The Circle of Life
« on: January 15, 2019, 07:22:10 PM »
My wife has been really down.  Her parents both died in the last 18 months and her favorite pet, Zippo, died.

Today I picked up Zippo's ashes in a lovely wooden box.

Today my wife came back with her new 8 week old Shetland Sheepdog puppy.  He weighs 4 pounds.

Congrats on the new mouth to feed. And sorry about Zippo. Now all you need is sheep for the new puppy to herd.  ;D

He looks like a real winner. I would start out stern and in about 10 min. he'd have making 'baby-talk' words to him. After that I would probably sit on the floor while he slept in my chair. You gotta draw the line somewhere.

I grew up with Shelties and showed them in my days in 4-H. They are beautiful dogs if a little temperamental.

Looks like a great pup, Airboy.

My condolences for your  wife's parents.  That can't be easy losing both in such a short time.

Beautiful dog.  My family had a Shetland on our ranch when growing up.  They're wonderful animals.

Dash is now 8lbs - he has doubled in weight over the last 60 days.

I have additional pictures at: https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/14/dash-feb-28-2019/

When awake he is in constant motion and I shot about 20 pictures go get 4 unblurred shots.

Sounds like he's got the right name if he's that hard to get a shot of. Lovely dog!
