Outside of a dog --

One of my husband's favorite quotes is the Groucho Marx line

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read

Last weekend we took a step we'd been considering for a while.


Meet Quincy!!!



He was advertised as a Boston Mix, about 1 year old, and about 35 pounds.  We'll see how accurate the weight and age estimate are when he meets our vet next week.


While he is named for the neighborhood and John Quincy Adams, we are intending to pronounce it like the fruit (Quinsee) rather than be authentic and say Quinzy.


It's been a while since we've had a dog and there've been a few settling in snafu's so far.  We discovered he was tall enough to counter surf when we found him coming back for the 2nd loaf of bread. He's been exhibiting a bit of separation anxiety and climbed our chain link fence to look for my husband who was out of sight in the garage.  But we're hopeful that this will pass.
