While on the Internet today, the list of the top most smartest dogs popped up. Shetland Sheepdog was number 6. I think it should have been higher but oh well. I have always been an animal lover, but while raising kids, the pets were theirs and I didn't have time to bond with an animal. Well there were the two potbelly pigs, but that's a different story.
I was lucky enough a couple years ago to adopt a dog named Yoda. I kept messing up the name, so I renamed him Beau.

When it comes to everyone else in the world, Beau's personality is like Joe Pesci's roles in movies. Beau has what you might call small man syndrome. Sorry to anyone that might offend. He is all a toughy when it comes to dogs walking by our house, or on the other side of our backyard fence. But he will turn tail and run if there is no protection in front of him. To me, he is sweet and protective. He always knows where I am at and looks hurt if I go somewhere without him. Whether a walk or in the car. His favorite place to visit is my mom's. I don't know how, but he can tell if we drive by her place. He gets very upset.

|Bailey probably thought I wouldn't take a picture of her for her graduation unless Beau was in the picture|
She may have had reason to worry.
