A new addition

Well, so much for waiting another year before getting a dog. Yup, we did it. Took the plunge. Went to the local shelter and adopted a mutt.

Meet Cooper.
She's six months old (or so). A mix of dachshund and german shepard. Maybe. Probably. Could be some beagle in there too.

She hangs out with us while we're working and isn't afraid of the noise and movement.
Not shy around the tools
 She's perfectly willing to catch a nap on the porch while we chat.

That's actually the cat's bed
 She's quite fond of lookout rock.

Surveying her new domain
And thinks it's awesome to catch a few winks in the autumn sunlight.

We were nailing up boards right beside her
She's learning the standard obedience commands and has been enrolled in agility trial training too. She's already trekking with us in the woods so it should be a short jump to all the nifty obstacles in the ring. I'm sure you'll be seeing more photos of her for a long time to come.


  1. You mean that used to be the cat's bed.
    Love the red! ;)

  2. Thanks! We think the red is pretty awesome. And the dog has definitely taken over the house. They are starting to get along a bit better but the cat is still giving us the cold shoulder.
