We got a dog today.

She is not a very picture tolerating dog.  Every time I get the camera out and point it at her, she walks towards me.  So these are the only pictures I have right now.

Her name is Trixie.  She came with that name though and I am lobbying to try and change it.  So far I like Lucy best.  Everyone is on board with Lucy, except for Alexandra, who insists that Trixie is the name she MUST have.

She is a Shar Pei Lab mix.  We adopted her from the SPCA and so far (6 hours in), she's been really really good.  I haven't heard her bark yet, so I think that's a good sign.  She found Quinn about 3 minutes after she came in the house; I heard a very loud HISS and he's been in the basement since.  Poor Quinn.

I am sure there will be more Trixie/Lucy stories as the days/months/years go by; she's only about a year old so she should be with us for a good long time.

Welcome Trixie/Lucy!!  And in the words of Elizabeth:  "It's super fun having a dog".

Congrats on the dog! We got a rescue dog last August and absolutely adore him. He is the sweetest, most gentle, loyal dog. He didn't bark for the first couple of months that we had him but once he was used to staying with us and realized he wasn't going anywhere he started barking and hasn't stopped since. Hahahaha

My dog poses for the camera though. Literally. I was taking photos of him today and he sits and smiles for the camera. It's so funny.
