We love our dogs!

Meet Nala and Ruby.

Ruby is our baby. At just a year old, she still chews just about anything, including Nala's ears, swim goggles abandoned at the side of the pool, and fruit that falls from the trees. She is a German Shorthair, and, true to her breed and age, is a bit more reserved and willing to be bossed around by other dogs. When she wants attention, she will rest her head on your arm and just look at you. She's a sweetheart.

Nala is our three year-old Yellow Labrador Retreiver. She is the most affectionate dog we've ever had. A great swimmer and hunter, Nala even talks to us with a series of grunts and gasps. It is hysterical! She also smiles constantly and is always ready to pose for pictures. Nala has a thing for birds and is always ready for a game of fetch.

We have daughter and son-in-law and their springador (springer/labrador cross - now a breed of their own it seems) staying with us and our retriever. Ours is very old; theirs is 9 months. Joyous!

Do they get along well? We mixed a young dog with an older one before and the results were not good.

Yes, they get along fine. I'm going to post about them on my blog later today with a photo, I hope.
