In this installment of “Friday Family & Friends” we are sharing my niece’s dogs. We recently spent Thanksgiving at her house; she and her hubby cooked us one awesome dinner! We enjoyed our time with family, and that family includes canines Ramsey and Crooked.
Ramsey and Crooked’s family consists of their Mom and Dad and their almost teenage daughter (at least I don’t think my great niece is a teenager yet…darn, they grow up too fast, don’t they?).
Ramsey is a 9 year old boxer/rottweiler mix who was born here in New Hampshire. He joined their family as a puppy, but he sure grew up to be a big guy! Ramsey is slim and trim and solid muscle, and one of the biggest sweethearts you could ever meet. He enjoys swimming, fishing, and hanging out in the shop working with his family.
Ramsey’s favorite indoor activity is chasing lights and reflections – you might even say he’s just a tad obsessed with that hobby. He’s a big spoiled guy who sleeps in his Mom and Dad’s bed, and I imagine doesn’t leave a lot of room for them!
Ramsey’s canine brother also sleeps in their bed, but since he’s the total opposite size takes up less room; Crooked is a little Chihuahua.
He is about 7 years old and a rescue of sorts. He was in a family with 6 kids and 6 dogs which was too much for that family, and he was in danger of going to the shelter. My niece stepped in and gave him a home. It was supposed to be a temporary home at first, I believe, but Crooked obviously convinced them he needed to stay. Crooked can be shy of strangers and he had some issues at first, but they worked through them. He still holds back a bit, but before you know it, he’s settling in on your lap.
Crooked likes to wear coats to stay warm in the winter, and in the summer he also enjoys hanging out at the lake, running around and riding in the boat.
You might wonder how he got his name? Here you go:
We hope you enjoyed meeting these two handsome guys today!
