Being BB

Being BB means you hang out with your brother, Baron, a lot (both were adopted from the same country shelter at about the same age, but are not littermates.)
BB and Baron

BB and Baron
Being BB means you sometimes do the varmint stalk, showing a bit of intense Border Collie tendencies mixed with your Rottweiler blood (so we think.)

Go, girl!

Squirrel!
Being BB means you're smart and alert, and at 7 years old, you learned a 'new trick' from older sister Thelma and began crossing your front legs like a proper lady.
Thelma and Baron in the background, BB imitating Thelma.


Louise and BB
Being BB means when mom works out by the barn, you're willing to hang out with her...
 but you get bored easily, too.
Being BB means when you go out the front door, you often bark to let the world know you're out there, you stay watchful, you play hard (bowling over Baron time and time again) but when you rest, you rest hard - and snore loudly (there's that Rottweiler stock winning over).
Being BB means you like to sink into an adorable fur-puddle at the feet of your humans in hopes of getting rubs and massages.
One of the reasons she's named BB - she has a double dewclaw on one back leg - sort of a "Bonus Bunion" :)
Being BB means you are loved.

Whole lot of chillin' going on there. :-)

Sandra said...

I LOVE THIS POST!!!! but then you knew I would! smiled all the way through and BB is a star with those crossed paws... Jake is our BB, stalking anything that comes in the yard.
you can whisper this in Louise's ear so the others don't hear, but I JUST love her face... really love her face... i love all dogs faces, they make me happy, some more than others. shhhhhh

SweetMarie said...

Love the pic of BB imitating Thelma!! In this last photo BB reminds me so much of my Rambo with those sweet eyes full of love. :) Beautiful post..

A Quiet Corner said...

And her name and "Being BB" fits her personality too!...:)JP

Best Friends Forever!

Anvilcloud said...

BB Queen, maybe? :)

Dianna said...

Aw....sweet pictures! And you can bet that BB knows she's loved, too!

Pom Pom said...

Aw! Cuties, all! One of my grandpups has double bunions on her front paws. The other day when I was over she jumped up and smooched me on the lips. Such a silly girl!
Your dogs are so well loved, T!

Gayle said...

Such a personality.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Bonus Bunion! BB....fitting!
She's a doll. And a proper lady keeping her legs crossed.

Dicky Bird said...

What a sweet dog - dogs. Mine run out the door and bark too, but I thought it was because they had "litte dog syndrome," but your dogs are big. I like the varmit watching.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Aww! They're so loveable!

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Last mentioned "Being BB" is the BEST... Being LOVED! Sweet post Tex! Any pet on the RAR is very lucky to call it home! Good Morning, Tex!

Lois Evensen said...

Awww, I love your dogs. Big, huggable, cuddly, protective, and they snore. So much like the pups we love so much here. :)

"E", ...Beth... , from VA. said...

i love it when dogs crosses their legs like that ... it is too cute!! great doggies. what cuties. i just can't pick a fave. ( :

Debby@Just Breathe said...

So precious and I love the crossed legs!

DJan said...

Who could NOT melt with love at those eyes? She's a beauty, strong and living life with all afterburners going. What a sweet doggie. I can't pick a favorite, either; it would be like favorites among your kids. :-)

eileeninmd said...

BB is so sweet! I love all your doggies. The crossed leg shot is just adorable, but I loved all the BB photos! Happy Monday, have a great new week!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Lovely critters!!!!

Maggie said...

BB is gorgeous much like the other BB (Brigitte Bardot)!
I love that both BB & Thelma cross their legs like little ladies do, so elegant. I've had 3 GS females over the years but not one of them ever learned to do that!

It's me said...

Owwww what a sweet post....love Ria...x!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

You have a great pack. My dream is to live in the country...with a writing loft in a converted barn...surrounded by dozens of loving fur balls.

MarkD60 said...

Beautiful dogs!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Oh I LOVE these sweet pictures of your babies (my favorite is crossed leg shot as well) and Yes,BB is loved as these pictures prove it♫♫♫

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Gail said...

Being BB sounds perfect to me. Love that paw cross.

Thank you for adopting.

Paula said...

Enjoyed reading about BB this morning.

Revrunner said...

Glad to learn how BB got his name. :-)

Inger said...

The cross legged picture is adorable. I wish you would do one of these for each of your dogs. I always thought the two black ones, Baron and BB were black labs or black lab crosses. Now I learn BB is some other kind of dog. I once had a black lab/border collie cross and I really think anything mixed with border collie will make a fabulous dog. I'm thinking of doing a DNA on Faith. There's a lot to her and I want to know.

S. J. Qualls said...

Such an expressive face!
I wish I could remember where I saw it - you can have your dog's DNA tested to see what breeds they are. A bit excessive, I would say, but I think it would be fun to find out what made Jack and Jill who they are. [If I was rich and they were famous]
Jill also crosses her front paws.
Have a great day, Theresa!

Being BB means you are the star of the story.
Great story about BB

LV said...

You you did another super job sharing the wonders of your pets.

bon bon said...

Charming girl living a charmed life! I adore all your babies. :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I'm loving the personality profiles. Especially that the last line is the same for each one! It would be cool if you'd eventually put each of their bios together in one place on your header bar. I would read them again happily especially when you do future posts featuring one or more.

MarmePurl said...

BB. Best buddy.

Karen S. said...

Being one of your pups means. life on earth is so darn WONDERFUL!

Wayne said...

I love the crossed paws.

Mary Hone said...

I would say they have that all down pretty good.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Those big gorgeous eyes- how could anyone resist that?!! Have a wonderful week Tex.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Good Morning! Love this post and the way they cross their legs. Miss B used to do that.
Great shots Happy Monday.

A "FUN"account of these dogs inter relationship. Nice writing that makes the pictures mean more and be more enjoyable. Well done.

ThreeOldKeys said...

I wonder how my grand-dogs would do on a ranch or farm ... definitely not as well as your foursome. It's fun to learn about B.B.

Miss Val's Creations said...

BB Baron and look great with crossed paws. :)

Andrew Fulton said...

I love all your pets xx

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

She's a blessed dog, for sure. So...what's the OTHER reason she's named BB? Love the varmint stalk. On last night's Funny Home Videos show, there was a dachshund doing the varmint stalk on his ball. So cute.

Gail Dixon said...

Love your "Being..." posts about your dogs. The crossed paws are too precious. Sending warms wags from Cajun country! :)

The eyes would melt anybody's hard heart.

Randy said...

So cute.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

BB looks to be a very smary dog! I like how he crossed his legs while relaxing :)

KB Bear said...

And, animal behaviorists say that dogs can't learn by imitation! BB can!!!

BB is truly a cutie, and I can see how very loved he is. I love that last photo of him looking at you out of the corner of his eye!

Rita said...

Aha! I love the reason for the name BB! They do look quite elegant with the leg crossing. :)
Love hearing about the dogs and their different personalities.

Paul said...

BB is a sweetheart!

Interesting she has double dew claws. Double dew claws is a trait most commonly found in the Livestock Guardian Dogs like the Great Pyrenees, Anatolian, Maremma etc.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Your dogs are all so wonderful!

Ms. A said...

Love the reason for the name! LOL!

Halcyon said...

I love these "tributes". It's fun getting to know your doggies through your photos and stories. You've really got a sweet bunch!

CHC Photographie said...

ladyfi said...

Your dogs are adorable!

Kathy said...

When I die, I'm hoping to come back as one of your dogs!

Jeevan said...

That’s wonderful of BB and this post let us know more about her. There’s a dog in our neighborhood that look like Louise. I see all your pet dogs are smarter :)

Lynne said...

I LOVE your "family" posts . . .
BB and BARON sure look like bro and sis to me . . .
You had me fooled!

Kovács Miklós said...

So beautiful black pair :)

Donna said...

She sure looks like a sweet dog!

messymimi said...

It looks like a great job, being BB!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Oh, she is such a devoted and loyal baby! Love the way they do copy behavior from elder pets. We have that with our youngest cat that copied from the eldest (who took her under his wings while the human parent got paralyzed, the day after we brought her home from the shelter...). Dogs or cats, doesn't make a difference, they know how to communicate and teach those things. Makes us love them even more!
Hugs,
Mariette

Busy Bee Suz said...

I've never seen the double dew claw before; so interesting. Being BB means she's a varmint hunting lady. HA HA. LOVE her.
I love that you have so many rescues; you're and awesome family!
XO

Helma said...

Oh she's such a sweet looking dog. In fact all your dogs are nice looking and I know they are well loved.

barbara l. hale said...

Being BB is a good thing...lucky dog! But I still think Thelma has the best ears in dogdom.

pattisjarrett said...

I miss having a dog at my feet. Our Golden Retriever was always nearby.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Nice to see BB featured. Definitely an adorable member of your critter family :)

Chandra Eswaran said...

Very cool to see all the dogos, Theresa! Now, you need a Dogo Argentino {or you can watch them on a Discovery Documentary about dogs}!
Nice to meet the rest of the family...
Have a Great Day!!
Peace :)

Jo said...

BB you are DARLING! I love the crossed legs.
