Every time I post new pictures of Artie the Wonder Dog, I get the same questions. So I says to myself, self, the best way to deal with this is an FAQ!
1. Wow! What kind of dog is that?
Artie is a briard, a rather fascinating breed with a very interesting background! According to Wikipedia, “this ancient sheep guard and herder has … been used by the French Army as a sentry, messenger, and to search for wounded soldiers because of its fine sense of hearing.”
2. Is he yours?
No, unfortunately, that particular bundle of love lives with my Aunt and Uncle up in Massachusetts.
3. Is that a muppet, a wookie, the hair-bin at a salon?
None of the above! Jason thinks Artie walks around with his tongue hanging out to help clarify the whole dog-thing.
