Our Border Collie puppy, Romeo, asked if he could guest post today. Apparently, you can type without thumbs. You haven’t seen many photos of him here in my little corner of the world, mostly because he’s so fast that he photographs as a black and white blur. I’m going to take the day off while you sit back, relax, and get to know one of our furry kids a little bit better. Take it away, Romeo! ~ Love, Ginger
*Sniff, sniff, woof* Hey, everybody! I’m Romeo, the Border Collie lover boy. I don’t remember much about my early days, but some people found me wandering around an empty racetrack. I guess you could say that I’ve always had the need for speed.
When no one claimed me, the vet’s office where I was staying put out word that I was up for adoption. My new family took one look at my picture and came to rescue me!
I was so happy to finally have a home! My boys taught be how to play this awesome game called fetch. My favorite thing in the whole world is running after a tennis ball! I love to wrestle with my Border Collie sister, Bella. It’s so much fun to be a pesky little brother. When we’re inside, I love being the center of attention. Pet me!
Mom is always getting out a thing called a vacuum. It’s pretty much the scariest thing ever. When I try to herd the vacuum, she sends me to dog jail. I don’t know why she even bothers. After she cleans up all of my black and white fur, I just have to work on shedding all over the house again.
Oh, I pretty much rock at photobombing, too!
I may be a goofball, but I also have a serious side. I fancy myself a renaissance pup. At the end of the day, I love curling up in bed with a good book and smelling Mom’s Earl Grey tea. Fitzgerald and Shakespeare are my favorite, but I enjoy a good Snoopy comic every now and then.
When I get too drowsy to read, I like to curl up next to Mom and Bella for my bedtime pets as I fall asleep. It’s a rough life, but it sure beats being a stray at a race track! Thanks so much for staying to get to know me a little better.
Wishing you peace, kibble, & tennis balls forever,
