We have written here before about our thoughts on purchasing another dog. Alex, our collie is getting on in years, and we wanted to get a puppy into the house while Alex was still active enough to help train him. We also thought that having a younger dog around might keep Alex a little more active. We were going to go to some of the dog shows and start looking at the dogs that the various breeders might have had available. Of course, things have a way of working out differently than we plan.
Today we were going to the store (to buy birdseed, of all things) when we saw a little pavilion set up with a rescued pet adoption agency. They had a somewhat skinny, underfed but bright eyed collie named Maverick up for adoption.
Here is a picture of the two of them. Alex is on the left, and Maverick is on the right.
Here is another picture. Maverick is on the left, and Alex is on the right.
Now we have to blend our new family member into our family. This will be interesting. More to follow.
