Today Rose joined our family. She's a Rhodesian Ridgeback, Border Collie mix although she's missing the ridge on her back. So far she seems very playful and affectionate.
After much discussion around names the semi-finalists were Mutley and Rose with Rose being triumphant. The boys are delighted with Rose although Eli is far more taken with her than Joel who is quite scared of dogs. This was part of why we wanted a dog so Joel would get over his fear, but we know it will take time.
The big question now is; Who's going to pick us the poo in the garden? My guess is Dad will get the job. Deep joy!
Eli and Rose seem to have really taken to each other
