I was looking out the window of our office when this Jeep drove up with two of the shaggiest creatures I have ever seen. The most common animals to be seen in the back of trucks in Ferndale are of course dogs, but it’s not uncommon to see calves, sheep, and other farm animals either. I was trying to figure out if these whooly beasts were dogs, calves, baby buffaloes (there are buffalo being raised in Ferndale), bears, or maybe I was even a witness to some weird yeti sighting. Finally when this lady came by walking her dog, the two whooly creatures barked at her finely coiffed specimen, probably mocking it’s hairstyle. So I guess they were dogs after all. I’m not sure what breed, but I bet Linda will provide the missing answer.
P.S. As expected Linda was able to identify the dogs in this photo. She sent me this information:
Bouviers are big and big-hearted. They are strong and can think for themselves. The Bouvier is protective. He can sometimes be suspicious of other dogs. While he’s not overly active in the house, he does need plenty of exercise. Country or suburban living suits him well.
So does that mean that with most other breeds, dogs need someone else to do their thinking for them?
