Shetland Sheepdogs in Finland

IN LOVING MEMORY OF
FRODO

 

 

There's no such thing as the perfect Dog
People will say to you
And when it comes to Shelties -
Boy, is that ever true!

Some are too big and some too small
Some hardly have any hair at all
Some are too bold and some too shy
Some have a short tail or a big round eye

Crooked legs and splayed out toes
Prick ears , hound ears or odd coloured nose -
The perfect Sheltie just can't be made
But here's one thing that's really great:

To be perfect in their owners' eyes
Shelties only need one part
And every Sheltie I ever met
Had that loving Sheltie heart.
