A New Addition

We've been considering the possibility of getting a dog for the last several weeks, after losing 5 chickens in about a week's time. On Tuesday, thanks to some amazingly generous friends, we brought home a new addition to our family.

Juilin is a full-bred Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie). He's almost five months old, and has a very sweet disposition. Most of us have totally fallen for him, and Jonathan thinks he's pretty okay for a dog. His name is pronounced jew-linn; he's named after a "thief-catcher" in a series of books J and I enjoy. We're hoping he stops our chicken thief, though we doubt he'll "catch" him!

I was planning to tell you more about Juilin, but right now I think I need to go out and let him run around some. More later!

Oh, he is a truly handsome dog!
I hope Juilin is all you hope and more! Congrats to the happy family!

I'll bet my mom is going ga-ga over him!!!
And, well, he is pretty good-looking for a dog!

Juilin seems a perfect match for your family (although J. prefers cats =}). Glad the children like him and hope he stops your thief. He is very handsome.
