In what has become a common phenomena, Brutus' cute, extroverted self brings a significant amount of attention my way by virtue of being on the other end of his leash. Whether it is through blogging, obedience training, agility, dog shows, canine fun events - the list of people who I otherwise might not of had the pleasure of meeting if it weren't for the irresistible Brutus keeps growing! And then when they find out that Brutus has his own blog... They might think it's nuts at first, but before they even know what hit them, we have another follower!
We love it when new people start following our blog, especially those who had never even visited a blog before, or thought that a dog could carry such a thing on his own content! Now we have something new to be proud of - all our fun has inspired one of our new friends to start a blog themselves!!
Brutus & I met Courtney through our agility club, Medina Swarm. She competes with her Brittany spaniel Sadie Lou, but shares her home with quite a few other animals as well! She has two labs, what seems like a zillion other Brittanys (there are actually 6, mostly rescue dogs), a few cats, and a herd of 13 miniature donkeys! Sounds like an awful lot of great blogging material to me!!
Some of you might recognize Courtney, as she has made a few cameo appearances on our blog, most recently tending to the dogs in our dog party post from last weekend. Please go pay a visit to her and her menagerie over at her new blog, Kennedy's Funny Farm! They've only got one post under their belt, so I'm sure they'll love a big, warm welcome from the DWB community to inspire them to do more! Stay tuned there for posts not only for Courtney's adventures with her dogs, but also with some totally cute, fuzzy little equines!!
We went out to visit Courtney last weekend, and Brutus got to meet her pack as well as her herd! He felt an odd kinship with the donkeys, their disproportionally big ears and all... So, to give you a taste of some of the members of the Funny Farm, here are some pictures of Brutus meeting his first equines!
Intruder alert! Intruder alert!
Boy, he sure is funny looking! And what's that strange noise he makes? Sounds like he's yelling "yabba, yabba"??
Hmm... He doesn't smell like a donkey, but doesn't look like any dog we've ever seen!
Don't know what you are little guy, but we've decided to be friends with you on the basis of that fantastic set of ears you've got!!
