A week ago, on Saturday, we adopted a dog from the Humane Society. Her name is PHOEBE.  She is four years old and a mix-breed of ChowChow and who knows what else. As you can see from the photos she is colored brown/black, has stubby ears, and expressive eyes. She weighs about 40 pounds and is just a little larger than our previous dog, Reba.

She appears to be house trained and walks well on leash. She likes people, but is not friendly toward other dogs at the present time. I will be getting help in getting her over her aggressiveness. We will enroll in some classes as soon as she recovers from kennel cough. 

On Thanksgiving Day she was subjected to a bath in our tub. That was quite the experience for her and me. I almost got as wet as Phoebe. She took it all pretty well though I had nothing to keep the bathtub bottom from being so slippery. The bath did wonders to her coat as well.

This is not fun

Drying Off
 We are looking forward to Phoebe being with us. She appears to be settling into her new home, and likes what she is experiencing.
