I found this tag that Jessica Rachow did on her blog and thought it was so cute! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, please do. You can meet her beautiful pup Cheyenne! I dis this tag for Bowie already and you can see it by clicking here. Today, I thought I’d talk about Cynder.
1. What is your pets name?
Her name is Cynder Rae.
2. What kind of pet is it and what breed?
She’s a border collie pup.
3. How long have you had your pet friend?
Cynder was born on in January 2015 and we’ve had her since she was about 5 1/2 weeks old.
4. How did you get your pet?
We bought Cynder from a breeder. It was sort of a shady deal though. We were supposed to get her with registration papers. When we arrived at the meeting place (which was about an hour from our house) the man showed up with her, but he didn’t have her papers. I was sort of bummed, but once we saw her, we fell in love and didn’t really care. He ended up giving us a discount and I was happy with that. Looking back now I’m so glad we didn’t decide differently. She’s been the biggest blessing to our family.
5. How old is your pet?
She’s 3 years old.
6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality?
Cynder is amazingly smart! She can turn on the water when she wants a drink, open doors, and understands sentences. When she wants attention, she knows exactly how to get it. It’s amazing the life lessons she’s taught me.
She never stops herding my younger children (the sheep), and she’s been such a great mom. She just had her second and last litter of 8 puppies and was such a pro. She also likes to swim in our pool.
She went through a period of digging holes all over outside, but when we reprimanded her for it, she seemed to understand she shouldn’t be doing it. It didn’t take long for her to stop. She also used to take our shoes out far from the house and leave them. We’d go nuts trying to find them.
She loves water, but hates taking baths…
She’s always been pretty fearless…
7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
I’ll say the same thing I mentioned on Bowie’s post– they mean everything. We love all of our pets and I don’t know what I’d do without them. Each one is unique in their own way and they’ve all taught me so much.
8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?
Since she was a puppy, she loves the snow! I guess all dogs do, but I just love when we have our first snow of the season and the way she just takes off and scoops the snow into her mouth.
We love to play frisbee and ball because Cynder could actually run all day long 365/24/7. She’s nonstop and loves her freedom. In fact, we once thought we lost her. You can read that post by clicking here if you’d like.
We also love training her to do new tricks. She started learning numbers with jumping last year and I hope to continue with that.
9. What are nicknames that you call your pet?
We call her many names. My husband calls her Cyns and my main name for her is Rae which is her middle name. My kids sometimes call her Cynday. I also tell her she’s my Rae of sunshine because that’s one of my favorite songs and I modified it just for her…
Rae is my sunshine, my only sunshine
Rae make’s me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know Rae, how much I love you
Please don’t take my Rae Rae away
