I wish I could have paused time just a wee little bit, so that the itsy cute puppy phase could have lasted... We adopted her in August, she weighed 8 pounds.
Now she's a flying ball of energy and weighs closer to 50. Don't know what mix she's composed of, but Lab for sure as her paws are very webbed, and maybe Golden due to her colour, and perhaps Shepherd.

Next year's camping will be so much fun with a dog that likes the water - she's not a barker (thank goodness) but she will get so hyped up in the water that she'll shove her whole head underwater and bark like crazy. Sounds like an outboard motor.

I figure that all the laughing we do adds minutes onto our life - it's all a good thing.

Please - if anyone you know wants a dog - rescue a shelter dog. Gives great Karma points for starters, and they do make excellent companions.

She turned out to be a great looking dog- not that she wasn't as a puppy.

I'm a die hard cynic towards animals, maybe it's from being a dairy farmer.

Awesome that what you have done. My wife has been bugging me for a few years to get a pooch, I have been cringing everytime I see a poor suffering guy driving down the road and his wife hugging a da da da dog (sorry, I was stuttering).

So to preclude the above, I bought a dog!

One of these days, we're going to have to organize a pet boondock. A boondock so we don't have to worry about parks.

Good luck!

Both those kids are pretty darned cute, and that's a gorgeous babe parked in the driveway!
Thanks for the update.

Best Wishes to Lexi

It will be soon that Lexi has you wrapped around her paw and you will take her camping. Enjoy..

My dog was a rescue animal. Baity has been loved in my home for 6 years and counting.

jacarape - post some pictures of your new addition!

And Baity's a very nice-looking pup! It's all good, isn't it?...
