Welcome to general discussion!

Did your Britt make you laugh today? Did he do something so smart, you are blown away? Those puppy teeth causing you to tear up, and you need an outlet? Or do you want to post a picture of his or her latest point? This is the place for it!

Hello to all

Post by Roan Bo »

I thought it was about time that I introduced myself and the best dog ever, Bo, to the forum.

My name is Kip, my family was fortunate to have found Bo through ABR in Illinois, and, quite simply, our lives haven't been the same since.
He is the most joyful mammal I have ever seen, and brings smiles to everyone he comes in contact with. His boundless affection erodes even the darkest bad day at work/commuter/rainy day mood. Despite a life FULL of loving dogs, I have never been so engaged by a canine, and I look forward to learning more about this breed.

I expect to have many questions, stories, and pictures to share, but for now just wanted to say "howdy".

Whow, he looks like a sweetie and I love the picture of his spotted paws on the spotted blanket. I'm glad that you're so happy with your new ABR dog. We adopted our first ABR dog 6 weeks ago and boy, our life has changed.....all for the better. He's filled with love that he's just been bursting to share. Janet

Hello Roan Bo!
I'm in IL too! That pic reminds me of my Eli, king of the household! At least in his own mind... :D

Wow, Cooper is remarkably similar to Bo. Interesting, everywhere I take Bo, he draws a crowd, and many folks who claim to know their Britts have challenged my assertion that he's a Brittany, because of his coloring. Even in the course of my searches, I've not come across one with his coat, till now.

He's difficult to get a good shot of because he is never still when outdoors, and when i put a camera to my face, he believes it is some sort of call for him to come to me for a hug, therefore he is seldom still, and away from me at the same time. Here is an exception....I had given him a bath and toweled him, but wanted him a bit dryer before letting him in the house. He tried to squeeze by my legs, and I told him no. He looked at me dejectedly, then assumed this pose, in the sun, for a good 10 minutes. Personality to spare......

Welcome and thanks for adopting. You're right - life is never the same once you let one of these dogs into it. I love all the freckles/spots too as you can see from this picture of Kayla. You don't see the spots when her hair is long, but after a haircut - WOW!
