one year ago today i brought this gentle yet sassy border collie puppy home.
when i announced i was getting a border collie puppy everyone’s first reaction was…., “how do you think cody bear will handle it?”
he handled it o.k. actually. but she was just terrified of him initially. here she hides from him while he runs hell-on-paws around the yard…
she didn’t know what to make of this fast moving, furry bear.
within weeks she grew confident. she took his toys….she took his chewies…
cody bear was patient…and frustrated.
but mostly, he was afraid to stand up for himself against her. he somehow sensed i would be mad. so he tried to be gentle. tried not scare the puppy.
they learned to share.
one year later…
they’re inseperable. they get eachother goin’.
they’re bff…they’re family.
they play hard. they’re complete opposites.
cody bear and i talked about it. it’s been a year.
we both agree: we love her. she smells bad, she’s constantly dirty, she’s kind of selfish, her nose is always in the wrong place….but…we both love her…and we’re going to keep her.
ha ha! like you would believe me if i told you i would toss her back!?
happy anniversary pickles. you’re our girl.
