Today, Lila joined our family! She is 13 weeks old and simply adorable! So far she loves to chew on socks, shoe laces and my friend Lisa's high heels. Dan has already had her out on her first run—just one mile, but he's getting her ready for longer runs. He's thrilled to have a new running buddy after many years without one. Consuela was just too old and tired the last few years. She has been gone almost 11 months, and we felt ready to open our hearts and home to a new friend. Emily and Jake are really excited and already in love with her. We are debating changing her name, but I kind of like it since Lila is a character in Friday Night Lights, the only show the four of us watch together. My dad was calling her "Baby Dog" tonight, and we liked that too. Maybe Babe. I dunno. I'm sure we'll figure that out! And now, with no further ado, is LILA:
Isn't she so CUTE????
