Dog Memories


Our dog’s species was “Old English Sheep Dog” / Bobtail
 – we’ll never forget him, Sarah was his name – 
we had so many funny experiences with him 
running through snow pulling sledges, 
swimming in the North Sea, salty water bad for hairs,
finding the right path in a pathless forest, 
running through a wedding in a chapel, 
dividing tough the fresh couple
stealing our neighbour’s hat or slippers, 
stealing the ball from a soccers’ field 
during an important match 
– we had often some big trouble – 
but back home we always had to laugh!

  2. Amazing “Dog-Throne”!


  3. Such endearingly funny memories you have shared here with us, Frizz, about your wonderful sheepdog Sarah! I can just picture him stealing that soccer ball! These canine family members are just irreplaceable, are they not?


  4. Trompie thinks he was a handsome fellow!


  5. Old English Sheepdogs are wonderful dogs, very intelligent. He is a beauty!


  6. “From up here I can keep both eyes on my flock!” (Sarah seems to say)


  7. hahaha…very amusing (also, this is the first time I have seen the name Sarah used for a male)! And for me…shoes chewed to pieces and sleepless nights (puppy constantly barking and getting used to a new home), but every day, he walked me to the end of a lengthy driveway to catch the school bus in the morning, and enthusiastically met me at the same place in the afternoon when the school bus brought me home. Such a great dog!
    Do you know the story of Hachiko the dog? A true story about a dog’s amazing loyalty to his master. It occurred in Tokyo. There is a statue outside Shibuya Station in Tokyo, but I have not been to Tokyo yet. I saw the recent movie based on the true story. Although the setting for the movie is in the US, I could watch it over and over again.ō's_Tale
