We got puppies!!! So far, no one who I've told about the pups has EVER heard of the breed - haha! They are maremma sheep dogs - a brother and sister pair from NC that, quoting my dad, bring so much joy to each day. They've been here 9 days and we are all smitten.
They are go-go-go. They are into everything, and they fight constantly (unless they are sleeping, which they seem to do a lot of). They forgive and forget faster than any other brother and sister I've ever known - Pretty sweet to witness.
