Yeah, it’s Monday night. Consider this Saturday dog blogging. Remember to send your pooch photos to borderstan@gmail.com in JPG format.

Meeting Julie and her dog, Finn, of Borderstan. Finn is a 9-month-old Kerry Blue Terrier, very energetic and playful (I know him). His breed is originally from Ireland and Wikipedia has this to say about the Kerry Blue:

Over time the Kerry became a general working dog used for a variety of jobs, including herding cattle and sheep and as a guard dog. It was, however, primarily developed for controlling “vermin” including rats, rabbits, badgers, foxes, otters and hares . Today the Kerry has spread around the world as a companion and working dog. Despite a Kerry Blue winning Crufts – the most important UK dog show – in 2000, it remains an uncommon breed. Not as threatened as some of the other terrier breeds (Skye Terrier, Sealyham Terrier, Dandie Dinmont Terrier), it is still distinctly uncommon.
