(Motto: "I'm getting smarter every day!")
|Toby was a Border Collie and Husky mix. He weighed about 50 pounds and lived to almost 15 years old. He was very smart. He used to play tricks on Penny. We were very lucky to have found him via the Border Collie Rescue of California site. If you're looking for a dog we can highly recommend getting in touch with them.|
(also known as "Dogzilla")
|Penny was a short haired Border Collie. She weighed about 45 pounds and was roughly a year younger than Toby. We also found her via the Border Collie Rescue of California site. She was quite a handful when she was younger, but she and Toby got along just fine. Her favorite phrase was "Throw the ball!".|
(but he thought he was human!)
|Sinkyone was probably half Border Collie and half Husky/Samoyed. Nobody will ever know for sure. He was black and white with the thick hair and curly tail of a Husky. He was smart and strong, making him a great guard dog. He knew more than seventy human words! Take a look at the Sinkyone the Dog web page. He was one of the first dogs to have his own web site.|
|Dad's father was Polish, hence the surname. He served on the Polish destroyer
ORP "Blyskawica" in WWII.
The 1939 Crew of the ORP Blyskawica.
