We have a new member of the family.
A lot sooner than we planned.
She's 9 or 10 months old.
Part Kelpie, part Border Collie.
Failed sheepdog.
Now to become city dog.
Member of our household for 24 hours.
Name... ?

She and Scout are still sorting themselves out.
Unsettled night last night.
Not much sleep for anyone.

Scout doesn't like to share, so this is good for her.
Great playmates though.
This taken during a brief uneasy truce in which she desperately wanted to snuggle up to Scout who in turn grumpily condescended to share her blanket with her.

Oh Kelpie dog, you look like my Bails, even if you're different colors! Welcome to the family.

Harper? (Keeping with the Scout theme)

Love her matching orange eyebrows (or is it eyeshadow?)

I like Harper too.

I am sure she's not a failed sheepdog, she was just misdirected in her life calling. She kind of looks like she'll be a fabulous latte dog....

I'm with Alison! Poor hound. I bet she enjoys her new city lifestyle, although being the owner of a kelpie AND a border collie, plenty more walks (runs) are in store... Scamp?

Oh, I have such a weakness for dogs with eyebrows.

How about Newton? Isaac Newton had a failed attempt at a shepherding career before entering academia, I'm told. Clearly both were bound for other kinds of greatness. :)
