Should she be under "Off Topic"???... I don't think so, Miss You is my beloved Honorary Beardie!!! And today is our third Gotcha Day!!!

Three years ago, I opened my arms, my door and my heart to a skinny, sad-looking and almost naked (shaved!) little brownish dog, a female Lowchen whose breeder wished to get rid of because her first 2 litters had not been any good (still-born puppies), so she was advertised on a French "Pre-loved" (in her case, "Pre-used" would be a better word Evil or Very Mad Sad ) website, where I saw her when I was looking for a rescue "dog friend" for Foxie - a smaller breed, due to the size of my house and tiny garden. She was 3 years old at the time and... she lived approx 700 km from me! I asked for help on my "Amis des Bearded Collies" forum and 48 hours later, her transportation was organised among my forum friends - I'll be grateful to them for ever, they are great people. Miss You stayed overnight with 3 of them and their families before, at long last, I met her on the car park of a restaurant about 3 hours' drive from here, on November 24th, 2012, where my friends Christian and Nadine (and their Beardie girl Folie) handed her to me and we celebrated her arrival together with a meal there. This is a photo of our first meeting - she was such a tiny thing then!

After 3 years, she has changed a lot and has become a happy, loving, funny and furry girl, she has gained more than 1 kg in weight (which is a lot for a small breed) and a Father Xmas type beard... Very Happy

Thank you so much for your good wishes and lovely comments! Miss You had a piece of boiled fish for dinner last night as a "Gotcha Day" treat (anything edible is always gulped down without even chewing it, in her case! Rolling Eyes Laughing ) but, as her 6th birthday was just over a month ago, she got no extra present yesterday (but Christmas is not very far now, though! Laughing ).

Miss You also says thank you to her FBC friends!

As I'm sure you all know, Lowchens are also sometimes called Little Lion Dogs (and that is their official name in French, "Petit Chien Lion"). You can see a good example of Miss You's "lion-like" behaviour here:

Frightening, isn't it?... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Laughing We used to say it was A Very Good Thing that lucyyorkie was soo small - she was frightening enough though she was smaller than a loaf of bread - imagine her the size of a Doberman..... Shocked
