Missing from the photo are Red Dog, who can’t get up on that table, and Boomer, who would NOT get up on that table.
What? Who is Boomer you ask?
Boomer is TDBCR’s latest acquisition. He’s about 7 months old and although was advertised as a BC X Lab, looks like a smooth coat Aussie red BC to us. He is one good looking dog. He’s a damn fine cup of coffee! And he is looking for a home.
‘Course, he doesn’t hold a candle to the most sophisticated, always composed, Cooper.
Oh, Cooper. (Cooper is still looking for a home too. I know. We don’t get it either.)
Cooper had an evil twin at the beach today. I mean, I’m sure he wasn’t actually evil and was probably a very nice dog, but he looked like Evil Cooper. I don’t know what’s with the Twin Peaks references in this entry. I apologize.
And speaking of twins … the Doublemints were at it again today:
“Get out of the shot, Ryan!”
So there we were at the beach, with 8 border collies and Abby
And we ran into random guy who is my new hero. He’s my new hero because he didn’t even bat an eyelash at the overwhelming amount of energy we we carting along with. In fact, all he wanted to do was chat about iPhones and didn’t even seem to notice that we had the 9 Dogs Of The Apocalypse with us.
It could be because he was roaming around with these:
In my experience, one hunting dog = 4 border collies with respect to insane energy levels. No wonder he wasn’t phased!
Red Dog is still motoring along. Half his face remains paralyzed, no change on that front, and since the Doggles ™ eating incident, we have agreed he may lurch around unencumbered by tacky sunglasses. In return, he promises not to raid my garbage can anymore. It seemed a fair trade.
But it’s kind of sad-slash-pathetic too, because RD’s bottom lip droops on the paralyzed side of his face. It forms a sort of scoopy “u” shape of extra lip, and it kept filling up with sand. Sometimes I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the bizarre ailments my dogs come down with.
Coookie Uncle showed up with a hangover and a pair of shorts. Fortunately for us all, he was wearing the shorts. But it is the middle of winter, and none of us were sure why he was wearing shorts.
Wootie says “I don’t care if you suffer from Inappropriate Clothing Syndrome, Cookie Uncle. I will worship at the Altar Of Short Pants if it means cookies will rain down upon me.” And so it came to pass.
I suspect even Lars was embarrassed about the short pants. He seemed to hope the earth would just swallow him.
So yeah, Cooper and Boomer are looking for homes of their own. They are two fantastic dogs!
Cooper is about a year old and is a smart, responsive, athletic, sweet and cuddly dog. His turn ons include Vacuum Cleaner Wrestling and cookies.
Boomer is about 7 months old and he likes to party. He says his ideal partner is an agility competitor who likes to have a little fun with tennis balls. He enjoys mud wrestling and acquisitions (of toys).
Tell your friends!
There are no puppy photos this weekend, alas. I did not have the time to make the trek out there to visit my poopsies. Maybe next weekend.
