♣ VOTE FOR DUNCAN 18686 FOR DOTM ♣
Hi! My name is Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod and yes, I was named after the character in the Highland movies and TV series. I am a West Highland White Terrier, which is a breed that originated in Scotland and can be traced back to the time of King James I of England. I am running the month of March for the position of Dog of the Month (DOTM) and would appreciate it if you could stop by my page 18686 and vote for me daily or as often as you can. The dog with the most votes at the end of the month wins the contest. Now for a little bit about me: I am Sgt. At Arms and Park Manager of the Westie Club. Treasurer of the Terrier Club. A-Team Tug-O-War Master, a member of the Peace Team, DC Friendship Club, BPM and the DC Sports Club. I made DOTD on July 4,2008 and again on July 23, 2009. My nickname is SweetPea although dad sometimes calls me donkey like in the movie Shrek. My favorite games are tug-o-war and fetch, although I also like to play keep away. I am mom's constant companion and have learned to detect when mom's blood sugar is running low and alert her to the situation so that she can eat something right away. My theme this month is Irish Poetry with authentic poems. Today's song is The Girl I Love by John Boyle O' Reilly
The girl I love is comely, straight, and tall,
Down her white neck her auburn tresses fall;
Her dress is neat, her carriage light and free -
Here's a health to that charming maid, who'er she be!
The rose's blush but fades beside her cheek,
Her eyes are blue, her forehead pale and meek,
Her lips like cherries on a summer tree -
Here's a health to the charming maid, who'er she be!
When I go to the field no youth can lighter bound,
And I freely pay when the cheerful jug does round;
The barrel is full, but its heart we soon shall see -
Come, here's to that charming maid, who'er she be!
Had I the wealth that props the Saxon's reign,
Or the diamond crown that decks the King of Spain,
I'd yield them all if she kindly smiled on me
Here's a health to the maid I love, who'er she be!
Five pounds of gold for each lock of her hair I'd pay,
And five times five for my love one hour each day;
Her voice is more sweet than the thrush on its own green tree -
Then, my dear, may I drink a fond deep health to thee!
I have enjoyed visiting your page and hope that we can become friends after the contest is over. I left a vote for you today. Duncan
Come visit me, Duncan *Gone 5/22 - 5/29*
