my wife holding her on leash was taken by The Dogist.  Josie is semi-famous hahaha.

 

The Dogist was created in 2013 by Elias Weiss Friedman, whose goal was to create a happy place on the internet for dog lovers. After being let go from his job, he took inspiration from The Sartorialist and Humans of New York and set out to the streets of New York with a camera and a squeaky tennis ball. Elias has since photographed over 30,000 dogs across the world, authored a NYT Bestselling book, and gathered an audience of over 3.7 million people on social platforms.

That is really neat.  If you fish as well as you paint that would be impressive! Great stuff!!!
