Through the wonders of Facebook, Garrett saw a post about a family looking for a new home for their dog. We had been tossing around the idea of getting another dog and Garrett REALLY wanted a black lab. The family who owned her had a baby a few months ago and felt that they didn't have the time to give to her. She is already partially trained....knows how to sit and stay. She's house broken and crate trained to sleep in a crate at night. Perfect, right. So we went to meet her in Huntington Beach yesterday evening and ended up bringing her home last night.
Dodger has not been the most welcoming to Raven, but that's to be expected after this has been her family for 12 years. Last night it was all Dodger barking at Raven, today Raven is starting to fight back. Hopefully this will not last too long!! I hope that they become friends and can keep each other company while we're at work.
Stay tuned for some better pictures tomorrow. I am planning on taking her hiking tomorrow (steering clear of the tar pits). She took a 10 mile walk with me this morning and still had energy afterwards. Yay, I have a new running partner too!!
