After we lost Dahlia in August, we could see that Ben was pretty unhappy. We always knew that we'd probably have to get a new dog pretty quickly because he really craves canine companionship. We had my mom's puppy come over and friends bring over their dogs, but it's not quite the same. So I started glancing through Petfinder and had contacted a herding dog rescue (the rescue we got Ben from has gone to only senior dogs, so that was a no go).

And then a friend contacted me. She's had this Border Collie who she felt wasn't getting what she wanted in her home. She's a very soft dog and so not the type of dog she really enjoys training. And she really loves playing with other dogs, but none of her dogs want to play. She had been contemplating trying to find a home that she felt she'd happier in. And so when I posted a couple dogs I was considering as friends for Ben, she contacted me about her.

Long story short, we brought Lea home last Saturday. She's 2 1/2 (birth date 2/24/17) and came from an amazing breeder who was gracious enough to let my friend rehome her with me (she had already been returned to the breeder once for being too soft and not having enough drive). And so far we are ALL in love with her, including Ben (who I have such a hard time thinking of as "the older dog"). Ben is such an easy going boy that he just accepted her into the home without batting an eyelash. They walk together beautifully, they play together beautifully, they'll even lick the same spoon together. And we've had her less than a week. It's like she's always been here.

And of course, there were pictures...LOTS of pictures!

This is the lovely Lea:

Ben is clearly THRILLED! (looking WAY older than his 5 1/2 to 6 years! Geez!)

Gotta roll!

Lea found one of Ben's 18 gazillion toys.

There was LOTS of running!

And plenty of mad teeth!

Ben looks so massive here! He's about 43 lbs of muscle and fluff. She's only about 32 lbs. She's so TEENY.

And that was just the first day! I'll post some photos from the second day in the next post because there are so so many!
