Default So...I have a dog.

All I can say is, I'm an idiot.

My sister's friend of a friend was moving tonight and had been trying to find a home for this dog for a few months, with no takers. She couldn't have two dogs and was just going to leave this one behind. The mutual friend told my sister, who went and picked up the dog...without my parent's permission. She had no idea what she was going to do with this dog, so she got in contact with me...and I said I'd take it.

I reiterate, I am an idiot. LOL

So I am now the "owner" of a roughly year old, unspayed, "vaccinated" (but no records), about 50lb chocolate Lab mix. (She's 90% Lab, with either Pit Bull or GSP in the mix - she looks just like a typical byb field bred Lab with white toes and gold eyes. I've seen purebred Labs look less Labby than she does.) So far, she's doing great. A little anxious and whiney, but who wouldn't be - she's been uprooted from her home and toted around with me all evening.
What I do know about her: she is very friendly, has no manners, raids trash cans, is crate trained, "housebroken" (but hasn't peed outside for me yet), gets along fairly well with the rats and Dameon, ignored the kitties in at work, sleeps while she's in the car, pulls like she's a sled dog, likes to cuddle and give kisses, LOVES rawhide and chasing balls, thinks the bed is her bed, great about being handled, very food motivated, and likes to chew on shoes. She also smells like a dog. She was housed with another dog and a puppy and was also around their two year old kid without any issues.

Not really my black Lab male puppy...but we'll see. If she does well at my apartment, gets along well with Mike's three dogs (and Mike LOL), and is okay with my crazy schedule...she just might be staying. If not, at least I can get her into a good home.

I don't have a way to upload pictures currently, but I'll try to get a few up Tuesday night. And she needs a name. She came with the name Lucy, but she doesn't respond to it at all (and that was my Guinea Pigs name). So...any bright ideas for a girlie chocolate Lab?

I know, I would be helpful. Wait until Tuesday. LOL
