Oh, I so think we need a couple of these.

Bones, bones, bones

New dog Ruby (the name that stuck) has been going around collecting all of the rawhide chews and bones that Caden has forgotten. Tonight she found one upstairs and went tiptoeing out of the room with it, as if not quite sure that it was ok for her to have it. She went into her crate with the bone, which means she remembers last night's lesson (i.e., that the crate is the safe place for her to bring her chew toys).

The tiptoe act was very funny. I know, easily amused, here...

New dog - name TBD

We picked our new dog up today from the rescue -- her name was Sapphire, but I'm not wild about that name. We haven't decided on a new name yet. She's very thin -- needs to put on a little weight. I think she might have whelped recently. We'll need to take her to the vet to have some stitches removed soon. She looks like a little fox -- reddish coloring, lighter underneath, with a white patch on her chest. She's still a bit timid but keeps putting her paw out for more petting and is beginning to relax a bit.
