Meet Lipton

He is a five-year old Shetland Sheepdog who, as of Friday, will bes our dog. We already know him very well as we have dog-sat him when his owner’s have been on vacation. Now a developed asthma makes it impossible to keep him and we were asked if we could consider taking Lipton in. We have been thinking of getting a dog for some time, so it was very easy to say yes. Lipton is a lovely, well-behaved dog and it will be so much fun to have him. He also gets along well with the cats. Mats love and adore him (he was raised by a dog) and the others treat him with indifference. In Page’s case indifference as long as he keeps away for the cat food. And it will be so beneficial for me to have to walk a dog every day.

To tie it all to the 40’s, here are some nice pictures with dog from the period.

What a beauty! Congrats, you'll enjoy it each and everyday, dogs are just wonderful.

Zany: Thank you! He is a total sweetie.

superheidi: I'm sure I will. I grew up with dogs, but haven't had one since I was a child. Funnily enough my paternal grandmother bred Shetland Sheepdogs, so I'm very familiar with the breed.
