My other boy, Rex!!!

Seen pictures of dogs and I go crazy, love them to death/ One of men’s and probably the best friend indeed.  I have written on my dog Rex before but seeing post on dogs made me write again about him who just happened to be laydown just below me as I write!

A bit of a recap on previous posts.

I always had dogs in my single life; and even as I was married back in 1990 with my Frenchie Martine. Once boys came to be all 3 of them I stopped having them and gave my current dog Maite to my parents. As my boys became older, the need to have a dog grew , but my wife wanted none of it. Finally, we convince her as the boys also wanted a dog. She was very enthusiastic once the decision taken, and was the first one to go and buy him a bed ,and ball toys etc. Unfortunately, she could not enjoy it fully as passed away from cancer. My boy Rex is my legacy of her and it is treated like a son in our house.

He is Rex, we got him from a dairy farm near me at 4 mos old a mix Border Collier and Labrador as commonly call Boradors. He is as gentle and protective as can be expected from  a farm dog.  He is now 27 months old fully black with white toes and 26 kg or about 57 pounds healthy as he can be with regular visits to the Vet at the Clinique Vétérinaire du Chêne, gourmet type dog food at Maxi Zoo with now a store closer to us in Vannes, and beauty salon baths cuts etc in our town at Tou Beau Tou Propre.

My boys takes him to the local big park Goh Lanno which of course I have written before on all the previous places above.  And he is very goood boy , very gentle , loving and we love him back hugely. We have taken him in the car to the Maxi Zoo store and to eat outs all very good. We are lucky to live in a house with a huge patio 1000 sq meters or about 10760 sq feet. That is him below with a neighbor apple in his mouth lol!!


On our last family trip with the boys we went to Toulouse and we took him with us and was perfect! Walk all over Toulouse with us!!! and even went ok to restaurants. We went to Lavaur and did the same thing , a pleasant outing. We take him to different parks now and already on schedule to go out on vacation with us again in May’20!



He likes Goh Lanno but also the pointe des Immigrés littoral park in Vannes! And right now we cannot think of doing nothing without him. And gladly ,nowdays there is plenty here to go around with a dog.  He is still laying down by me as always the protective guy, if I leave the chair he follows me everywhere in the house even the toilet which I need to close the door or he goes in too lol!!!


He is a good French dog as he loves the baguette bread! and just eats everything, we need to control it because he doesn’t stop eating if we let him. My luck is that with 3 grown men around the house they do most of the work ! and love him too , he wakes them up in the mornings as when I leave I open the upstairs door and goes into their bedroom to lick them up!!


Overall, it was the best thing that can happen to me after the shock and now he is nosing up my arms because he wants attention, he says I do too much writings lol!!!!

Do you have dogs? or family member with dogs? How are they? I am on a borador group and is great interaction with the dog owners!!! Anyway have a great doggy day y’all

And remember, happy travels (with dogs better), good health, and many cheers to all !!!

  1. Awww, a handsome dog! We had a neighbor who had a German Shepherd named Rex. He loved to play with my husband and me. One day, we came back from vacation to find out Rex had died because of an aneurysm. We were heartbroken. We bought a German Shepherd stuffed toy to remind us of Rex.
