Cute indeed- he would go really will with our youngster- same white/grey nose.

Our pets never have birthdays as they are and have always been rescues with unknown past. It's like a geriatric home here, 2 dogs approx 15 and a cat a bit older (+ us too .; ) - my dad had a Bernese sheep dog called Flopsy by his cousin from New Jersey. Very sad demise during the 1st world war when dad was 6 years old.
