Last night we added somebody to our family... Meet Mya.
We finished the adoption process and brought her home last night. I've never brought home a dog that immediately was so friendly and comfortable in the house. We looked at a lot of dogs, but she was the winner. She's gentle with Oliver, she's not barky, she's house trained, she's a nice manageable size.. A good family dog.
The real test of excellence came when we were on the car ride home with her. We realized that Oliver hadn't had any dinner, so we stopped at Arby's and got him a roast beef sandwich. I handed him the sandwich and there sat Mya, watching every bite Oliver ate. But she didn't even try to steal it from him.
Nobody really knows what she is, but our best guess is that she's a beagle/corgi mix. She doesn't bark like a beagle or herd like a corgi, though, so who really knows. She's three years old, a surrender from a family that kept her outdoors all the time. I don't know how she has such a great personality after being tied up outside for that long, but she does.
Last night as we pulled into our driveway Oliver announced, "New house, Mya! Come on!"
