I've never read a memo that was as long as an...

epic poem!  Yeah I know Pug Blog Fans...I have been long winded; but I really wanted you to get to know the "peeps" behind TootsUncommon LLC.  And the last two are quite the dynamic duo....a mom and daughter team to be more specific.  Now these two have the best of all titles because they are a part of the crew...you know, the support staff.  The ones you count on when you need an extra hand, a little spark of creativity or some distraction from the routine. Now the dog breeds behind our mom and daughter crew just might get you thinking a bit because I will now introduce you to Border Yodllies and Irish NikTerrier.  Now, for our other LLC Team Members I did focus on their positive traits.  But...since these two are mom and daughter I thought it might be fun (AKA naughty) of me to mention their not so "easy" traits...not to say that these traits make them not so "easy" LLC Team Members.  Quite the contrary, they are amazing team members and provide what TootsUncommon needs at just the right moment and in just the right way.  That is not to say that mom and daughter won't and/or don't clash at times as that is simply human nature.  It appears that both breeds - the Border Collie and the Irish Terrier - are both a bit hard to handle.  So, if we use the math philosophy of two "wrongs" making a right then we have a winning team in Border Yodllies and Irish NikTerrier!!

Border Yodllies

  • An intense athlete who can drive you up the wall with obsessive and destructive behaviors if you don't provide lots of exercise and creative outlets for his energy
  • Compulsive chasing and nipping at things that move: children, joggers, other animals, bikes, cars
  • "Separation anxiety" (destructiveness and barking) when left alone too much
  • Shyness when not socialized enough
  • Shedding
Irish NikTerrier
  • The dynamic terrier temperament 
  • Providing enough exercise and activities to keep them busy
  • Aggression toward other animals -- chasing instincts
  • Stubbornness
  • Digging holes
  • Barking
  • Regular brushing and clipping of the wiry coat
  • Waiting lists (hard to find) and high price tag
Alright already, my  paw is cramping from this epic memo!  Pug Blog Out!!
