Happy Birthday to the BEST dog ever!
She is loving, loyal and good-natured.
From the beginning she has brought us so much joy and laughter.
We got her just 2 months before my eldest son was born and she has a rather special bond with him.
Trying to do some pics of my boy and Chino decided she wanted to be with him and came and snuggled in next to him
She knows to be gentle with the kids. If I take her for a walk then she pulls me around the block, but give the lead to the kids and she is totally relaxed!
She is protective but gentle.
"Hey don't eat that leaf!"
Ever had a dog that actually plays fetch!? I tried training my dogs as a kid to play fetch and it just never worked. But Chino is awesome! She loves to play fetch - frisbees and balls are her favourite toys. (Although sometimes she can drive people a little bit crazy - any new visitor to our home becomes the SUCKER that has to throw for her - she is fun and she know's it
and she doesn't let you forget it).
This time it was my youngest son that was sucked into the fun
My husband works for my parents on a fairly large plot of land where they live and run their factory. Chino goes to work with him and spends time with the Rottweilers there.
The Rotties even get sulky on the weekends when she doesn't go visit.
She sometimes keeps some of the people out of their work (Sssshhhh! Don't say anything - She is actually just keeping work morale up - yup she is the "Employee Morale Manager", and the Rotties are "Heads of Security")
Anyway, so I decided to write this post because I was chatting with the moms over at SteemitMamas Discord Group and @Goldendawne was showing off her awesome homemade dog treats and I thought "Hey! Perfect Birthday Present for my woof". I'll be trying this recipe out tomorrow for my Birthday Girl: Goldendawne's Homemade Dog Treats
