Dog of the Day: Shamus the Briard

Another new breed for us. Apparently Briards are known as ‘hearts of gold wrapped in fur’. Which for some reason reminds me of the Douglas Adams quote about a drink that was like ‘having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick.’


Man, Briards are large. Also, they look like muppets.

    I have a Briard and they are truly “hearts wrapped in fur”.
    The drink that you are referring to is the Pan-Galactic-Gargle-Blaster…and boy, does it blast your gargle….
    Briards are herding dogs and are traditionally used as “living fences” in France to keep the stock out of the crop fields,and usually always work alongside a shepherd or tender. They are very much at home indoors with their family though and are loving, gentle giants.
