New edition...

...on New Year's Eve! Meet Sasha...a present for the family - the kids adore her and the dogs, even Ally, who just turned 15 this Christmas day (she is a Christmas baby). I have never seen her as considerate towards a new entry into the house...she usually has this face of disgust but she has been very cool about it. Jesse, in the pic here, is just happy she may have someone to play with. Ella, the baby previously, is probably the least thrilled. She is in the growling phase to establish her position. Sasha just blows her off. hahaha- she is a love bug and will be quite large when full grown. Here she strikes her "wolf" pose butshe is part Great Pyranees (her father was over 120 lbs) and has an Australian Shepherd mother. I don't know how big she will get but I would guess somewhere over 55 and under 80? I am flexible, bigger the better but it's all good. Not sure if her ears will go up yet or not as they are small enough that they might...really just waiting to see how large her feet get so we can get an idea.
We had house guests up until today and we were laughing about checking bags on the way out to ensure no one snuck the pup in. She's been awesome with potty training, kennel training, and even getting used to the leash.
Chloe already knows and calls her name. Grayson just pets her gently saying "nice" which is him repeating after us...not so the dog is nice but that he is, of course...the little gorilla he is, lol.
