Meet...um, the puppy. She doesn't have a name yet. She's 8-ish months old, and a right ol' mutt. We'd talked about getting a pitbull, or a lab, or (in my dreams) a greyhound or great dane. Our home is small, though, and in the end this little beauty won our hearts. The kind ladies at the shelter said she's some kind of border collie, or heeler, or Australian cattle dog mix. Who knows. We think she's pretty.
The last half of today was spent hurriedly putting in fence posts, and tomorrow will bring the actual fence and gate. If you have any good names floating around in your name-bank, let us know. Right now we just call her Good Girl.
