But it's been busier than that around here. Last weekend we added a new addition to our household. A big fellow--though he still has some weight to put on--by the name of Gunnar.
He is a very kind dog. He eventually won Freki over (who had no intention of allowing a strange dog near her family) by ignoring her tantrum and showing a liking for the swimming pool, balls and a good romp.
Ben thinks he can run with Freki and Gunnar, though his short legs aren't quite up to the job. Of course, Dixie just ignores him. And Gunnar and Angus, the cat, get along just fine.
And, for those who are interested, Gunnar is the Norse word for 'warrior', as well as being a good German name. :-)
