Guinness is a 3-year-old Pit Bull. He was found as a 4 month old puppy as a stray in the woods while on a mountain bike ride. He had no pads on his feet, only red, raw stumps from running. He was brought home, given lots of love, and is now a plump boy with lots of friends and more toys and treats than you can imagine. When I first got him, I was carrying him around (because of his feet) and showing him to people. I was trying to think of a name for him. Some British friends of mine (who have 2 dogs named after beer) suggested Guinness because he is a black brindle dog (hence, black and tan). They also said when he grows up and gets healthy, he'll be very stout. So Guinness it was. And they were definitely right about the stout part! He's 81 pounds now! Whenever someone asks his name they say, "How perfect!! He's the color of the beer and very stout!"


GUINNESS - Shetland Sheepdog

Our Guinness had such a fussy mom who wouldn't settle to let the pups eat.  The breeder was offered the advice to give her a little beer to make her relax.  They thought it was kind of funny and poured a tiny amount on a saucer which she lapped up and promptly laid down to let the pups nurse.  So I always tell people he was named Guinness because he was weaned on beer.  Guinness was born in Arizona, but we have moved to the south-east since then.  He's a wonderful agility-dog, does a little obedience and has "dabbled in flyball and herding".  He loves to play ball, do tricks and to tell the squirrels where they belong (outside the yard).  We call him our Wonder-sheltie and some have claimed his name could be spelled "Genius"!

GUINNEZ - Chow Mix

Guinnez is mostly a reddish golden color with an underlying coat of black, especially in his tail. He reminded us of our favorite Black & Tan. Guinnez was adopted about a year ago, in 2002, when he was less than a year old himself, from the animal shelter in Kalamazoo, Michigan, days away from euthanasia. Like most animals adopted through this route, he has an "attitude of gratitude" that makes him an adorable and fun, if at times playfully mischievous, pet. (When he makes a mess or chews up yet another slipper, however, we call him Guinnie Pig.) Since I, his mom, live in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but his dad lives on the other side of the state in Northville, Michigan, Guinnez has become a well traveled dog who never gets more excited than when it is time for another ride.  He has brought such joy to us, that he even inspired a poem... please see:
