Great Caption

I find that when live gets hectic and stress takes over being with Buster takes me out of my crazy world and calms me down.  Dogs have that special power.

Buster ENJOYS his nap.  I wish I could relax like that!

So eloquent and regal.  Captures the essence of the breed.

Man’s Best Friend

Did you ever wonder where the phrase came from?  Here is Wiki’s explanation:

Man’s best friend" is a catchphrase for tame dogs, generally referring to the category as a whole. The popularization of the term is said to have occurred in a courtroom speech byGeorge Graham Vest in Warrensburg, Missouri in 1870 who said, “The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.” The phrase was later shortened to “man’s best friend”. Vest’s speech came at the closing of a trial in which he was representing a farmer who was suing for damages after his dog Old Drum was shot[vague] by a neighbor.[1][2][3]

The breed comes in 4 different colors: blenheim (red & white), tri-color, ruby and black and tan.  Buster is a Blenheim with freckles.  They are all so cute and their markings are amazing.
