My name is Bloubelle. I’m part Belgian shepherd and part hunting dog. I have a lovely made-up husky-like look about my eyes. I seem sadder than I really am because one of my tear glands doesn’t drain properly – so I have a sort of permanent drip of tears like a clown on one eye. I’m ten but I’m full of energy. Actually I’ve always liked my bed and these days can happily spend long hours in it. I was never trained to go to bed. Whenever we come home I usually am tired and head straight for bed. My humans live in the south of France and Denmark. In the former, I like to take off in the woods and find leftovers from hunters. In the latter, we meet lots of other dogs and have a different lifestyle. I have a healthy appetite except when I’m fed bones I don’t digest well or have stuffed myself with those leftovers… I’m essentially gentle and can handle children. Guests find me excellent company. I like to bark at dogs I don’t like or at humans I think aren’t invited. I guess that makes me a pretty good watchdog.
