We Got A Dog!

And she is a cutie!

She's about three years old. They guess, based on her appearance, that she's a Beagle / Mini Aussie Shepard mix. She's a little taller than a beagle. And, although a lady never reveals her weight, I'll tell you that she's 25 lbs.

She came with the name Gracie Mae. The shelter told us they didn't know if they gave her that name or if she knows the name at all (she doesn't seem to), so feel free to change her name. We're trying to decide whether we want to keep the name or pick a new one. We're open to suggestions.

Prepare for dog photo overload!

First meeting at the Seattle Humane Society.

Look at those ears! They get me every time!

Saying hello!

In the car to go home. On the way home, we stopped at PetCo and bought the whole store: a crate, food, bowls, a harness, treats, toys, and more.

Say hi to the camera!

Pooped out, already? She seriously snored through the Giants game.

Those eyes! Those eyebrows! It looks like she's got a little taupe eye shadow going on! 

She already jumped up on the couch! 

And after a walk, she let herself into her crate.  Good girl.

So, name suggestions?  Some names we've thought of were Trixie, Scarlet, Hudson, and Jelly Bean. We both like Gracie Mae (it's not like we dislike it), although my husband would prefer to drop the Mae and leave it at Gracie. I guess being Southern, he's already tired of Mae.

  1. She's adorable! My vote is for Gracie or Gracie Mae. I'm biased; my dad's dog is named Gracie.
