Celebrating individual Bouviers who reached 12 years young and beyond.

These character collage sections,
Also known as mug shot collections;
Illustrates the common Bouvs/human connection,
One of deeply felt love, respect and affection.

Through the following pages you will meet
The cream of the crop of the companion elite,
The top of the heap in so many ways, no other breed can meet
The challenge of versatile traits found on the Bouvier beat!

This dog can cart, retrieve, track, and be an alert grumbler;
He can herd ducks, sheep, cattle and people with nary a blunder.
Purchases and Rescues alike, all Bouvs have their human’s number.
Thinking of our bearded friends, we feel humbler.

All too soon our beloved Bouviers, although still in our heart and soul,
No longer are to be seen dipping their beards in the water bowl.
Their passing leaves a bottomless hole. We wish they wouldn’t go,
But know they guard us still with wings aflutter and halos aglow.
