One year ago (last week), we brought this cute little guy home:
Travis is a Blue Merle Sheltie. Nine months later, we were gluttons for punishment brought this little cutie home:
Rolex is a Sable Merle Sheltie. Notice his ginormous paws as a puppy? I had a feeling he’d outgrow Travis in no time. I was right. Here’s a picture I took of the boys yesterday – keep in mind that Rolex is almost exactly 9 months younger than Travis, and he still has some growing to do:
What’s really funny is to watch them play – Travis, being ‘older’ tries to be the Alpha Dog, but Rolex can wrestle him to the ground faster than he can say “Woof!” Travis is the hyperactive busybody one, where Rolex is very laid back and mellow. Their personalities balance each other out nicely, and they tolerate love Princess Nagger (mostly because she can be a messy eater, especially when she’s wandering around aimlessly with a snack) and are ever watchful of her when she’s out playing in the yard.
They fit in well with our family, because they are the epitome of Dork Dogs.
