New Black Dogs

Two new black dogs here.

One temporary:

Spike is the youngest NESR foster I've had. He needs work on becoming bolder with strange people, and overcoming some mild hand-shyness, but is overall a pretty neat pup. We think he was born around November 10.

He's confident about strange places and strange dogs, independent, and able to put a dent on the dog-food bills with mouse hunting in the hayfield. Very quick learner.

I think he'd make a good farm dog. He'll need an animal-savvy owner who doesn't sweat the small stuff.

One permanent:

I saw this guy at this local gallery, and he wouldn't leave me alone. Can't get a photo that does the piece credit.

My slightly-less-ornery half knows better than to throw away money on marked-up-in-February vegetation or De Beers' artificially price-inflated poorly-worked bling-bling. So he brought this home instead.

The artist is also local, his website doesn't seem to be working correctly at the moment.
