Happy Birthday Bonnie

Today is Bonnie's first birthday!

Not very long ago Bonnie looked like this... what a cute little fart!




The day we brought her home August 2, 2008.





That same evening Bonnie realized Ranger was just a little bit different.



Bonnie and Ranger were inseparable from the first. He loved sharing chew time with her




To this day Ranger will let Bonnie take a bone right out his mouth.




He created a bone hoarding monster. She lies in wait, the minute one of the other dogs takes their attention off a bone, Bonnie swoops in and snatches it. Stinker...




A few days after we adopted her I shot this video. Ranger so sweetly was sharing his favorite toy with Bonnie at 3 months.

Bonnie's first Christmas



At 8 months old we tried her on sheep again. From watching this video I think I can see what Patrick Shanahan meant when he was explaining how 'remedial' obedience may have begun to interfere with her drive. She is trying so hard to behave that it is overriding her urge to herd.

I simply adore our little freckled monster.



Happy 1st Birthday Bonnie Boo!
