This is Finnegan.
Finn is an Australian Cattle Dog mix.
Finni (as he is affectionately referred to) lives in Michigan with Kimberly Santini and her family.
I met Finn (cyberly) a few years ago and knew so little about him.
Finni is one heck of a character.
His Mum's words draw a great picture:
"He's a dear guy with a strong affinity for frisbee, snowflake and raindrop herding, and good neck rubs. Evan learned to read with him - they still snuggle together every night reading comic books or listening to music (Finni likes Green Day and Lady Gaga).
He takes squirrel patrol duties very seriously and also excels at yard work (picking up sticks and other debris alongside the kids). He sings along with "Happy Birthday" and the Michigan State Fight Song . He's a great snuggler with the boys, moving from bed to bed during the night (he'd probably sleep with Annie, too, if he could figure out how to get up the ladder into her loft!).
He's also learned to pick up the boys' stinky laundry and put it in the hamper - however, we began discouraging that when we found him sneaking socks out and stashing them for a later retrieval (and treat).
He's just a genuinely willing guy, eager to do whatever you ask at a moment's notice. A quick learner with boundless amounts of energy.
Our household would be very dull without that crazy scrabble of nails on the floor, followed by that goofy face asking to be brought along for a ride..."
Finni's portrait is on it's way to his home ... I wonder what he'll make of it?
