Do you have a fun story about your pet’s background? 

We found him at a shelter in Idaho - we said we weren’t going to get a dog for a while after our Sampson (another border collie) passed (only 7 yo) the year prior. My wife and my kids decided to adopt him during a week I was out of town. I pretended to be mad about it, but I was very happy that he came into our lives.

Any other fun things you want to share about your pet?

When Dipper wants attention he’ll sit in the middle of the living room and start huffing at me, when he does this his side-lips get stuck on his teeth and fold over into a derp face.
