these are the dogs i've been living with the past week...
taylor-the only boy, and the old, wise one of the group. he has a sweet spirit.
fargo-she's spunky. she always barks when it's time to go outside, and if you tell her to go get the mail, she will walk to the mailbox and wait for you, then walk right back to the house...that's a smart one!
dakota-she is the protector of the bunch. she is very territorial, and growled at me one time when i tried to lay in the bed (she was laying where i wanted to be)...very well behaved otherwise, though!
hershey-she's the baby, and a hurricane katrina rescue dog. she is definitely still a puppy (likes to play and jump)...she is the only one that stays in a kennel during the day, and she's really good about it. you just tell her "go get in your bed" and in she goes, no fuss!
