Buttons is our very old, 14 years in a week, dog. Every cat LOVES her! I really don't think she's that trilled with being a cat magnet but we find it amusing. I snapped this picture one night. The 2 cats with her are outside barn cats in to warm up in our very sub zero temps.
Buttons mother was a registered collie, dad was a registered golden retriever, yes she is black and that is strange but for some reason that is the color they are! Anyway, that makes her a mutt I guess...or a designer dog, a COLTRIEVER! LOL She has been a very good dog and we know our time with her is limited. Right now she can't get up by herself but has earned our help. She is still happy, not in pain, gets around once she's up and can control her bodily functions so we can't put her down yet. She was SO happy when the kids were home for Christmas, I think it added a few months to her life she perked up so much.
Here's whole pack! Grizzly is on the left, he's 11 so considered geriatric too. We got him from the humane society as a puppy, he was found in a badger hole with his brother. He's the most laid back, lazy dog ever, even as a puppy he never played much, didn't chew on anything and still just lays around!
The evil eyed looking guy on the right is Doogan, the comedian of our hounds. He's a Border Collie, Shepard/Collie cross we got a giveaway. He's only 3 but is having back problems so is seeing my chiropractor. It's helping but we are still worried. He's brillant, busy and a very needy fella. Not evil at all but super friendly and loves showing off his tricks, play dead, roll over, turn around, get a certain toy, wave, etc. HIs slogan....will play for tricks!
I hope you enjoyed meeting our dogs, a celebration of Buttons life.
