And we shall call him...

Lucy's new buddy, who came to us today

Lucy at about 5 weeks (2003)
... well, we're not sure yet. Dad and the kids found him cowering under Dad's car this morning; a neighbor said someone dumped him and some siblings (who I haven't seen yet; another neighbor might have taken them in) on our street last night. And then Dad made the mistake of bringing the little dude into the house to show me how cute he was... so he's ours now. I've been wanting a buddy for Lucy for a while, and she seems eager to play with him, but of course the cats hate his guts and are surely plotting revenge. I'm guessing he's the typical Magdalena Mutt blend of cattle dog, shepherd, pitbull, labrador... He looks a LOT like Lucy did at this age (that's her in the photo at right, the day we got her) and has big feet, so I'm guessing we've got ourselves another big happy dog.

So, what shall we name him?

He is so adorable! Yes, going to be a big dog, but look at that love, Hope you update us on his life with you. Thank you for caring, so many dumped pets these days. I have three right now. A 14 yr old corgi, and 2 shelties. ALmost all my dogs come to me because someone else did not want them. My old corgi was one we bought as a puppy tho.

Oh, he's adorable. He reminds me of my sister's late Red Dog. She thought he might be part pitbull, but he was the sweetest sappiest thing ever.

This one, well, he's brown, and he'll be joining Lucy, so... maybe Charlie? Or Linus. Or better yet--Schroeder. Either way, he's a lucky dog.
