Our Little Irish Rose

I finally got our pictures of Red developed. Red was found late one cold night wandering on the highway. She has adapted pretty well and seems like a very intelligent dog. The only problem is her size. She's about 14 weeks old and is already 21 pounds. Ernie, our largest dog, is only 15 pounds and even he's a tad overweight. We're not sure exactly how large Red will get, because we aren't exactly sure what breed or breeds she is. You, the reader, can be the judge of that.

This is Red sitting with Ernie, our Rat Terrier. This is a pretty rare moment considering all he wants to do is mount her or avoid her. Dogs are so human-like.

This, on the other hand, is a pretty common occurrence. Dixie, our Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, and Red act like life-long friends. I just hope Red doesn't turn on Dixie when she hits puberty. Teenage girls can be so cruel.

Paws are a good indication of a dog's eventual size, and it looks like Red's gonna be a big girl.

Speaking of very cute animals and the witty commentary that accompanies them, have you seen this blog?

She is gonna be a big one. And no I haven't read that blog, but I will be sure to check it out.

you can actually send off a swab of her spit and they'll tell you her exact mix, if you are really interested.. ask your vet.

ps i love terriers, and with that said, red is a cutie

Yes, Red is a beaut'!
All three are adorable. I hope they don't have to take too much of a backseat if and when the human babies start coming along.
