(Wo)man's Best Friend

We walk around covered in hair that is not our own.
We spend money on treats, but not for ourselves.
We keep the sticky-lint-roller-thingy companies in business.

We are Dog People.

In light of the Indy Winter Classic Dog Show that is taking place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds this weekend (learn details here), I wanted to introduce you to the canine companions that bring adventure to the households of your “Blue Ribbon Blog”gers.

First up is Laci. She belongs to Bobbi Bates. Laci is a Miniature Schnauzer who is almost five…although you’d never guess it with her sweet little puppy face!

(Something tells me that Laci doesn’t sleep under the covers like that, but it’s too cute for me to wonder about it too much.)

Next up is seven-month-old Lola, who belongs to Angie Foreman. Lola, according to Angie, is “pure mutt” with a dash of Border Collie. And from these pictures with Angie’s kids, it looks like she’s pure fun too.

Last, but certainly not least, is my Sophie. She’s a Corgi/Beagle mix (a “Corgle,” I’m told) who is five years old. That breed combination makes for very short legs, a hound-dog sniffer, and a quirky personality.

From the second picture, can you figure out why I call her Yoda sometimes?

Our fourth blogger, Andy Klotz, does not have a dog. That’s okay though; he can always borrow one of ours if ever he feels the need for a good snuggle or a romp in the yard.
Are you a dog person? Come celebrate our canine companions at the Indy Winter Classic Dog Show at the fairgrounds, all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Just bring a lint roller.

  1. Total dog person here!! We have an 11 year old toy poodle- Sassy. We had 2 dogs but had to put down our Ginger in Dec 2007. They had grown up together... and we all still really miss her.
