Dogs are fun
How well do you know your dog/s?
This is our Story
Follow us, as we let you know a bit about what we are getting upto daily. Dog Diaries is our story of our lives, the fun we have, the good and bad times, its all about us Scooby, Shaggy and Scappy.
These are my dogs (see pictures), Scooby who is 12 years old our ‘old age pensioner‘, Shaggy is nearly 6 years old ‘our adult‘ and the latest addition, Scrappy our ‘puppy‘ who is nearly one year old. Our aim in getting Scrappy was so that she can learn as she grows up from our two older dogs. Scooby is a cross border collie – spaniel and according to Shaggy’s records he is a short haired border collie, Scrappy is a pure breed border collie. All three dogs have very different personalities. They do not like strangers coming into the house. They will bark until they are used to you and if they are comfortable around you, they will come and sit by you. They tend to be around us all the time.
Scrappy and Shaggy both get on well together and play. Scooby is not so keen on Scrappy, if Scrappy comes near her she will growl or even get up and move.
At night the dogs are left to wander and settle where they are comfortable. Shaggy chooses to sleep in our room on his own blanket. He is the only one with a blanket, he likes comfort. Scooby goes between the kids rooms and Scrappy does the same but also sleeps in our room. When she wakes at dawn, she quickly goes and wakes up Scooby.
They are fed in order of seniority, in other words Scooby’s bowl goes down first. They sit and wait for their food
They each have their own places to eat, but sometimes steal if they can get away with it from each others bowls. We watch them and they know this. They all love treats and dog biscuits (Pooch and Mutt Fresh Breath Treats).
Where we are is where the dogs are. I work in my office during the day and the dogs are never far from us, normally one in front of my chair, and one each side of my chair. I can’t move my chair for dogs, and its even more difficult if there are two of us in the office, then we battle for space between the dogs and they don’t want to move. They like to sit in front of the office window watching the world go by, often a bird will land on the tree or ground or a lizard might wander past. They can just see down the street, so any movement and they are there ready, watching and waiting.
Scrappy is our blue eyed girl, she has one brown eye and one blue eye, (this is part of border collie features). The coats on all three dogs are very different, Shaggy’s coat is quite course,
Scrappy is soft and cuddly, Scooby’s coat is long and prone to tangle and knot. She visits the Parlour every now and again. Scrappy likes to watch TV and often goes right up to the screen and puts her nose there. Scrappy is able to occupy herself by playing with a big leather ball, she plays and runs around with it, having fun.
