New Puppy

Our new puppy. We adopted her from New England Saint Bernard Rescue. Her name is Dakota. I didn't name her and they made me promise not to change her name because she knows her name. Not my favorite name but I love her. She is the sweetest puppy (5 months old, check out those paws).

No knitting. Still cleaning up the house. Promise to post pictures of the new place soon.

Gorgeous puppy! I know you'll have lots of fun with her. Is she housebroken? Does she know any commands, such as sit, stay, etc. yet? I can hardly wait to see photos of your new home.

what a gorgeous baby! i agree it is nice to keep their 'given' names but maybe Cody would make a fair nickname?

no matter what, happy happy puppy days!!!!!!!

More puppy photos, please…I'm sure there's an album full by now. I miss you,Ms. Yarn, but…but that freckled snoz in a flickr slideshow would help ease the loss.

Your puppy is bigger than my adult dog. And you puppy is only going to get bigger. And you live where there are cold winters. So are enormous dog sweaters in your future??! hahaha

Glad to hear you are getting settled in there.

Yay! I used to know a very nice horse named Dakota in Germany. Does that help?

She's a cutie for sure.
