We were driving through Sticklepath village yesterday, round about midday-ish, maybe a bit later, when we saw a lady walking two gorgeous slate Beardies down the pavement in the middle of the village....we had a car behind, so I couldnt screech to a halt and give chase....but, if that was you, then, Hello!

Spent the rest of the journey yakking to New Boyfriend about Beardies and how you Dont Often See Them Laughing and when you do, you usually Have To Leap Out of Moving Vehicles to Greet Them..... Laughing

People canít help themselves, we were at new year event today and a total stranger came up to talk to the girls and told us all about His beardie boy that he used to show, Sadly he doesnít feel upto getting another since his old boy has gone , he misses him so much he is worried he would alway compare a new dog with old dog that was his best mate.

Yes exactly, it happens all the time, doesn't it, and both ways: either it's us jumping/running to the spotted Beardie(s), or it's other people rushing towards us and our Beardie(s), to ooah, aaah and awwww over them!!! Laughing I wonder if it happens with other breeds! Question

Made me laugh out loud.....only got yourselves to blame Barbara Wink Laughing Laughing

I drove passed a gorgeous clipped Beardie, a couple of days ago as I was nearly home, I'm not sure if the owner saw my big smile and me shouting (from inside the car Rolling Eyes ) "it's a Beardie", but I reckon she may have seen my hairy Herbert's in the back Laughing Laughing Laughing

I know the feeling, we've only seen 2 Beardies in our town and that is very rare. As you can imagine, it's a real treat Very Happy As we don't have any now Sad

Geoff won't stop the car though. Twisted Evil Rolling Eyes

Well of course darling, but I do also have a brain!!! Laughing


Actually Looking back, when Bentley was about 3, we were in another town over in Christchurch and were driving along, when we spotted a couple walking their Beardie and DID stop!! Would you believe theirs was Bentley's Litter Sister. Shocked Very Happy How's that for coincidence! Lovely couple.
We didn't have Bentley with us at the time. Sad They were Born over there

Aww, his litter sister....When my late Betsy was about 18 months old, she was in the back of the car parked on the street in my mother's village. As I was getting out, someone walked past with a very similar type dog, so I stopped him and it turned out that his dog was HER litter brother...and he lived in the same village as I do, but we had never met. Betsy was NOT impressed with her brother, Dougal, and told him so quite sharply Very Happy

Long story short, after chatting over the years, we think that my Betsy was the puppy he was going to have, but because he didnt put a deposit down on her, and I came along the very next day, I got her!

Actually I've noticed too, that Beardies seem to recognize their own breed.

Dougal my first one, used to see this other one at shows and couldn't wait to go over to say hello to him. He'd be way over the other side of the grounds.

Oh but they do, there's absolutely no doubt about that! I think I told you here some time ago about the day I went with Foxie to an agility competition to support some of my friends who were in it with their dogs. There were probably more than 100 dogs on that field with their owners, and among them... just one Beardie, who was standing right at the other end of the big field. As soon as Foxie and that other Beardie spotted each other, his owner and myself were dragged like water-skiers by our dogs until they could meet!!! They had never seen each other so it wasn't just a "here's my friend!" thing! Everybody was laughing just looking at us, and it was indeed really funny! I don't think I've ever seen any other breed behave like that!

Jethro on the other hand is very wary of other beardies, even his brother Henri whom he sees occasionally. I wonder if its because there are no other beardies round here, although I know of a beardie brother and sister who live maybe a mile and a half away. They aren't walked over this side of Hayes. I suspect Jethro would be ok with the girl but not the boy. When we've been to the beardie fun days there have been some less than friendly beardies off lead that I think have put him off. He's very happy with other dogs though regardless of breed unless they are hostile.
