Let me introduce Winston - my cousin...well, I guess he's not really my cousin - but he's my dad's brother's dog & they live nearby...so Winston comes over to play alot...& sometimes even spends the night. We all think he is a cross between Whippit, Border Collie & maybe Lab...but don't get me wrong - he is 100% pest!~ He'll be two in October, weighs about 40 pounds & can run like the wind. I try to chase him & nip at his heals, but I never get that close. He's a pretty good dog & knows that I am the boss...or so I tell him every chance I get.
Love & Licks,
I have a love/hate relationship with Winston. I love that he listens to me & that he knows I'm supposed to go in & out of rooms first & that I get served treats first & first that I get dibs at bones...I don't like to admit the fact that he is awfully cute & loves to cuddle as well - so I guess he can't be all that bad. He does keep me company & lets me chase him so I can get some much needed interval cardio training in the backyard.
In the pictures above, you see Dublin in the middle, me on the right & Winston as a little pip-squeek puppy on the left - I think he was only about 3 months old in that picture. You can see he has the same markings...white paws & a white chest. (Do you see the markings/indentations of a white cross on Dublin's chest? I think he was specially blessed & chosen & that's why he went to the Bridge earlier than we all wanted him to...) Winston looks like he could be related...even if he was, I'd disown him anyway.... The pic where I'm laying on his legs was an absolute set up...I think he was afraid to move - do you see the terror in he eyes? He knows that he is under my complete supervision!
All in all, he's a good little doggie...just never tell him I said that, OK!
Love & Licks,
