The sign said he was a Pointer x Border Collie, but we were later told he was probably a Lab x Border Collie, or maybe something else. They found him on the street and your guess is as good as theirs. In fact, they found him on our street.
We went to the shelter today just to look at him. We played with him in the room for playing with dogs. We took him for a walk. He likes to play fetch. He likes the kids. The kids like him. He's cute. He's calm for a puppy.
Adam would want to adopt any dog he saw, ditto for the kids, so it was all up to me to be the grown-up and make the big decisions. I asked the shelter worker if they would hold him for twenty-four hours so I could think about it. "No." So we took him right then and there. It was too late anyway. He already felt like part of the family.
