I haven't seen Carousel for years. I didn't know he was in that movie.

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.

Jeanne,that's who I was thinking it was, but I thought I was wrong.

If I go with my first instincts, I'm more often correct, it's when I second guess myself that I really goof up... emoticon

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.

Thank you Kathy for the birthday wishes. I see you had 2 Birthdays too. Birthday wishes to Phoenix and Arwen. emoticon
I too loved Big Red, love the end when he has all the puppies in the pack, than they all run up to the the house emoticon
Always loved Collies too, my favorite show growing up was Lassie. Always wanted one. Found a picture years ago that showed, my family did have one, but long before I was born, she was a beauty. So are yours. Have a fun birthday party. emoticon

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.

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

Darlene, how nice that Blue is the new team mascot! He sounds very much like my Lucky - a fellow who had some serious health issues right from the get go, but had a full life in spite of them.

HOORAY for Blue!!!

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 it either until we got Charlie and realized he was different. We want a silver lab next they are so cool looking and why not have 2 of the rare variations?

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.

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!!

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.
