A dog's tale

We have a new member in the family. He wandered into our yard a couple weeks ago and made his uncollared self at home. We posted "Lost Dog" signs around the neighborhood, took him to the vet to check for a microchip, checked "Lost and Found" ads in the paper, and asked everyone we met during our evening walks if he looked familiar. No luck.

This "little" guy is only about four months old and he weighs 45 pounds. His paws look as big as saucers, and his tail wags so vigorously, his whole butt rocks. The lady at the vet's guesses he's part Border Collie (smart) and Great Pyrenees (steadfast and gentle, you know, like Belle in the "Belle and Sebastian" cartoon.) Personally, I think he's part Mole (digger.)

We've named him, just so we don't keep hollering, "Hey you!" I guess he's ours now ... as long as he doesn't tunnel out.

Ron,
how strange....my blog is named in part for a black and white border collie.
You're making it sound like this one is now a permanent part of your household.

Oops, wasn't quite ready to submit that last....

What a great addition to your family. It looks like the feline member isn't too sure, yet though.

Best of luck to all of you!

Won't be long before JP and Jasper are best friends. Bet you'll get a photo of them napping together. Nice that he's a puppy so kitty will stomp him into submission quickly, even though there is a bit of a size difference! Glad he found you, obviously he knew just where he was going when he moved in with you!!
