Sweet Sarah

Our new baby has arrived. Sarah is a rescue dog from Polaris Alaskan Malamute Rescue here in Colorado (see my links). She arrived yesterday about 2p.m.

Sarah--in spite of her somewhat menacing appearance in this photo--is a very, very sweet little girl who knows several commands, loves to play tug-of-war and chase a tennis ball over and over and over... She prefers to stay outside.

The Polaris rep I've been dealing with reports that Sarah was born in Alaska (a real native Alaskan!), purchased from a breeder and then, when she became so large that she (not intentionally) knocked down small children, was given to another family. That family moved to Colorado and, sadly--being a military family--the daddy has been ordered to Iraq. So, we are her third family in the five short years of her life.

She is a happy, loving, gentle soul who will have a good (admittedly pampered) life with David and me.

More pics to follow.

She obviously must be a good soul since she's been sent to you for safe-keeping!

May you love one another.
Life is so short. Live it well!

Thanks, Jeffrey. She's an easy one to bond with. Quite laidback compared to Sweet Melissa.
