Despite my continued assertions that "I'm not a dog person," I am now the proud owner of Doxie. Don't get me wrong - I like dogs. I like all things cute and furry. I just like other people's dogs. They're a lot of work - and needier than my kids (which is saying a lot!) Besides, I'm allergic.
But when our friends who foster rescue dogs brough Doxie over to visit, we loved her. So - we adopted her and she's ours. I think she's a border collie/australian shepherd mix. She's smart and energetic, but well-behaved for the most part. She's also incredibly difficult to photograph because she moves all the time. Ben's finishing the fence as I type, so that we have a way to keep her in the yard while we're at work.
The kids love her too.
Here, the black-and-white dog meets the black-and-white cat. Just in case you're wondering, they're not friends.
