Since I have a dog named Beau, well actually, he's isn't mine but my oldest son's dog, I could not resist to put on this bit with Johnny Carson and Jimmy Stewart reading a poem on a dog named Beau.
Our boy is similar, loves his freedom and to eat but he doesn't bite. When you sit he never stops pushing your arm up so you pat him. He can be very pesty. As a pup he was very friendly and smart, but because people's dog's who were not leashed, came up to him with aggressive tendencies, when my son took him for walks, he learned not to trust other dogs and barks at them before they decide to come to him when he is leashed. Because of this, he doesn't go out much now lol The young have the girls and no time for dogs and the old are too old to deal with this. lol
We jokingly call Beau an ol junk yard dog because of his colors and his rugged stalky look. He is a golden / border collie and something else mix lol . I never saw his Dad but I understand he was humungous. Both parents were country dogs. The Dad got hit by a car and the Mom was shot by conservationists, for chasing wild deer. Can you imagine that? There is no freedom for dogs anymore. Even in the countryside. But the owners were warned.
Beau loves to play hide and seek, especially when he's been doing something bad. lol He is really a great dog. But then...... most dogs are. Even the bad ones.
I can see why Jimmy Sewart would be crying for all dogs ........ named Beau. Enjoy.
