Shvedi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shvedi
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Shepherd mix
Home: Jerusalem, Israel
   Shvedi is a 12 year old shepherd (a mix of Belgian & German) dog. He is a special breed - a soul of a lamb in a body of a wolf. He is a very gentle dog. He likes people, especially kids, and he is sure that all the creatures were made by God only for him - to play. My friend described him the other day as a "12 year old puppy."

    He likes water in all forms - rain, snow, lakes, streams, sea - and even having a bath (in the yard with the irrigation pipe). He is crazy about snow, but here he enjoys it only about once in five years, since real snow is a rare phenomenon in Jerusalem. As you can see - this year he is lucky enough to have as much fun as he pleases. He also likes to collect huge branches in the woods and walks long distance with a little tree in his mouth.

    Shvedi is in good shape for a 12 year old shepherd, and I hope to enjoy his company in years to come.
