Adding to the family...
I know, like I need something else to do, right? May I introduce you to Lena Blackberry. (Lena as in Ole and Lena. Silje came up with the Blackberry part.) She's 16 weeks old, and half black lab, half German Shepherd. She was part of her mother's first and only litter. Her mother's owners kept 2 of their favorite of the litter of 8, intending to make them their pets as well. But as life has it, they decided they weren't a 3 dog home after about 2 months, and the 2 puppies had to go. The add in Craigslist was posted yesterday, and when we arrived last night, Lena's sister had already been taken.
She was excited to meet us, but she cried (whined) the whole way home. I think she was really nervous. So far, we noticed she's excited to meet people, but overall she's an extremely calm dog. She loves being with us. She "cries" when she's alone. I can already tell that she learns extremely quickly. Although I'm a little jealous, because I think she's a little in love with Knut. Although he already complains about her, he loves the fact that the kids have to keep their toys picked up now. That, and you can see his eyes melt when he looks at her.
Well, if you live in chaos, what's a little more, eh?
