Various and Sundry  
Upon return from ConClave, I found a new dog in the house. Now, ladyat says she told me all about this stray we were taking in, but all I remember is her talking to the person who found it on the phone and not saying anything about the specific "we" (meaning she and I) handling it. Whatever.

He's a very light brown and white beagle crossbreed. It won't be too easy to figure out the rest until he fills out a bit, but the current guesses are some Jack Russell or some pit bull (some of the head shape, but not completely). He's longer than you would expect from either breed, and with the current state of thinness it suggests a whippet or some other running dog (though I expect that to go away after he's been fed up a bit).

The finders bathed him and I am going to get him to the vet for shots pretty soon. Right now, he is learning to deal with the other dogs (Lucy is being very aggressive and then flirting with him shamelessly, and Neelix figures as long as he can intimidate a dog twice his size he's going to do it). He's being crate trained and back yard trained as well.

K. named him "Jack", so I think we're in trouble.

Remember some time ago I said that we don't usually find dogs, they just sort of come into our lives? QED.

And, in my memeage for today, I got 100% on this:

So "Stray Dog Man" is a bit autobiographical?
