Our new dog . . . probably

It's pretty much certain that we are adopting the dog in the pictures below. She is approximately 1-2 years old and is a fairly decent size - 50ish pounds I'd estimate. Her name is Lucy and she is likely some kind of Shepherd, Chow and large terrier cross - a true Heinz 57 either way. Her ears are quite cute in that they are "curled."

We first met her a few weeks ago at an adoption event and she was very well-behaved amongst a crowd of dogs and kids. On Saturday we had her for about 5 hours and she was great - she took to the house fairly well, enjoyed herself outside, asked to be let out to do her business, was good on a walk and was good in the car. She was very friendly with all three Fringers. She seems gentle and even tempered, but of course we will have to be very vigilant about supervision with her and D Jr. . . which has certainly been our biggest concern about introducing a new dog to our family!

Anyway, that is the latest canine update. We may get her as early as Wednesday or Thursday!
