Subject: Dublin update
Greetings! Hope all is well at the farm. Just wanted to send you an update
on our wonderful Dublin (Nigel & Marsha, born 2/22/07). Dublin is
almost 21 months now and is doing great! He has had a companion
since March of this year. She is a wonderful Great Pyrenees named
Bailey. The two are inseparable and about as compatible as can be.
Bailey is double jointed
which really comes in handy while wrestling with the "big fella."
Dublin goes out front and gets the paper every morning and is proud as a
peacock! This weekend we traveled for our son's college football
game and our neighbor watched "the kids." Dublin got the paper
Sunday morning and refused to give it to him. He stashed it by the
fireplace still in its plastic wrap. He waited until we returned
Sunday, ran to get get "his" paper and proudly displayed his
achievement to us (even though we see him do it every day). We could
not have asked for a more loving and wonderful character.
He's quite the boy. The Pyrenees will try to take the paper from him
when he comes in,
but he will not let anything get in his way of showing Claudia that
he got the paper. If she is still sleeping, he will sit by our
bedroom door until I open it, just so he can run in to show her.
Then, and only then, will he willingly give it up so I can actually
read it (as you can imagine, if it is not wrapped in plastic, I
sometimes miss a story or two on the front page!)
I have included a few photos so that you can see how wonderful he is.
Thanks again for your dedication to this wonderful breed.
Dan & Claudia
