We picked up a new family member yesterday. Captian is the German Shepard on the right, we adopted him from the county animal shelter yesterday. Here he's laying in the back of my car with Sitka our Norwegian Elk Hound.

Yes and no. They're laid back and friendly, but if they're outdoors, you have to keep them on a leash as all times, or they will follow their noses right into traffic. They can be smart little doggies in some ways (Birch is already house trained and tends to leave food that yours alone unless offered... With exceptions. See below with my answer to Greatshot.) But in other ways... They're really fucking dumb. He's totally welciomng and friendly to all humans, but he goes barky ballistic with all other dogs. I mean, including a pug that barked at him. A frickin' pug that he could probably not register as another dog in certain lights. And another night, we woke us up with massive barking...
...He was flipping out over the laundry basket. The same laundry basket that's been right by his bed for the last three weeks.
He's a shithead. He's lucky I didn't name him shithead.

And I totally misread Mach's post as "I adopted a bagel" at first.
Well, he DOES love bagels. Like crack addict living of bagels. Today I was eating one, and I offered him a small chunk. He ate and loved it. And then later on, I offered another small chunk. He jumped up and grabbed the entire rest of the bagel from me. First time he ever grabbed food from us like that.

The black one is Shadow. He's my girlfriend's cat that moved in along with her. He's kind of an asshole. He only cares about me when it's time for his dinner, so about 2 hours before his dinner time he'll come and start yelling in my face.
The other one is my cat, Berry. She's just short of two years old. She's a cuddly bundle of joy who loves everybody. Only problem with her is she's mixed from a high energy breed, so she loves to run and play a lot. She can wear out everyone in the house, especially Shadow.
Greatshot: Yeah, transplant from Arkansas, moved here for work. Recognized the hat, chatted football for a bit. Totally would have asked for her number if I wasn't at work, but hitting on customers is never a good look.
