Finally, in your own words tell us something about both you and your 2 leggeds that the questions haven’t touched on or asked about – something unique …
“Ok, although we are sisters we look very different, and to a certain degree we have differing opinions … see below.”
“We were born on a hill farm in Wales.
Misty here … “I am like my doggy mum …and l love my home comforts, curled up by the fire in winter and lying on the cool kitchen floor in summer.”
Sasha here … “And l am like my doggy dad … l am a typical farm dog and proud, whatever the weather, it doesn’t bother me, l am out in all of it!”
“Our two leggeds would be absolutely lost without us, they say it keeps them young ( cause their old woof woof ) we have helped them through some tough times, they are always there for us as we are for them, because we are family, and that’s what family is all about, isn’t it?”
My special thanks to Sasha and Misty, Mags and Jen for pawticipating in our K9 questionnaire – and sharing a little of life of what it’s like to be proud Welsh Sheepdogs, home comforts, outdoor life and fun and frolics and most of all being part of a truly loving family, all there for each other. Because l agree girls, that is exactly what counts.
Way to go to the girls Sasha and Misty, Power to the Bark!

Hope you enjoyed reading … Tootle Pip from Doodlepip!
Also l have now introduced a new series called K9 Product Review Interviews in case some of you might like to tell us about something that you do – be this crafty hobbys or past times and activities or even a business for we K9rs and Feline Katz.
Dad and l are currently in discussions about vocalising these interviews in the future, so that is something l am quite keen to explore further.
Now l know that many of you must have K9’s equally as much as Feline Katz  – isn’t it time you let them have their say and take our number to 43!
Is 43 You?
Looking pawards to hearing from many, many more!
