National Pet Day

Here are my two lab/German shorthair mixes, Beauregard and The Birdman. We’ve had these guys since day one; they were the result of a happy accidental mating of Cleo, a chocolate lab and Henry, a German shorthair. There were eleven pups of whom ten are still alive. These guys are 90 pounds each of pure muscle. They have never had a bad day except one time when Beau escaped and got hit by a car (he ran home). They are very lovely and loving dogs. I’ve had dogs since I got married 35 years ago and love living with these wonderful creatures. 

Yes, they are brothers. Birdy on the left started growing grey (or maybe it’s ticking) when he was two. My daughter and I went to pick one from the litter and we wound up each picking one. Big surprise to my husband!
