Nine Today

Mindy turns 9 today.  In honor of her special day, I thought I would tell you the Nine Reasons I Love Mindy.


01d6b0189448943bfe1e6c257324a01911dd6046c31.  She gets sooooo excited when we get ready to go for a walk.  Everyday.  Like it is the first time every time.  I love her enthusiasm.

3.  She endures the celebratory bow ties.

5.  She is not fond of junior high aged children.  Not sure why, but she runs and hides in the back bedroom whenever a child that age is around.

8.  She and Ellie are my constant companions.




9.  She loves to herd Woody.  Mindy is German Shepherd/Border Collie mix and has a very strong need to herd.  She also loves to lick his face.  He’s used to it now.



We do love her and are so glad she came into our lives.  Happy Birthday Mindy!!!!
