meet and greet
Meet our new dog! We adopted her from the Humane Shelter yesterday, and she's already keeping us very busy. She is a 2-year-old black lab who loves to fetch. Right now she specializes in tennis balls, but we'll see about adding discs to her repertoire. But first, we'll spend the next few weeks getting in the rhythm of walkings and feedings and poopings, and before long she'll be all settled and used to us as well!
Our dog came with the name Claire, but we're working on learning her personality so we can find a name we like a little better. Any suggestions? I want something either Ultimate, beer, or Japanese-related, but we're leaning away from people names and toward a maximum of two syllables. Sam says I'm making it too complicated. His suggestion: Mildred, shortened to Millie. I have a day or two to find an alternative, or Millie it is. (I make exceptions for older, less popular people names.)
