SWEET DOG VISITOR


This is a neighbor's dog.  He periodically comes to visit us and when he does, he is usually glued to my side and follows me EVERYWHERE on the property.  If I get out of sight, he gets worried and comes looking for me.  Usually he's just walking beside me, almost like a guide dog.  If I stop, he stops and waits.  

He's a sweetheart.  His name is Rebel.  


I took his picture and when the shutter clicked, he did the little head turn to the side dogs do that is so freakin' adorable.


I told him I'd put him on the blog and he'd get comments from around the world, but he seemed unimpressed.  
 
"Yeah, yeah, I know I'm cute..."

Rebel may be training you. Watch out! Dogs are addictive. You will discover you can talk to him with ease and when he is absent, you will be wanting one of your own.

He's a lovely baby.......we visit with the paper girls pup now....another sweetheart.

He's beautiful. I would be lost without our dog, great companion, great rat catcher, great snake alert, great watch dog, I could go on and on. Something for the farm when you're out there permanently!

I do love me a Shepherd. I learned to walk pulling myself up on the tail of ours. And also teethed on his very patient ears.

That dog is freaking gorgeous. I want him! HA! Yes, as everyone has said, you will get dog fever once you are out there full time. Jenna

Belinda said...

Wow, you are lucky, he looks like a sweetheart of a dog.

Hey, right now you kind of have it like grandparents do, you get to play with him and have him around and then send him home at the end of the day, haha.

Enjoy your puppy time!

1st Man,

Rebel is training you really well :-)
What a precious dog, he looks like Shepard or Shepard mix.

Love the dog and his name, Rebel, which he is not. He is just a happy character jumping out of the pictures. Does he fetch too?? Have a good weekend. M

1st Man said...

I can so understand that. I was out there this weekend and he wasn't around and I looked for him. ;-( We'll have dogs for sure when we get out there full time.

1st Man said...

Very good dog. :-)

1st Man said...

Isn't he? Just a happy dog.

1st Man said...

Ha, he is over visiting more often lately (except last weekend, I missed him).

1st Man said...

Yes, he does that stop and close the mouth and ears up look to see if someone drives past the road. Five seconds later he's panting and happy, but definitely vigilant. Even on our property which isn't really his, ha.

1st Man said...

That's what I thought the first time I saw him, he was a very happy dog for sure.

1st Man said...

I will pass that along to him. Thanks!!!

1st Man said...

I really was talking to him and taking pics and he went from looking up at me to just turned his head to the side, not even looking at anything in particular, ha

1st Man said...

Aw, that's cool. It's nice getting to visit with other dogs and get the love and attention. ;-)

1st Man said...

We will DEFINITELY have a dog when we are out there full time. They are so necessary aren't they?

1st Man said...

I hope he will appreciate that, ha. Thanks!!

1st Man said...

Resistance is futile???

1st Man said...

Awww, that's a sweet memory, thanks for sharing that!!!

1st Man said...

He is pretty for sure. And yes, I can see us getting dog fever one of these days, ha. .

1st Man said...

Love that analogy, ha Borrowing all the fun and happy times and then he goes back home to eat, ha. Definitely enjoyed the puppy time, thanks!!

1st Man said...

I am afraid you are correct. I think he's a mix but definitely a lot of shepherd in there somewhere.

1st Man said...

I thought that was a great name too. Might have to remember that for 'someday', ha. I didn't try 'fetch' but you can bet I will next time!!! :-)

Thanks!!
