I drove down I-81 today to pick up Daisy. Her mother is a bloodhound and her father is the neighbors' lab, and that's pretty much what she looks like.
Nice, nice girl, very soft, sweet, obviously a little shaken up and scared. She met Gigi and our household dogs and will join the indoor pack. She crated well this evening even though it was probably her first time ever in a crate.
She learned the stairs, crate, and leash today. I think they were all pretty much new to her. She was given up by a young man who was moving in with his girl friend to an apartment that only allowed one dog and she already had two. Seems that a new place to live would have been in order, but who am I to say. I suspect he was thinking with his little head rather than his big head.
At any rate, his loss will be someone's lucky gain. Daisy is a nice girl. She was a year old in March, housetrained, good with other dogs, small ones even, and even cats! Her coat looks like a basic chocolate lab from a distance, but up close it is soft, silky, and quite varied in color. She is striking.
