The day after thanksgiving we were minding our own business when a friend of my dh called us. He was wondering how serious we were about not getting another dog (our dog Skittles recently died and we decided no more dogs). Well that plan is dust. My dh's friend knew someone who could no longer keep their dog and would be taking it to a shelter if no one took her. We were his last resort. She is a 1.5 year old great perenese. I couldn't let that happen so now we will be getting a new member of our family on Sunday. Her name is Katie and I am hoping she will enjoy camping with us. Great Perenese are dogs that are used to protect livestock, so they tend to wander. I'm hoping we can train her to stay close and not wander off.
