7 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Mageth ~
Thank you.
Truffle the puppy has pulled out some of Conker's hair. Lol.
A good thing Conker has plenty......

7 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely photo TT , we saw a pup like yours visiting our local GC.He was only 11 weeks old,couldn't believe how tiny he was.A black coat mostly with tan and white paws-reminded me of conker. He was helping his owner choose plant pots !!!

Yes, Conker loves his watering can. :o)

7 Apr, 2009

 

I think Conker is a star. Such a wonderful companion and friend.

7 Apr, 2009

Conker you are a clever boy , I love your pot of pansys they are so pretty , you are looking after them very well ..
You are being very patient with Truffle don,t let him pull to much of your lovely fur out , you are spoiling him :o)

7 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Percy,
Conker says he has started teaching Truffle a few gardening skills. Truffle is just about to start losing his puppy teeth, so not learning a lot right now. Lol.
Conker is far more patient with Truffle than I am ! xxx

7 Apr, 2009

 

What a beautiful boy. I can feel that soft, thick and shiny coat from here.

7 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Toto, Amy and Ginellie ~
I'm hoping Conker can grow new hair faster than Truffle can pull it out. Lol. :o)

7 Apr, 2009

 

Awwwww thats Brill, your hose will be redundant now TT.LoL ,

7 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Dee ~
Conker's little watering can doesn't hold very much ~
so that means lots of trips to the water butt ~
It's good exercise. Lol.

7 Apr, 2009

 

Brilliant photo TT............Conker is gorgeous

7 Apr, 2009

 

Great photo TT ...

7 Apr, 2009

 

Looking good Conker! Can you please come to my garden next...I could use a hand keeping up with the watering. Do you do weeds as well? :)

7 Apr, 2009

 

Clever Conker - I hope Truffle doesn't follow behind and undo all his hard work :)

7 Apr, 2009

 

Awww...love him. He looks so proud. Do you think he could come over here and help me water all the plants in the greenhouse at work????

8 Apr, 2009

 

Conker is ready to help out in everyone's gardens.
He'll do weeding for Janette, Milky and Tasteyg ~
and he'll herd the tortoises for Gee19. :o)

Gilli ~
Conker could come to your work with you at the Garden Centre.
He'll water the plants, then load customers' items into their cars, and bring you skin cream for your scratched hands !

8 Apr, 2009

 

A very good garden helper :o)
He has a lovely coat TT - beautiful colours. I like your rockery in the background too.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Hywel.
Conker has worked hard on his gardening this spring.
He is teaching Truffle. Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Soon you'll have two good helpers. :o)
( well maybe . lol )

8 Apr, 2009

 

Truffle is doing his best. Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Good for him !
Rome wasn't built in a day. :o)

8 Apr, 2009

8 Apr, 2009

8 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Holly ~

Thanks, Teenyweeny :o)

8 Apr, 2009

 

Aw....lovely Conker ready to water that pretty pot of Pansies......:o) Now where is that little Truffle, up to no good I bet....LOL

8 Apr, 2009

 

Janey ~
You are getting to know my little family very well.
Truffle likes to chew pansy petals....
... they add extra taste to his salad. Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Your garden looks lovely! The grass is so nice and green, the flowers look beautiful and the rocks add a great touch. But.....
I barely noticed any of it with that GORGEOUS Conker there..And he is still a good big bro despite losing some of his fur...lol...

TT..you have to check out that link...If I didn't have 2 dogs already, that little boy WOULD BE MINE!!! He is too sweet not to check out...

8 Apr, 2009

 

The little boy I am referring to is "davey"-the first dog in the second row...

8 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks NN ~
I'll check that out :o)

Oooh, I've just looked at Davey ~
so cute :o)
You should have him, NN :o)
Boyfriend for your lovely girls. Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

I would, but I'm afraid it would be too hard on Chummy..And Scrunchion might just scare him to death! But he is sooo sweet, like a little Chummy..

8 Apr, 2009

 

Yes, we have to be sensible and not have too many dogs....
however cute they are....
But he is surely a distant cousin of Chummy ? Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

great shot TT, hi conker your sooooooooooo cute,, the garden looks lovely TT

8 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Sanbaz.
Conker loves his garden :o)

8 Apr, 2009

 

well he should because he has worked so hard,,keep up the good work conker :)

8 Apr, 2009

 

Sanbaz ~
maybe Conker could water your flowers when you go on holiday Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely photo TT, has he got any spare time?
Has he put on his summer coat?

8 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks DrBob :o)
Conker would be happy to help all GoY members with their gardens.
Typical Sheltie ~ he lives only to please everyone.... Lol.

I hope he's going to grow a bit more coat for the summer time.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Yes you have to be sensible...he...he....last year we had no Pusscats...now we have 3! Must be totally mad...but absolutely adore them, and Finn of course!!

8 Apr, 2009

 

Lol. Janey ~
Maybe Finn is wondering just how many pussycats is a complete quota in your household. :o)

8 Apr, 2009

 

I lv this thanks for sharing

8 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Lujean ~
Glad you found this pic :o)
Would you like Conker to help you with your garden ? Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

smashing photo tt.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you, Seaburngirl :o)

8 Apr, 2009

 

oh lovely Conker, you are a clever boy! I love the pansies lovely colours TT

8 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Skilla ~
That's good to know you like this pic.
Conker likes pansies.
Truffle likes to eat pansies. Lol.

8 Apr, 2009

 

Hello TT,
Goodness!! Conker's coat seems such soft, and he is a beauty!!
Well done for the pansies Conker!
Truffle food is that way -------->
..... leave the pansies alone! LOL

9 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Aleyna ~
Conkers says thank you. :o)
Truffle has just lost his first puppy tooth this morning ..
He gave a little squeal and then I think he swallowed it..... :o(.
One less tooth to chew the pansies... Lol.

9 Apr, 2009

 

It will come out somehow... lol!!!

Carolina, my daughter, is amazed about the looks of Conkers, she read everything wrote here about his breed.
Conkers really looks like "Mutley" the collie her boyfriend lost last year.

9 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Carolina ~
Conker says a special hello to you.
Glad he brings back happy memories of boyfriend's collie :o)

.... I shall be looking out for Truffle's tooth. Lol.

9 Apr, 2009

 

thats brill aswell, put that to favourites.

9 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Clarice ~
I can't keep up with you.... lol. :o)

9 Apr, 2009

 

You've got Conker well trained TT and he looks eager to help out with the watering....lol

9 Apr, 2009

 

Yes, Tina. You're right ~
Conker is very keen...
It's just a pity that he can't get very many litres of rain water in that little can. LOL.

9 Apr, 2009

 

well done for watering the Pansies conker your very clever aswell as beautiful.

10 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Zandra ~
Conker says hello and thank you :o)

10 Apr, 2009

 

If you do that watering well, Conker, you could get the job permanently!!

10 Apr, 2009

 

It's raining right now, so Conker has the day off. Lol.

10 Apr, 2009

 

My heart turns to mush every time I see a picture of Conker. As I work my way through this thread, I think the rest of GoY feel the same.
We seem to have part-interest in a neighborhood dog, I call him Vodka because he belongs to a Russian family up the highway. I don't think he speaks English. LOL My cats think I need to send him home...anybody know how to say "Go home!" in Russian? LOL

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Weeds ~
I'm trying to think of some Russian words for you.... Borzoi ?... that means Russian Woflhound. lol. :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

I'll shout "Borzoi!" at him and see if he heads home. LOL

11 Apr, 2009

 

From Russia with love, Lol.
Go for it, Weeds :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

If Conker stopped watering the Pansies and watered your weeds perhaps Truffles would eat them instead. Russian for go away is 'G'homeskimut.'

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Hameryllis ~
Truffle eats anything green. He would graze like a cow, given the choice ~
weeds, flowers, leaves.....
He thinks the tassels from JR are a special delicacy. Lol.

Thanks, I'll message you any time I need international translations.... Russian, Cornish, English.... :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi TT I expect you have to keep Truffles on a short lead when you visit other peoples gardens, or has he already been banned from your friends gardens ? I'm not too good at English but I'll give it a go.

11 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely shot of Conker and his pansies...gone to my favourites!!

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Panther ~
Conker is pleased to be watering all the flowers on your favourites. :o)

Hi Hameryllis ~ Truffle would be good at transforming gardens from formal to a much wilder, natural look....

With the credit crunch, I might hire Truffle out as a garden designer....

Good luck with the English... I have a friend from Devon, and he often uses West Country phrases which, to me, are incomprehensible.... I'm sure Cornish would be even more puzzling. Lol. :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

sweet

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Ualda ~
Happy Easter from Conker and crew xxx :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

What a lovely dog.

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Phil ~
Thanks for visiting Conker the Sheltie.
He says Happy Easter to you. :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

He's a lovely looking dog! I love these dogs although his long coat must give you a lot of work to keep clean.

I'd ask you to send him over to water my plants but then you wouldn't get him back because by the time he finished he'd have to start all over again with such a small can! Lol! :)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Balcony ~
Conker would enjoy watering all your container plants.
As you say, would take a long time with that small can !
No watering needed today I guess, with all the rain...

Conker the Sheltie keeps clean naturally. He's never needed a bath, and Shelties lick their feet clean like a cat. Truffle the Terrier puppy is the one with the muddy paws. Lol.

Enjoy your Easter :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Conker keeps clean naturally? I like him more and more as time goes on.

Aside to Hameryllis. LOL, we both got a chuckle out of your Russian. It must be working, he was in his own yard this morning. I was sorry to see him tied, even though he is a pest...he's so happy when he's cruising the neighborhood.

12 Apr, 2009

 

Conker is a very clever boy. Does he help you to dig the flowerbeds too?

13 Apr, 2009

 

omg, SO cute!

13 Apr, 2009

 

That's a totally lovely photograph, lol.

14 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you Darling, I hope you had a Happy Easter too!

14 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks everyone for your comments.
Conker and Truffle have been busy in the garden again this week.
My latest blog has more photos of their gardening ....

16 Apr, 2009

 

That's a picture to melt your heart!

The pansies look great :) Janie

16 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Janie, and welcome to GoY.
Enjoy :o)

16 Apr, 2009

 

aw lovely all my doggies do is wee on my flowers and lawn, i am so jealous!

27 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Kzzzzh ~
Conker is very helpful... :o)
Have you see my dog run photo, uploaded to GoY recently ?
My dogs do their puddles etc. in that dog run area, and then are on my lawn for playing and training...

27 Apr, 2009

 

TT, Every time I look at this photo I laugh...I just can't help it. It kills me! It's bringing tears to my eyes...I get like that over a good laugh! Such a great dog and a lovely photo!

1 May, 2009

 

Hello Pg ~
Yes, Conker is very special.
He is so keen to help around the garden. :o)

2 May, 2009

 

what a clever doggie

8 May, 2009

 

Thanks, yes he is very clever.....
He's my special boy... :o)

8 May, 2009

 

Good job Conker. I need to do some work w/Max

20 May, 2009

 

Boxers are very intelligent....
I'm sure Max would become a very efficient and eager garden helper. Lol.

20 May, 2009

 

Oh I do love this picture TT, Conker is so beautiful, all your dogs are. Just look at him holding the watering can, bless him

25 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks, Pamazon ~
Conker is very much my Head Gardener :o)

25 Jun, 2009

 

I know i'm kinda late with this comment but that is just the most sweet and innocent picture

24 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks, Lovegreen...
It's never too late to comment on any GoY photos.
When I have spare time, I enjoy going back and looking at older photos. :o)

24 Jul, 2009

 

Really good dogs, it is very cute!

31 Jul, 2009

 

Hi Jaderose ~
I'm pleased you like this picture :o)

31 Jul, 2009

 

Love this photo TT - I wish I could train our teenage son to do the same thing. We've just spent a week away and most of them are now dead!

3 Aug, 2009

 

Thanks, Frenchbean ~
Recently so much rain here that Conker's little watering can hasn't been used very often....

Crazy weather ! Did you see my pic of the big hail stones ? :o(.

A pity about your dead plants ! Maybe Conker could visit you and help with your garden... He's good at raking, sweeping, mowing and tidying up the flower pots.... Lol.

4 Aug, 2009

 

And I bet he doesn't walk around with his MP3 attached to his ears all the time either...Lol!

4 Aug, 2009

 

No.... but he does have his own toy piano which he plays with great enthusiasm. :o)

4 Aug, 2009

 

Bless him!

4 Aug, 2009

 

Sometimes Conker barks while he plays the piano keys. Lol. :o)

4 Aug, 2009

 

'Britains Got Talent' in his sight then ...Lol!

4 Aug, 2009

 

Piers, Amanda and Simon all say.....
YES :o)

4 Aug, 2009

 

Now all you need to do is to train him to dig weeds instead of your prize plants lol :-)

9 Oct, 2009

 

Hi Pip...How are you ?
Conker says thanks for visiting his pic...
He's a very good boy and doesn't dig up plants....
...helps with planting the flowers...:o)

9 Oct, 2009

 

Gorgeous photo..I've had 3 of these dogs over the years but now into the poodle x but the shelties are certainly amazing dogs...soooo intelligent.

18 Oct, 2009

 

Thanks, Judz...
Conker is very special..
Shelties and poodles are both intelligent breeds, aren't they. :o)

18 Oct, 2009

 

Does he do weeding? If so send him my way...!

19 Oct, 2009

 

Stunning dog - beautiful - going on my favs.

7 Nov, 2009

 

Thank you...
Conker is very helpful :o)

7 Nov, 2009
