Thanks Kay for admiring the beasties! I have to tell you though, that appearances can be deceiving - angels they are NOT!

Especially Arwen and Brinx, who can get up to no good at a moments notice..... Arwen is particularly known for leading her friends "down the garden path" into trouble with her.

Sandi - I hope you are having a wonderful visit with your daughter!

We have absolutely zero snow here - and I live in the 'snowbelt'. The temperatures have dropped dramatically over the last couple of days from almost being able to wear a light jacket outdoors comfortably, to definitely needing your winter woolies.....

The weather gurus say that we're starting the New Year off with temperatures cooling down even more after midnight tonight to minus 21Celsius (- 5 F) with the wind chill....... BRRRRR

Even with his really thick double coat of fur, poor old Phoenix seems to be really finding it extra cold so far this year. He starts shivering almost as soon as he goes outside, but Arwen and Brinx don't seem to be bothered by it at all.

I'm glad it made their day. Funny how dogs know who needs the TLC. That made me smile. Phoenix is a good boy.
Love the name Arwen. I think I remember the black and white stinky kitty lol.
Puppy Puppy..Glad you re-named him lol..Brinx fits. Sounds like the kids from China didn't do their homework, or not familiar with the breed. Collies are a good sized dog. They should go for a Sheltie. emoticon

First, Jeanne ... The beasties all said they are really excited to be the team mascots, and that yes, you got their names right too. The woofing, tail wagging and big Collie grins have been going on here all day long! You made their Christmas!

I've bred Rough Collies for the better part of about 30 years, but these 3 all came from another breeder friend of ours. I waited almost 10 years to get one of her dogs, just because the timing was never quite right.

My youngest DD Meaganne (who used to be a spark member and on this team too) and I went up to look at puppies from a different litter and of a different colour, but after more 2 1/2 hours of waffling from one pup to the next, we picked our wonderful Phoenix. He is named for the Phoenix " Fawkes" in the Harry Potter stories.

Phoenix was supposed to get me back out in the show ring, but he ended up not being showable or brredable because of all the major head faults that developed while he was still just a baby. He ended up deciding that while I was more or less okay, it iwas Meaganne whom he truly loved, and he's owned her heart and soul ever since.

Phoenix has all kind of health issues himself that started showing when he was about 3 years old, and Meaganne had a spinal injury when she was only 13 that has left her with chronic pain, so the two of the them are kind of a matched set..... He has arthritis in both front legs, as well in both back knee joints. He has Ideopathic Epilepsy which so far, thankfully does not require medication and he always has full-blown Grand Mal seizures which we know are frying his little brain every time. He's had an eye problem, which was also "ideopathic", dental issues, etc. -We call him our "vet clinic Diva" because, like all our dogs, he loves going to the clinic and we're sure he spends his days thinking of new mystery ailments that will earn a trip to the vet! emoticon emoticon .

He has become an unofficial Service Dog for Meaganne, picking up anything when her back or hands are particularly bad, or stretching out against her back, seemingly instinctively knowing just where the pain is the worst and putting his weight right there. He also graciously allows Meaganne to share " his" double bed and bedroom emoticon

Arwen came to us from the same breeder almost a year to the day after Phoenix. She was a replacemnt puppy, because I had paid a large amount to have him as a show / breeding dog. She is named for the beautiful elven princess from The Lord of The Rings tales, and is a truly stunning girl. We co-own her with her breeders, and they have had 2 litters from her, but I never bred her myself.

Arwen goes to great lengths to keep our yard safe from anyone - 2 or 4 legged - that dares to use the sidewalk behind our fence or on the other side of the road..... However, as some of you may already know, Arwen LOVES to play with black and white "kittys" , whether they be real kitties, or the really stinky ones. ( there are several blogs on my page about her love for these critters)

She is an opinionated, yet gentle old girl, who knows that humans are really only good for food, treats, or car rides, and that most tricks are only for the dumb boys to do so that she can just look pretty and still get the same treat as them......

Then there's Brinx... He came to us by accident, from the same breeder. He had been sold to a couple of kids from China who were in Canada attending the University in town, and who needed to board him for a couple of weeks while they home for a visit. He was here for almost 4 months before they came back to Canada, and at that point they simply were not able to cope with the much larger puppy than he had been when they left him with me. The breeders were content to leave him in my hands to breed, show, neuter, place or whatever. We looked around for a perfect family for him, but since he will be 7 years old in a couple of months, I guess he's here to stay.

He came with the name "Puppy-Puppy", because that's what the Chinese kids said his breeders called him ..... did I forget to mention that these kids had almost zero English skills, despite having attended University in Canada for nearly 4 years? So, he remained puppy-puppy until he was ours. Our rather macabre joke all summer had been that he had pushed our sweet, gentle old Maggie over the brink, and killed her... and that he was trying to push everyone else in the house over that same brink..... So Brinx he became, and to this day he knows his name is Brinxie good boy, and does not understand when it is Brinxie bad boy. He is just as smart as Arwen - who is actually his aunt - and has a tail that never stops wagging.

All 3 of the beasties are multi-titled, some of which are official C.K.C (Canadian Kennel Club) titles, as well as some unofficial ones too. They are all titled in Obedience, and Rally, are Therapy and Pet Visitation Dogs certified, have done some Herding, participated in numerous demonstrations for school kids, Scouting and Girl Guide groups, seniors centers, etc. They are all neutered or spayed as I am no longer breeding anymore. Phoenix is officially retired, although Meaganne would love to take him out one more time if one of our favourite judges is at a nearby show.

Phoenix was 10 on November 17th, Arwen turned 9 on December 6th and Brinx will be 7 on February 22nd. There are lots of pictures of each of them in my photo gallery if you are interested in seeing them out of Christmas costumes.

Thanks again for giving this honour to our Phoneix, Arwen and Brinx!

I had no idea that they were related. Thanks for the link Jeanne! I loved him in Miracle on 34th Street, and also as the angel in Carousel - another of my favourites.

That would have been very cool meeting Jon Provost!

The Collie Club of America (CC of A) held it's Nationals in Niagara Falls, New York some years ago, and a bunch of us went over to watch. The actress who played Timmy's Mom - can't think of her name at the moment - was there. She seemed rather frail, but was there almost the whole day long, signing books and other Lassie memorabilia, as well as just chatting with people. She was absolutely delightful!

To make the day even better for us - a number of Canadian Collies placed first in their respective classes!

Phoenix and Arwen both said Thanks for the Birthday wishes and sent a bunch of big woofs, tail wags and lots of sloppy, wet Collie "licike - lickies" too.

A belated Happy, Happy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATRICK!

Our 2 oldies have also just had birthdays - Phoenix turned a whopping 10 years old about 2 weeks ago, while Arwen is a whole year younger - 9 this past Saturday. Once we finally finish getting all the Christmas decorations up, we're planning to have a little cake and "party" for the 2 of them.

Jackie, I run into the same problem all the time - EVERYONE in the whole world seems to have had a Collie in their lives as a child. One of my favourite Disney shows (made for TV movie) as a kid was called "Big Red" and was about a beautiful Irish Setter. I've loved them ever since.

I can see Patrick's smile. Sarge's Christmas present is going to be a squeaker toy. He just started playing with them this year. Better late then never I guess lol.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

Jackie, that is the way Zoey is too. She doesn't care for many other dogs, just a few of her choosing but loves people and thinks everyone she meets wants to be her friend!!!!

Happy Birthday to your sweet Patrick! emoticon

My goodness!! So surprised. Patties Birthday today, such a nice present for him. I have had many pets now, (getting up there lo) Loved all of them.
Always loved Setters. Patty is my third one. He is a sweetie, he is with me all the time, great garden buddy. He is afraid of many things especially loud noises.
Understands more words than any dog I have ever had. Does not like other dogs, but will visit every person he sees, they will pet and greet him like he is an old friend, many people tell us they had a Setter when they were young. Wish I saw more of them, but ours is the only one we see. Really is a great dog, fun and happy spirit.
Patty and I thank you ((HUGS)) Jackie
Thank you Goozlebear and Kathyscollies, so nice of you,

Oh, wow. Thank you for honoring Blue. He was the youngest of Annie's puppies, the one who didn't really look like a purebred, but he was one of my sweet boys. Blue was 15 when I lost him because of a horrible disease, Masticular Muscle Myositis (not sure that last word). But he fought that disease for a few years and was a brave boy. I feel honored that you have chosen Blue for the Dog Lovers Mascot.

I never heard of that color, either. Where I used to board my horse they breed silver and charcoal labs. Not an accepted color for show, but they are interested in hunting more. That and making money. I think they breed too much. They don't use crates for their dogs and always interact with them, though.

Our Alice was like that, she is part Lab. We bought a Bloodhound Pup years ago, and you know hounds. Nose into everything all the time lol. One day he was into everything. I looked at Henley, and mumbled out loud about just telling him no...Alice jumped up, grabbed a toy, and took it to Henley to keep him busy for a while. I had to laugh.

Thanks Sandi. He is so cute all the time it's hard to think of things on the spot, but one thing he does that's adorable is he likes to teach puppies (and the less civilized! LOL) how to behave. We puppy-sat last year, so Charlie was only 4-5 months old, but he knew to sit when being fed or watered, and to wait before charging out the door. He told the older dog in no uncertain terms that his jumping would NOT be tolerated! He smacked his little butt down on the floor and looked at him as if to say "DUDE!! SIT or we WONT GET FED!! You Can't DO that here!!" He also made him sit and wait at the door! He also demonstrates commands PERFECTLY for puppy friends, even though he looks at ME like I am crazy trying to practice with him at home alone. I guess it is beneath him now! emoticon But he Loves to teach! He looks at them as if he is saying "Look, little buddy, they want THIS when they say that and then you get a cookie!!"

Cindy, that is such a cute story about your precious Lab. I've never heard of that color either. My Honeybear that went to the Rainbow Bridge at age 14 was a yellow lab and just the love of my life!!!

Feel free to share stories about him!!!

Eileen, I agree! Our animals find US and CALL to US to come get them. He was the same way, really. I had the choice of about 20 local breeders for labs and Golden's that sounded great, home-based, reputable. I was DRAWN to this one, even though it was farther away and I never spoke to anyone from any of them so it was not personality. I just KNEW I would find him there, and I did. I was also looking for a girl! LOL But when you know they are yours, it's done!

Kathy, I never knew either until we realized as he grew up that he was different. Someone said he looked red so I Googled "Red Lab" and found a lot of information and pictures. Then I Googled "Fox Red Lab Images" and found MANY that look exactly like him! The brown nose and eyelids are another unique thing that I think disqualifies him from shows, but I think his white patches do anyway. Not that I was concerned about any of that AKC stuff anyway. We haven't even registered him because who cares?? He is our baby, end of story!

Cindy, he is very handsome fellow! I had never heard of this colour in a Lab before - only the yellow, black, and chocolate ones. I do love Charlie's colour!

Thanks for telling us all about him.

He is a handsome "dude" Cindy. Thanks for sharing your story on how he picked you. I think we get chosen by our dogs:)

Hi, and thanks for picking Charlie! I got him from a local breeder, he is a purebred lab, Fox Red. We thought he was just a yellow when we got him, and picked him for temperament more than looks. He was calmer, yet interested and very cuddly. I would have gotten a rescue but wasn't able to. He is the best dog, has a great temperament and does the cutest things every day! He loves dogs, people, kitties, children...anyone who will give him some love! He is creative at not getting into trouble, yet getting what he wants. For example he knows it's bad to jump on people or the door, so he hops straight up but doesn't put his paws on them! He will take a sock or something he isn't supposed to have, and hide it way back in his mouth behind a toy! emoticon He's just a great dog, thanks for picking him!

Daisy is lucky that you came along with your gift of love , care and wonderful attention to show her what 'the good life' is all about!

It's amazing how much love can change things for the better isn't it! Too bad more humans don't understand that you can move mountains with even just a little kindness shown toward others!!!

I'm glad that you and Daisy found each other to love!

Hi all!! This is Daisy's (a Registered Chihuahua) mom. We took her out of a home at the age of 13 months. The people we moving out of the country and didn't "get her paperwork done". We found out that she had never been outdoors and had never been socialized. We couldn't touch her but for some reason we knew we needed to take her out of that environment so they had to put her in the kennel for us to take her and did give us the kennel. We got her into our house and opened the kennel door. She ran and hid. We were going to give her time to adapt. Our son came over with his Chi. and Snickers hadn't been to our house since Angel, my profile picture, had died. So he went looking for her, found Daisy, scared her to death and she flew into my lap!! The picture you see is that very night after she settled down and would sit by my feet. We worked with her and soon had her loving the outdoors and adoring people! She is a great camper too!! Loves the travel, riding in the truck, car or the golf cart! She is younger than our other one but acts like a mother to her. Daisy has 14" long legs and boy does she have a great jumping range! Smart dog and learns rapidly.

That is our Daisy Dandy Lion!! Thanks so much for featuring her!! She is special!!

Add me to the "ME TOO" list please!

It's always so interesting to see everyone's beasties, maybe learn about why they got their names, or how the came to the household etc.
