Brodie digs #3…Thomas Jefferson and his Buzzy

# 3 President of the USA…TJ…Thomas Jefferson…the renaissance man…true author of the Declaration of Independence…visionary of the manifest destiny of the coming United States of America…and who knew…there’s a dog in there…yeah…the French Briard Sheep Dog.

Big paws up TJ… After being introduced to the Briard breed while in France… Thomas walked the streets of La Havre to find a Briard ready to whelp…purchased her… naming her Buzzy.  Buzzy gave birth to two pups in the middle of their Atlantic crossing and there you have the beginnings of this beautiful, intelligent, fierce protector and strong french breed working dog introduced into America.

P.S. TJ also tried to rid his dogs of fleas through a flea prevention…infusion of bitter almonds into their daily diet of barley soaked in milk.  Those darn fleas!
