Our new baby, Shelby.... :-)

Yes, we took the plunge & visited the local pet shelter, knowing of course, that it is impossible to leave without rescuing someone.

If I could, I would bring home every single dog & cat that is left behind to spend their days locked in a cage, without love and without a home. It is one of the saddest things you'll ever see...

We had always intended to give an older dog their 'forever home' but somehow Shelby found us and we are now remembering the trials & tribulations of puppyhood & I have to say there are several!

So... meet our Shelby. She is about 3 months old & has created a great debate in our family as to what her ancestors may have been. The Shelter's vet is certain she is a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, but mixed with what is still a mystery.

You'll be seeing lots of her in the future, so I thought you all deserved a formal introduction.... :-)
