It has been over a year since Taylor died. We haven't been ready for another dog but every once in a while I've seen a dog that I thought about. Pictures of Carly (although that wasn't her name at the time) showed up on a local website from the Save a Mexican Mutt organization here in San Miguel. She looked cute but I let it ride for about two weeks. I thought that surely by that time someone would have adopted her. Still I wrote an email asking about her. No she had not been adopted. It took another couple of weeks of tenative questions on my part and a lot of talking between Ned and me. Are we ready for another dog and all the responsibility it would bring. SAMM brought Carly by for a visit. Another couple of days of thinking and then we said, yes. So yesterday Carly joined the family.
Carly was found in Queretaro, emaciated, matted and scared. She has had a couple of months of care and she is still really thin. SAMM thinks she is a cocker and poodle mix and that she is about 2 years old. I do think there is some poodle in there but not sure about the cocker part. She is smaller than Taylor was. At some point in her life she has been housebroken and leash trained. She is really a sweet quiet little companion.
