Update on Sable

Sable was a big hit at the last Petsmart Adopt-a-thon in September and I didn't get a chance to take her photo before she was adopted out but here's her update nonetheless:

I'm writing to update you on Sable, who we now call Mabel. We adopted her from the PetSmart Adoptathon in September. Several weeks before we had inquired about her when she was with Georgina Animal Control, but by the time we wrote them she had been adopted. Then we went to the adoptathon, met this beautiful and sweet dog and suddenly realized she was the same dog! Needless to say we think she was fated to be ours!

She's settling in beautifully and our Vet suspects that she's actually a Husky/Norwegian Elkhound cross and not Shepherd. Apparently her curled tail is making them lean in that direction. She's great with our kids and any other kids that come through our house (which happens often!). Our other dog Molly is playing the role of Mentor to Mabel and everything is running smoothly. She's going to grow into an amazing dog and we are thrilled to have her as part of our family.

That's our girl!!! I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this. Right now she's sleeping beside me as I type. We are thrilled to no end with her, she's is total love and delight, even when she's a being a classic crazy husky (as evidenced by the photo of her running!). She's settled right in and we count ourselves very lucky to share our lives with her.

Hi Erin, I luv that photo of Mabel leaning as she corners. It just looks like she's having a whole lotta fun.

Oh she is! Please also note the big pile of dirt surrounding my planter box. She had a good time digging that up too! I would say that if the sun is up then you can almost guarantee that she'll be in motion. Shortly I'm taking out for a giant romp in the hopes of wearing her out for 10 or 15 minutes! ;)
