Joseph and I decided recently to adopt a puppy. This little rescue mutt arrived from northern BC for us today and needless to say we are smitten.
He's something of a German shepherd, husky, shar-pei and who knows what else, mix. So far he's gone to the back alley and on a short 15 minute walk through the neighbourhood. And slept. He's 2 months old. I expect to talk about him a lot in the near future. Sorry.
So far the cats are doing really well. Ruby seems to have no issues with dogs and has been around all of us all day. Mingus however is staying hidden in the bedroom for now (but we think he'll come around).
