Getting Reacquainted With Snug

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." Unknown Along with my brother Raymond Pert his dog Snug is also spending some time at our house. Snug is an English Springer Spaniel like our dog Annie. They are about four months apart in age. The dogs decided today to get reacquainted. Shelby, our red heeler is asking Snug above why he keeps jumping in the pond full of murky water. Our dogs taught Snug here how to drink out of the fountain when the adults weren't looking. Shelby and Snug were trying to decide whether to chase after the toy one more time. I think at this point this evening Annie and Snug decided if they posed together people may notice they are the same breed. Annie is on the left, Snug on the right. Annie and Shelby aren't used to being around too many other dogs, so they had to readjust to a cousin that likes to play chase, jump in and out of the ponds, and rub his face on the carpet. After catching many photos of the three of them tonight I think we all agree they are readjusting just fine.
If you want to see a beautiful video of Snug the Joiner done by Raymond Pert, go here.

  5. Well if I weren't so behind in reading everyone's blogs, I would have seen this and known he was your brother, lol. I really liked that video he put together from all the photos - it still seems so funny to me, that I didn't realize the two of you were related.

    Fun photos of the dogs romping together - how great that they all get along so well.

  6. Thanks for all the comments as the springer cousins. Raymond Pert did a great video and we were so glad all the dogs go along. Yes, he is my brother. He started his blog last fall,then my sister started the weekly sibling assignment, then my sister and I started blogs. All in the family I guess!!
