There's a new dog in town
Long-time readers of Roundtop Ruminations may remember that my beloved Dog died last spring. Baby Dog and I became a one-dog household. Until yesterday, when a new “baby dog” arrived at Carolyn’s cabin.
His name is Skye and he’s a Shetland Sheepdog. Still only 5 lbs and 8 weeks old, his small size is taking some getting used to. During Dog’s last months, I had to use a ramp and a sling to get him up and down the 5 steps at the cabin, and at 60 lbs. that was quite a chore for me. I decided then that my next dog would be smaller. At the moment Skye is smaller than the cats. That won’t last. I’m sure the cats are hoping it will.
