Zag Has A Girlfriend!

August 31, 2010


I’m barking on deadline because I gotta get this story out. My brother Zag has a girlfriend and they’re already living together!!

Her name is Katie and she’s a rescue dog. She’s from Idaho where Zag lives. And get this – she’s a McNab!

If you’re like us you’re probably scratching your head and wondering what the heck is a McNab. Turns out Katie isn’t just some mixed breed.  She’s a herding dog like me and Zag.

I’m too excited about Zag and Katie to tell you all about the McNab breed, so you’ll have to read for yourself. Try this link for starters: McNab Shepherd

Getting back to the real story, Zag has been kinda lonely ever since he lost his big sister Zoey. He pestered his mom a lot and acted strange. I kept telling him he needed a girlfriend to pal around with, but he didn’t know how to find one.

Then Zag’s mom got involved with a local rescue effort and the second dog she brought home to foster was Katie. My mom told Zag’s mom the two dogs would decide if they wanted to be boyfriend/girlfriend. But you know how humans are. They worry about everything. Well, Zag and Katie worked it out as soon as they met. Now Zag’s mom can’t keep them apart.

Zag and Katie

Here’s what I really like about this story. Zag was lonely and needed a girlfriend. Katie was lost and needed a home. Zag’s mom wanted to help out a poor stray. All three got their wish. It’s a win-win-win for everybody.

I’m so excited for my little brother. This has been a real fun bark. Gotta run!

    …..I only have a minute here..(pant, pant) I feel like an old man with this cat like woman who is so light on her feet and loves to play! She has adopted us immediately but has to really get to know Rhett the little white dog..and so I guess Mom is taking her on a walk today with Rhett to see if Katie will chase him or anything..who cares? Besides I need a little siesta! She watches for Mom all the time but it makes me happy. I think she was a deserted soul and also had been very intimidated. I think she is already forgetting about that and has some wonderful manners so was loved in some way by someone…..I am known as “kindheart” she will now be known as “sweetheart”. We don’t have that kind of name for the little white dog! (Actually he is my friend and a wonderful big soul in a little body!) Thanks for Barking about us..hope you get to meet her…gotta go get some zeeees while I can! Love, Zag
