This is Oreo. She is a mamma's girl. She is 12 years old. We adopted her when she was 3 months old from our local shelter. She is a mix of Australian cattle dog and border collie. She is a very sweet, lovable dog. She sometimes forgets that she is a dog.
This is Lip (Philip). Technically he is my sister's dog. But since he lives here about half the time I tell people we have joint custody. He is also a rescue. Lip is a boxer mix. He is 4 years old. Lip is very energetic. He prances when he walks and it is the cutest thing ever.
They are not blood related but they look so much alike. Oreo thinks she is Lip's mother. He gets into trouble and she corals him in. It is pretty funny to watch.
Oreo is the one in charge and Lip knows it. But he still teases her. Being older she gets tired quicker then he does. So when she goes to lay down he will go over and nudge her. They love to run around like lunatics.
They are truly a part of our family. They have Christmas stockings. Oreo loves Christmas and birthdays. Whenever we call people to sing Happy Birthday she always barks along. They have birthday hats and get a birthday present.
They have their own favorite toys. Oreo loves to be wrapped in a blanket. She will get it when she wants it. At bedtime it is a must.
Lip likes to wear sweaters. Oreo sometimes does, sometimes not.
Lip loves the snow. Oreo HATES the snow and rain.
They make our family complete. YD doesn't think so. She thinks we need one more puppy.
