Now that my kids are of a reasonable age, we've decided to adopt a dog from the Dhana Metta Rescue Society. I happened to meet a friend of a friend who is a trainer and foster parent and was listening to her tell stories of this young female that had been rescued from a life of permanent breeding. No abuse but just not given the loving environment a dog like this deserves.

Happy, trained, and incredibly friendly and calm around kids, we've gone through the initial visit, interviews, and home visits and will probably be taking ownership this weekend. We're still working on names (the trainer calls her "Daisy" but we might choose something else).

Good for you, adopting a rescue dog! She looks like a real sweetie, and that's a really charming portrait. Enjoy your new friend!

Thanks all; she's fitting right in with the kids and already enjoying the amount of attention she's getting (ball! frisbee! walks!).

A quick shot from this morning.
