This is "Lisa," a three-month-old German Shepherd Dog:
The Hubby and I went to a Boxing Day party last weekend, and it was all I could do to talk to the adults there, like a grown person is supposed to. I just wanted to hang out with Lisa.
And hold her enormous paws:
Lisa was tired out from a day full of playing, so she was quiet and very sweet, even with the party's smaller guests.
About a nanosecond after The Hubby took this photo, below, Lisa forgot her manners and nipped me on the chin.
Ow! Puppy teeth!
I've raised a puppy: it was a hard, frustrating year. (Mine had some medical and behavioral issues.) I don't want that experience again, ever.
But visiting one is sort of fun!
