Meet our newest baby!

This past week we adopted a new pup from a military family that were being transferred to Germany. They were unable to take their 4 1/2 month old border collie with them, so we helped them out by making him a part of our crazy household. He is a red and white border collie, which is a color you don't see very often. He is very timid, but extremely smart. I have already taught him sit and down, in just a couple of tries. His name is Copper.

He and Max are best buds. Max, our Brittany spaniel will be a year old in August and is very hyper and energetic. He loves other dogs (I think even more than us) and spends all day running up and down the fence between us and our neighbor's yard. They have a white German Shepherd and a little white dog that runs the fence too. We knew Max would love another dog to expend his energy with and he loves it. They wrestle and play constantly.

What a cutie! He looks a little like Kathy's dog. I'm sure Max adores him. That will be good for both of them.

Wow, all you need a llama now for the petting zoo to be complete! :) haha Looking forward to meeting your new creature. I've always heard border collie's are the smartest! You'll have to teach it more than just sitting. Maybe juggle dog bones or jump through a ring of fire.
