My first son

Hey everyone, just wanted to share a picture with you. This is my baby. My first "child" His name is RowdyMutt, he's a border collie, a cattle/sheep herding dog. I love him with all my heart... and he is a wonderful big brother to CJ, and the smartest dog I have ever seen. Sometimes a little too smart for his own good.

He's going on 9 years old, and I can see its taking its toll. He's a little slower, a little more tired, and even a little grouchy at times.

He has been my best friend for so long. He warms my heart and makes me smile. He sits in front of the couch, and stares at me, till I tell him its ok to get up there with me.

He can't stand to see me cry, and will shove his nose under my arms, and cover my face with his kisses. Makes me smile every time.

Since we brought CJ into the world, my poor RowdyMutt doesn't get half as much of the attention he deserves, and it breaks my heart. I pray that one day we will live in a place with a nice yard for him to play. One day CJ will be big enough, and old enough to play with him... I hope and pray that he will be around to be a big brother for another nine years!!!

I Love you RowdyMutt!!

    Hi Amanda,
    We were in a similar situation. We had our first dog about 2 years before our first child. That dog (Cinder) stayed with us until my kids were 9 and 12.. So she (dog) had plenty of fun with my two kids and my children loved playing with her.

    Heres to all my wishing for RowdyMutt and CJ growing up together as Friends!
