New team member

Gali (named Gallantly Streaming by her breeder, Tish, because she was born on July 4th, but slightly renamed by the boys to have a Bionicle meaning) has joined us as of August 22nd. She is a little over 7 weeks old, and ideally, we would have picked her up on August 29th, but it wouldn't have worked out.

She is an English Shepherd who is to guard the boys and the livestock. She is a smart little thing, who, even at the young age of 7weeks, could hold it in the car and tell us when she needs to go to potty.

But, I am sleep deprived! As with kids, I enjoy the older stage so much more and can't wait until she's older and more mature...even though puppies are darned cute.
