Sometimes being man’s best friend is a ruff gig. Training and caring for our hoomans is an arduous but rewarding process. We are solely responsible for ensuring they get their daily walks. We never know when they might dare to run errands without us to protect them, or eat food without first using our keen noses (and sometimes tongues) to inspect it. They never acknowledge that a mere drizzle of drool adds so much flavor. After all, it’s wrong to keep such deliciousness to ourselves.
As we get older, we realize that life really is all about us and it’s important that our hoomans know this. What would they become without us? How would they know when someone pulls into the driveway or when a bird sits on the railing? What would they do if they actually had to bend down and pick up the food they drop on the floor?
And, now that we’ve started to make mini-me’s… there is no stopping us!!!
Meet the Pack
“Maisy Mae” is a Southern Belle and as sweet as grandma’s sweet tea. What does that even mean? We never knew Grandma ever had anything except treats! And, boy do we love Grandma’s treats! Maisy is a long hair black and tan and weighs 9.25 pounds.
“Lizzy” is our sweet little sister. She doesn’t like to bark at the Amish buggies or the birds like we do, but we still love her. She is a riot! Lizzy is a long hair shaded red and weighs about 9 pounds.
“Stars Hollow’s Miss Rory” is our own little version of the Victrola puppy. When she cocks her head to the side, it transports us right back to the 1920’s or whenever that ad came out… it’s not like we are alive then! Rory is a long hair black and tan dapple. As the daughter of Emmy Lou and Gig (Gilmore Girls litter), she is a Cantrell Pup through and through. Her full grown weight will be about 10 pounds.
“Gig-a-Bite” is the main man of the household. He is a 9-pound long hair black and tan. Mom says he is special because his daddy is a champion – Guzzunder CinJay’s Prince Charming. Whatever! He is a spoiled brat if you ask us! It is his job to keep all the girls in line and to hog up all the belly rubs. He does a good job a that second thing – not so much the first!
“Williest of Nilliest” is quite the little charmer. He is a little hard headed… stubborn is what we like to call him. But, he is a quick learner so we may be able to whip him in to shape soon! Willy is a long hair black and cream male
“Baron von Woof” is our big brother – and by big, we mean huge… He probably has a horse or two somewhere in his pedigree and just doesn’t want to admit to it. Mom says he took a very long, hard road to get to us, but we can’t image life without him. She said something about rescuing him, but I think he rescued us! We like him because he is German like us so we can understand him. And, sometimes, he has a lot to say!
More About Us
Mom says that it is important to tell y’all that we are born and raised in a small rural town at the very bottom of Illinois. We are about 2.5 hours south of St. Louis and about 2.5 hours north of Nashville which puts us about 6 hours south of Chicago and 6 hours northwest of Atlanta!
We are all raised in the house as part of the family. Sure, it makes the house really loud sometimes. We are the best doorbells ever! But, if we weren’t right here with them, how would we know when our hoomans needed cuddles and kisses?
