Introducing Riley........

Just before Christmas, we found a great home for our foster dog, Pablo. He was the little black and white chihuahua we had for a few months. At the time that we got him adopted, we thought Delilah was pregnant. Thank goodness, it was a false pregnancy. Her body responded to her first heat by making it go through physical changes like she was pregnant, but actaully, she wasn't. Sorry Andrea, if you were hoping for a puppy, but we do plan on breeding her andFranklin when she gets a little older.

Anyway, we were waiting for Delilah to have her littler before we took in another foster dog, so when we found out for sure that she wasn't pregnant, I was jumping at the chance to foster another one.

Last night, I went to pick up our new foster baby. Her name is Riley. The lady we got her from said she was a schnauzer mix of some kind, but I don't see that in her at all. She is only 8 months old, so she has a lot of puppy in her. Franklin and Riley have been tearing through the house non-stop since I brought her home. I think it may have been love at first sight. She's a little bigger than the dogs we're used to having, but she's so gentle that it doesn't matter. The only thing we have to worry about is her big bushy tail brushing everything off of the coffee table.

Hopefully, she'll be going to her new "forever home" soon and I will have another happy tale to tell.

I learned real quick that she LOVES the snow!!!!

She looks like a lab mix. That tail isn't very lab-ish, but the face is!

OMG! She is so cool! I am going to have to come over and see her.

How sweet!

She looks like a black version of my dog too. She's a collie/? mix. They must have the ? in common! :)

You know, I could never take in other dogs here. My dog gets so mean and fights when we have others (at least females) over anymore. She's getting old, I guess.

And I was seriously thinking about those little doxie babies. Waaaaaa.
