Talking A "Tail" of Obsession.

This is Artimus, AKA Artie the One Man Party. Artie is, like most GSDs obsessed with the sphere. It doesn't matter the size, the color, who has it, because HE NEEDS IT! Artie's drives are over the top, and quite frankly, if I had sold him, I am most certain that an owner would have returned him. Artie spends the majority of his day, finding ways to play ball. He always has one with him, either in his mouth or by his mouth. Tennis balls are a big no-no with me, so all my dogs either have hard balls on ropes we get from Sweden or larger ones, which are just as important to Artie.

So, this is Artie.


And this is the object of Artie's Obsession.


A cue of "bring" releases Artie and he is off to acquire his obsession.


"Feets don't fail me now!"




There are more pictures of Artie enjoying his Jolly Ball in "my albums". The ball was brand new on Saturday when he stole it from one of the other dogs. Then it had a nice rope attached, which made it easier for me to throw it for him. Last night, he successfully removed the annoying rope, and promptly stored it in his toy bin for later enjoyment. Such a silly dog.

Thank you!

Out of all my dogs, Artie is the most expressive. He has so many facial expressions, which make him so much fun to photograph. I had several of his head shots made into a poster collage. We used 20 different shots, because we couldn't decide between the nearly 100 or so I had taken of him. The printing shop I use for those types of things asked to use a couple of his head shots for the ad campaign.
