Angus and us

Howdy GR Gang!

I'm Louise and my youngest dd, Briley, is Angus' partner in crime. Briley and Angus are both home-schooled so they can get in tons of adventure time. Briley is in the 2nd grade and Angus is 11 months old working on manners 101, almost ready for 201. Dont let his lack of manners fool you, he is quite bright. I have to say his best talent is fetching matched pairs of socks and shoes to the right person and if you have ever seen the inside of a little girl's closet you can attest it can be a chore to find a match to anything! AND Angus can catch cheerios off his nose! He is indeed a talented young fellow.

Briley is dyslexic and has APD, auditory processing disorder. Angus came to us at 7 months old by way of a GR breeder family friend. We have had many dogs but this is our first Golden. Briley and my mom's Golden were bonded so when the opportunity popped up for Angus we jumped on it. I can't even begin to say how much joy he brings not only Briley but the entire family.

We have 3 other dogs, Cayenne the Komondor, Bindi Lou the Bully mix, and the baby of the family, 4 month old Ripley, the Basset Hound. We are an eclectic household!

Welcome and as Joyce said - we starve for more and more pics and stories! Joyce is quite the story teller, anytime you have a bad day just look Bentleysmom up and you will find more and more Bentley and Ky adventures.
