Ever since I saw one in the Shaggy D.A.
Please don't eat the daisies... Actually, anything Doris Day did or wore, I wanted to do and wear. And she was married to David Niven, ah be still my heart. An Old English sheepdog in the movie
and the TV show!!
One of my favorite cartoons.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
But as beautiful as those dogs were in movies and TV shows. I was unprepared for how much character these dogs have....
My first Old English Sheepdog.. He was quite the character. If I cried, he would bark at my husband. Obviously, it was my husband's fault.
They let me dress them for work at Burger King! Dickens was a fabulous dog and is greatly missed.
They let me put hair bows in their hair... even though they have all been boys. Churchill as a puppy.
They always let the kids, lay on them as pillows.
They loved the snow!
And let me dress them in Halloween costumes.
Sat for Christmas pictures.
Found my slippers even as puppies.
Watched me bake!
And fought like little Samari's
All in all, we have had six Old English Sheepdogs in 23 years. They have all been loyal, loving and faithful companions. Each one has followed me all over the house, yard and on errands. In fact I do not remember a time when I have not had a sheepdog by my feet, when folding laundry, typing on the computer or making dinner.
They have always eaten the same dinner without complaining, loved me even when I grumpy and think I am right even though I may not be.
If I am lucky, I will have six more!!!
Sorry honey. Don't mind him, he is not a dog person.
