I did this same post last month featuring my cat Jimjam - you can read it here -
I know a few of you enjoyed reading all about him, so I decided to do a second post featuring my dog Sasha,
I occasionally put photos up on instagram of her so in this post you can learn more about her.
What is your pet’s name?
What kind of pet are they and what breed?
A dog of course - she is a short haired border collie but don't get her mixed up with the black and white breed, she actually is a blue merle collie - so she has a merle gene which creates these pretty patches of colour she has.
How long have you had your pet?
4 years and 3 months.
How did you get your pet?
After my mum has passed away my dad was living alone so we decided getting a dog would help a great deal, not only to help take our mind off such a tragedy but also to give my dad some company.
We got her in the February 2010 from Nutshaw Kennels in Burnley as a pup, she was all on her own in a kennel looking all sad and lonely, her sister had been sold a few hours before, there were lots of different breeds of pups but my dad didn't want to look any further and that was the day Sasha came home with us.
How old are they?
She's about 4 years and seven months now.
What are some quirky things about your pet’s ?
Overall she's a mad ball of fluff, if she isn't trying to squeeze into the tiniest spot just so she can sit in your lap and join you you, she constantly follows you round like a shadow, its very rare these days I can go anywhere without her being there.
She's ALWAYS happy - I wish i could learn a thing or two from her about not letting life get you down.
She adores teddies and will rip their noses off and the care label only, no idea why.
She's just a sweetheart in general, I couldn't name a bad bone in her body.
What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
She's my best friend, its a bit different owning a dog to a cat, dogs depend on you more, she may not be mine but I feel like shes my responsibility, dogs aren't an easy animal to own because they need your care an attention every second of the day, but she is always their for me, walks in the park are funner because of the daft things she does and she's like a ray of sunshine everyday I see her, that wagging tail and happy face each time she see's me makes me feel lucky to have her in my life.
What are some of your favourite past times with your pet?
Everyday we spend together, our walks together, there is nothing better than going for a walk with your dog to clear your head, but the one thing I will always remember is that after losing my mum, she was the reason I managed to smile so much through them hard times.
What are nicknames that you call your pet?
Everyone she owns that squeaks, if it doesn't squeak, its no good.
What do you love about your dog??
