Meet Willie!

1 Apr

This is my formal introduction to my faithful and very small audience of my little brother, Willie! While he might not have anything to do with grammar, he makes me happy. He makes a lot of people happy! Good moods foster good grammar. If you believe that you’re gullible, but I need an excuse for the copious amount of Willie pictures that I plan on posting, so there you have it!

Willie is a one-year-old Sheltie. He is the happiest creature to have ever walked this Earth. Most people say that they rescued their dog. Willie rescued us. My family and I were mourning the loss of our first dog and Willie’s older brother, Sheff. Willie helped fill the enormous void that Sheff’s loss created. Willie did not replace Sheff—no one could replace him. For me, as the youngest member of my family, I was born loving all of the members of my family. Sheff was the first thing that I grew to love. Our need to get Willie was a testament to how much we loved Sheff and his influence on our lives.

Significant dates:

  • 30 December 2010: Willie’s Birthday!
  • 19 March 2011: Willie Day! The day we adopted him

    What a cute dog! They really are family members, aren’t they? I’m still mourning the loss of my 12-year-old dog, so I now how you feel.

    Hey Bernie, thanks for following my “Awakening to Love” blog! Maybe it is not clear – I am just putting the bits together – that site is just a presentation of 4 books I am in the process of publishing – I have info of them there and some texts from them. I also have a Course in Miracles blog – a link will be posted on the Awakening-blog.
    And I LOVE Willie, and how you write about him – love is pouring out there. It does dot hurt that you are funny, too!!

    I reblogged your great post to the wrong blog when I meant to reblog it to my Geriatric Pet Care blog. I’m unable to reblog the post again the the right blog as a result. I just wanted to let you know when you review the post. A wonderful story. I hope I can share it with my Geriatric Pet Care audience.

    • berndavis 4 June 2012 at 4:50 pm #

      I’ll certainly share it with them. How do I do that?

    What WOULD we do without our beloved dogs?

  15. redviolin65 9 June 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    I just love your dog. I have a weakness for dogs.

    Willie is absolutely wonderful! I hope you do post lots of pictures! I had to leave my special little one behind when I moved to India. The trip and the heat here would have been too much for her and I miss her terribly. Your Willie reminds me so much of her!

    Willie reminds me of our first dog, a Sheltie I named Scout. (Jean Louise was a little too formal.) Thanks for following my blog. I shall enjoy following yours.

    Hello to Willie from all our former foster dogs (whom you may have read about on my blog when you stopped by) and from the Grammar nazi (who shows up periodically and whom you will love.) It’s always nice to meet another person interested in grammar and dogs. When I saw BernBabyBern, I was trying to decide if “Bern” was for “Bernie” or whether you were from Bern, Switzerland. 🙂 I look forward to more Willie pictures. And if you click on “Dogs” on my site, you can read about Bernie our foster dog for a week (and what a week it was!)

    While he might not have anything to do with grammar, he makes you happy…

    Hi, thanks for reading and following my blog. You have a very useful blog.

    God bless…

    My mom loved Shelties. They are gorgeous dogs (furkids) with tons of personality. Always remember, “Happiness is a warm puppy”. 🙂
