I had hoped t' post about this sooner, but several weeks ago, we got a dog. His name is Spirit, and he’s a border collie mix. Shiver me timbers! We’re not sure what th' mix part is, but I were bein' wonderin' if he might have some setter in that scurvey dog. The ornery cuss’s about 16 months auld, and weighs aroun' 55 pounds. The ornery cuss’s had some trainin' already, and is pretty good about obeyin' a ‘sit’ command most o' th' time. The ornery cuss’s been great with th' minnows, and he loves it when Mary takes that scurvey dog out t' play after school.
