big news...

Before I go into the epicness that was this weekend, we've got some big news:
We adopted a dog!

This is Daisy. She's a 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog (or Queensland Heeler, depending on who you ask), and she's completely stolen our hearts.

 

We met Daisy last week at the Santa Barbara Animal Shelter and fell in love. When all the other dogs were barking and jumping at us when we walked by the kennel, she sat calmly and watched us. Um, let's meet her, absolutely.


She was such a sweetheart! We could tell that she'd been hit around by previous owners because she sort of cowered before we would pet her, but she was so eager to please and kept checking in with us while she was playing in the visitation yard.  We visited a few days in a row to see how she interacted with us, and by the end of the second day we decided that she would be coming home with us.


We picked her up today and spent Tim's lunch break at the beach.



I had to take the car to the mechanic while Tim was at work, so Daisy and I took advantage of the long walk to get some more beach and park time. 

 
We are pretty smitten with her
