Calvin's Puppy Pictures

I found Calvin at the Glendale Humane Society, on June 6 1998.  He'd been found wandering a busy street corner at Verdugo and Wilson on June 4.  I'd been looking for a puppy for weeks, and as soon as I saw him I knew he was the one!  Being about 7 or 8 weeks old, he was just the right size so he wouldn't make my 11-year-old cats feel threatened, but with the promise of growing into a nice medium-sized dog as he got older.  And he couldn't have turned out more perfectly!  As you can see from the chart below, he grew from 6.5 lbs in June 1998 to nearly 45 lbs the following January.  (As of Jan 2000 he is still about 45 lbs.)

Of course we'll never know for sure what his parentage is, but he is definitely at least mostly a Bearded Collie.  I've had such fun learning about the breed, and meeting others who have Beardies (both purebred and "other", also called Neardies).  On these pages you can learn about Calvin and his friends and family, and I'll include links (Coming soon!) to Beardie-related sites.  Enjoy!!
