What dogs we are, deep thoughts by a 7 year old
My 7 year old is a Border Collie, smart & a kind of sleeper breed, one that surprised everyone with its intelligence. My son is so busy thinking and doing, he can appear spacy-but there's a lot going on in there.
The Creature is a Jack Russell. Like all terriers he has a huge presence and absolutely no clue that he is little. Tenacious and obnoxious at times.
The Baby is an adorable baby bulldog, squishy, chubby, but built big & solid. Very mellow.
My darling spouse is a Presa Canario, as seen on a breeder's page: noble and kind with family, distrustful of strangers. Nice, but fierce.
I'm a Bernese Mountain Dog and here's the breed temperament: "is self-confident, alert and good-natured, never sharp or shy. The Bernese Mountain Dog should stand steady, though may remain aloof to the attentions of strangers. " I wish, but the main thing is they have a long torso & short legs, like me, ha ha.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
