Meet Marley

No not named for the new dog movie out but a horror flick (we're weirdos) "I Am Legend". In that movie Wil Smith's character has a daughter named Marley (named after Bob Marley) and besides Gage was named after a character in Pet Semetary (told you we're weirdos). Therefore, we all agreed on Marley. This is our new protector. Since our poor Brownie never returned after disappearing while we were in the hospital w/Gage last month, we had to find a good dog to help make the children aware of dangers that lurk outside, like other predators, cars, strangers!
The kids are in love with this new puppy. I have to tell you that a wonderful lady named Sabrina who breeds dogs here in Alabama, contacted me after she read my last dog post. She wanted to give us a full blooded German Shepard w/papers. We were so excited and couldn't wait but last minute we decided to pass on her generous offer. We just weren't sure that a German Shepard would be our best match and afraid it may actually attack one of the kids should they get into a fight outside or something. So we went to a local shelter and adopted Marley. Hope he likes us. He looks almost like our last dog which was a yellow lab, this one is a Golden Retriever mix. Very cute.

oh very cute! I have had pure bred German Shepherds in the past, in fact this is what we had when A was born, two of them in fact - gorgeous dogs.

However both my current dogs are "pound puppies" and they are lovely dogs too - people will always buy pure bred Shepherds but they might not adopt the mutt from the local shelter, so good on you guys!

Yay for Marley! I got a chuckle out of your naming strategy- too funny! Hope Gage's surgery goes as easily as possible on the 2nd. Keep us updated!
