This is Bessie, you haven’t seen her before because she’s quite shy.
Baroque enough for you?
Bessie reminds me so much of my parents’ dog…what kind is she? (My parents’ dog is a border collie/black lab mix…which doesn’t seem to me to be the most common mix.)
(Unfortunately, my parents certainly don’t have anywhere near as luxurious of furniture for Bella to lounge on, haha)
She definitely has some border collie in her, but that’s all we know. We got her years ago at a shelter called Adana. While all the other dogs were jumping on us she was in a corner holding back- we liked her restraint and she’s been with us ever since
Your dog lives a better life than I do. Bastard.
They live better than I DO. They take my place on the sofa & on the bed. Any day now I’m expecting them to take the car away from me and the deeds to the house
You dogs at least have taste in furniture. Lady, our English cocker spaniel loves card board boxes, like she’s living under a bridge, and Watson wants an old rag that he’s slept on since he was born. If it was me, I’d toss it out, but the dog goes looking for it when we wash it.
I like the fact that you gave the dog ‘least likely’ a home. Go Bessie!
It was sooooooooo worth it. She’s the most polite, kind, gentle little person you could ever imagine- and Mike was right in that she would have spent her life in the shelter because she was painfully shy… She does have her requirements, though. We have sofas for the dogs in the bedroom and she would pull down a seat cushion and drag it into the corner to be on her own, very Greta Garbo. So we got her her own bed. And she refuses to eat with any other dogs around, so we feed her separately
lmao – she sounds like such a character! My little Mogi was the runt of the litter and even at a very young age she’d learned that the only way she was going to get any food was by perfecting the snatch and grab technique. For most of the first year she wouldn’t eat out of a bowl at all. Then we started feeding her with the cats. That worked but now they are all fed a rather expensive diet of gravy beef.
