We have a new foster puppy for Christmas.
Ripley is a four-month-old, purebred Border collie, and the resident cats and dogs have informed me that he is NOT the present they envisioned for Christmas.
They cannot believe I brought home a puppy that will compete with them for attention, and a puppy that has to learn about proper dog-to-dog behavior.
But they are good sports. They realize that all critters appreciate having a home for Christmas... even if it is a temporary one.
The first photo is of Ripley. Hopefully I'll get better photos in the coming days.
The second photo is of Dewey, who likes to believe he's king of the household.
