Arrival Story: Since my last dog died in 2005 I had longed for another companion. My last dog was a herder (Polish Lowland Sheepdog), and I wanted to stick to the herding types. My husband and me were looking for Aussies. We couldn't adopt one sadly, the housing office had breed restrictions and as it turned all the adoptable Aussies in our area were mixed with one of the forbidden breeds. We took to the classifieds and found Tim and his brothers. We made a call and a trip out there. The people that owned him had 10 other dogs, 5 cats and some kids. Which was good for him, since he is fine with everybody and every pet :) We took him home and that is how he became our baby. He was a really lucky pick for us, since he has no medical or behavioral problems. Yes, we are smarter now and know better... Thanks dogsters!
Bio: Once we had him in our house it was time for him to meet our teenager - our cat Bailey. Bailey was given to us by friends that decided they had one cat too many and knew we were looking for one. He had never seen a dog before, so we were somewhat worried and very cautious. At first Bailey poofed and wasn't sure what to make of the walking fluffball we had brought home. Timber -growing up with multiple cats- wasn't startled at all. Bailey was surprisingly calm and brave. He followed Tim around as he explored the house and sniffed him. Eventually I guess he figured Tim to be no threat. Now they even sleep together. Still, Bailey doesn't really play with Timber, even though Tim tries. What is really curious is that Bailey joins us on our nightly walks.
Pretty: Timber is very pretty, which he is told by everyone that meets him. His skirt and eyeliner combined with that make everyone believe he is a girl. Considering he runs like a showhorse or rabbit and doesn't really care for mud, one could really think he is. Plus, he doesn't lift his leg when peeing. He also loves to dry off on people (and lately dogs). So you have to watch for his butt-swing and his tongue :)
