and then there were 4

we added a family member this week.  sherry's sister had been fostering a dog in Birmingham Alabama for an animal shelter.  she told us about Lilly and after much prayer, discussion, worry, discussion (we talk a lot), and excitement we decided to adopt her (the dog, not sherry's sister...Dacy already has a family).  Lilly is an 18 month-old Kelpie - an Australian cattle dog.  how could we say no?  she just weaned her litter of 9 pups and has been spade so there's no more of that business.  she is house trained and a very sweet natured puppy - and hardly sheds any hair (very important).  isaac is over the moon and we can't help but love her too.  here she is enjoying the warm Fall sunshine today.

Is it me, or do Isaac and Lilly have the same expression on their faces in that last pic?

Those are great pictures of Lilly! She looks so content in your backyard! We know she's going to give and get lots of love there.

Keaton is Maryellen's made up name so it didn't tell you Dacy made that comment
