Lizzie the wonder dog

Well folks, it's been a while since we updated anything. Many apologies.

As you all know, Carmen and I adopted a puppy about a month ago, Lizzie. There's a post about her down a ways when she's all sweet and cuddly and cute. Well, she's still sweet and cuddly and cute, but now she's over 25 pounds instead of 8. Carmen's very upset by this because it's hard for her to sit in her lap and sleep anymore. I, on the other hand, think it's the greatest thing in the world because 8 pound Lizzie couldn't do this.

And for those of you that want video, well we have that too.

As you can see, any doubt as to her lab heritage is officially gone. We headed down to the lake in our neighborhood this afternoon to see how Lizzie would do in the water. She was a little apprehensive at first, but then she found the world's most perfect fetch stick, and all doubts about the water were gone. When we left I had to physically carry her up to the trail to keep her from heading back in. After the success today, I'd say we're all but guaranteed to make many trips down there this summer.
