It’s Doggityday!

The world is loud and boisterous,
But God is quietness and a still small voice

(In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. Isiah 30:15)

    ~… Here’s a cute dog I had not heard of before for Doggity Day πŸ™‚

    Berger Picard, also known as the Picardy Shepherd, the Berger Picard dog breed is thought to be the oldest of the French sheepdogs. His scruffy looks and lively intelligence have won him plenty of fans over the centuries, and more recently, they’re winning him movie roles. The Berger Picard picks up training easily but can have a stubborn streak.
    Dog Breed Group: Herding Dogs, Height: 1 foot, 9 inches to 2 feet, 1 inch tall at the shoulder, Weight: 50 to 70 pounds, Life Span: 13 to 14 years

    Get to Know the Berger Picard: Not as Mixed Up as He Looks! You probably saw him in “For the Love of Winn Dixie” — but did you know he was a purebred impersonating a mutt? by Caroline Coile Dec 22nd 2014

    More interesting things about the Berger Picard – Berger (pronounced bare-ZHAY) means β€œshepherd,” and Picard (pronounced pee-CARR) refers to the region of France the dog is from. The breed is also known as the Picardy Shepherd. Dogs resembling today’s Berger Picard are depicted as early as the 14th century, and they may be the oldest of the French sheepdogs. Some claim they came to France with Celtic invaders as early as 400 BC.

    World Wars I and II decimated the breed as fighting took place around their farmlands, and food rationing didn’t allow for feeding large dogs. Breeders searched Picardy after World War II for dogs to rebuild the breed, and in the early 1950s found the dogs that would become the foundation of the modern Picard.

    In 2002 Hollywood producers cast the breed in the starring role of the movie Because of Winn Dixie. They needed several dogs that looked alike that could all play the single role of a mixed breed, and they imported five Picards from France. Picards have also appeared in the movies Daniel and the Superdogs and Are We Done Yet?

    The top pic is really interesting because you have a beach scene that looks like an artist then took a brush with white, black, and tan paint, and went smoosh, smoosh, smoosh, but you know exactly what it is even without a face – and you smile πŸ™‚

    The Westminister Kennel Club’s annual dog show at Madison Square Gardens is on Monday and Tuesday nights. I tried to set my DVR to record it, but apparently I don’t get the two channels it will be on, NatGeo Wild and FS1. Hope I can find a live stream and watch online. I love seeing all the breeds–202 of them. Such great dogs.

    Two articles from Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer today regarding truly heroic women, not these phony U.S. p-hat marchers….

    “Islamic Republic of Iran: Woman arrested for removing hijab refuses to repent despite facing 10 years in prison”
    Narges Hosseini is an actual feminist. Where are the feminists of the West speaking up for her right not to wear the hijab? Linda Sarsour? Anyone?
