We have company....the 4 legged kind. This is Abby. She's 3 years and absolutely adorable. Abby's mom is a senior citizen who severely broke her arm and needs to spend the next 3-4 weeks in a rehabiliation facility. So....Abby is staying with us until her mommy can take her back. She's such a little love.

I knew those black and tans were hairy...but oh my gosh!!! This has to be one of the hairest dogs I've ever seen. Her coat's a bit of a mess but luckily I have permission to take her to my groomer on Thursday to get some of the serious mats out (really bad ones behind her ears) and, most importantly....sanitary trim!! :oops: She's really a mess back there and will smell so much more pleasant once she gets cleaned up. I absolutely love my groomer and am thrilled she's making room for us this week.
She slept in her bed in an x-pen in the family room last and made not a single peep. She's such a happy little girl. Mom said she is very timid and unsure of other dogs...but you should have seen her with Jake and Shelby. Initially not so great....a big old scaredy poop right on the kitchen floor....but since then no problemo!

Miss Abby looks like a sweety. Hope her mum gets well soon. Miss Shelby seems a little miffed.;)

She looks awesome.. now the grooming and she'll be even more heartbreaking.. if her mommy sees her again make sure she doesn't fall over again of her stunning dog ;) she might hurt her arm again and we don't want that, do we? :)

What a little beauty, and how incredibly generous of you to look after her whilst her Momma is unable to! Can't wait until you post more :snap: of her after her visit to the groomer!!

As for the look young Shelby is giving her! :winkct: Meanwhile Jake seems to be saying "Mum that's a pretty weird Tri you bought home!" :lol:

I can't wait for Teddy to grow up, he's already getting quite a bit of coat, something so incredibly glamourous about the Black and Tan's in full coat eh? :luv: :luv:
