On Tuesday night, Lakesyde’s Have a Good Morning, whose call name is Aurora, came home to join our family. She was born on Martin Luther King’s birthday, meaning she’s eight weeks old. She’s named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, and we chose the name because she represents the dawn of a new day in our family. She weighs just over eight pounds, is adorable, and is cute and surprisingly funny for a very active puppy. Her picture appears here. For those of you who don’t know me, that’s me holding her. We will probably call her Rory.

The other dog in the picture is Nero, who is fourteen months old. Nero and Rory have a common grandfather and both came from the same breeder, so you can get a pretty good idea of what she will look like when she’s fully grown. He’s a good looking guy.

Augie, who’s nearly ten and a half years old, won’t have anything to do with her. It took about two weeks for him to accept Nero last year, so my guess is that will happen again here. Nero, on the other hand, either wants to play with her, or he’s busy being jealous that nobody’s paying attention to him. That’s to be expected, I guess.
