My friends Phyllis and Art are Old English sheepdog lovers, and after their last dog died, they thought maybe they were done with the care and effort of maintaining a large animal. They are serious about the breed. One of their former dogs won Best of Breed in Westminster, the gold standard of dog shows.
But, after a few months of a house without a dog, they decided to take the plunge. Ruby is about 7 weeks old, and in two weeks they’ll drive to Rochester to get her and bring her home to South Carolina.
Phyllis isn’t sure if the angle or close up makes Ruby look bigger than she is — or whether she’s on her way to being a really big dog. But Phyllis and Art are eager to welcome Ruby home, and promise pictures once she gets there. 🙂
