I'm getting ready for work so will go through all the replies again soon as I an. Thanks so much for all the great tips!

Patti: According to the shelter she came from a multiple dog home.

Kathy: Yes, that's her smile

I'm hoping like heck that she's just blowing her coat and nobody brushed her and she doesn't have some horrible tumor problem or something.

My friend had a blind dog and my Massie was normally fine with other dogs but my friends' dog walked over her a couple of times and Massie got very ticked off and yelled at him. She did not understand that he was blind and thought he was being really rude about her space. I would watch out for things like that. Keep her leashed to you or give her her own space, especially if Riley can sometimes be reactive. You want to make things very, very safe for her and for your other dogs too.

Coming in a little late to commend you and your family for really helping those in need.

We often say how lucky a dog is to find that adoptive home-but this girl hit the mega-lottery (or whatever it's called).

I know that you'll take care of everybody.

great job,

Mary Jane
