We added a new member to our family today. She's 8 months old -- a German shepherd and labrador mix. She's really sweet, but a little skiddish. We are her third family, so she's been through a bit. With DH being home all day and our 1/2 acre fenced yard, I think we are the family she needs.
Wish I were good with the camera. She is a beautiful dog, especially when she runs in the sunlight. I'll try to get someone to take a picture so I can post it.
Natalie vacilated from being delighted to scared and back to delighted. I predict that they will get to know each other and be good friends within a week. My DD really likes the dog, so that helps. The dog knows her name, Kahlua. We toyed with changing the name, but I think the whole family has decided to keep it. There has been some talk about Madame Kahlua, but that may be over dramatic! She is definitely the biggest dog (50 pounds) I've ever had and has the most energy. She may enjoy running with me. We'll see.
