All of this is no doubt true -- but the one fact that comes blazing to the forefront is that this is one seriously adorable dog.
She is has a reserved personality, but is also very sweet. Murphy (who's never had much use for any dog that's come visiting us at Frogpond) fell instantly head-over-heels in love with her. Kiitch threw an orange float for all the dogs down at the pond, and Murphy was in heaven strutting his stuff and showing her how a real dog fetched. Isabella just smiled happily through her bangs and followed along.
Our boy's got it bad.
