Ansel's Family Photos

By LynneJoyce  
After taking Ansel for his swimming lesson on Tuesday I called in at Gazegill Organic farm where he was born.

Gazegill Organics

While there I took lots of photos of the rare breed animals (they will come in a later post) and of Ansel's family, Mum, dad and siblings. V's 13 & 14 are recent ones of Ansel on Baildon Moor so that you can check the family resemblance. Note the hips higher than shoulders trait, the spotty legs and in V2, the tongue out. Ansel's farm family have much thicker (and muckier) coats being outdoor, farm dogs but the physical resemblance is clear, as is the good natured but roguish behavioural tendency. In view of the family's love of playing in the stream, I have no idea where Ansel's fear of water comes from.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy this canine portrait gallery. I may print some and hang them in Ansel's crate!

Looks like he comes from a long line of fun loving workers. All dogs should have such a happy place to roam freely.

How strange that Ansel has a fear of water unlike his country 'cousins'.
A beautiful dog and family. It won't be long before your walls are covered in portraits.

The link shows what a wonderful farm that is.

I like the family album pics, Lynne, and can certainly see the family traits in there.
