Meet Bean!


Bill and I had a fun day saturday but I haven't done them up yet and today we had a busy day and I am definitely tired. We drove to Massachusetts to pick up my new puppy, a Border Collie. He is an early birthday present and he is the sweetest little guy. He is also a smart little guy, he sticks close to me and stops when I do, he chases and brings back tennis balls, even the regular sized ones. No accidents yet, he seems to get that look that tells me to take him out and so far he has done his business outside.

Tonight he is being spoiled and sleeping next to Bill on the couch, but he will have to go in the playpen, overnight. He is in a chewing stage, so for now he will have to sleep there.

I would like to introduce Bean. His name came from a character in the Ender series by Orson Scott Card. There is also a movie called Ender's Game, based on the first book. Ender was a small kid who was super smart so I thought it was the perfect name for my smart little guy:)

Congratulations on your newest family member. Great choice! Nikko has had many Border Collie playmates. They are friendly to other dogs and so eager to please (and train). I also understand they have one of the longest life expectantcies in the dog world. May you enjoy many years of companionship with little (soon to be big) Bean!

OMG, I just LOVE baby puppy breath and people think I'm crazy when I say that. I'm a firm believer of crate training as it makes for a happy parent as well as a happy puppy to do (or not do) what pleases his mom.

Congratulations on a cutie!

Bean is beautiful!! We have an 11 year old border collie, Abby, who is the love of our life. I always say she's smarter than I am - she really is. You will enjoy Bean.

Aw he is just adorable! We're getting a new rescue next Sunday. She is named Rolo, 11 years old and blind. She looks like a little teddy bear - Wheaton Terrier mix. I just can't wait. Aren't dogs just precious?!?
