Yes - we've adopted a new doggy!  Not that I 'needed' to replace Layla so quickly, but Buddy was waiting at the shelter and not handling the kennel too well. I spent some time with him there and felt he would fit in 'pretty' seamlessly to our household.  So, when Hurricane Irene came through, the shelter lost power and had to move most of the dogs and cats out to avoid disease, I took the opportunity to 'foster' Buddy for a few days to see how he would do at home.

He did quite well AND he came to Frank when Frank called him!! LOL.  So after about 5 days, Frank gave the nod to making him a full-fledged family member.  So, he became official yesterday.  He's a 6 year old boxer/pitbull/hound - a good ol' fashioned "MUTT"

Here are a few pictures of him getting VERY comfortable in the house:

And, posing with his two new sisters.

And, this hasn't turned into a 'dog' blog!  I am crafting, but I haven't taken pictures or back soon!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Awww, you guys are true angels! Big welcome to sweet Buddy! He's looking so very happy in these photos. :)
Love your new blog banner, too. The candy corn framework just makes me smile.

He is so cute and looks like he has a big old smile in the picture on his back. Seems like he blended quite well into the family. So happy for you and the family.
