Our New Puppy - Reese!
I've given up using 'social media' long ago. However, Jacqui's still on there, and in September of this year she saw a Facebook post from the Missouri City animal shelter for a German Shepherd puppy named Reeses. She looked almost identical to Paris at that age, and so I decided to go ahead and visit her at the shelter to see if she would be a good fit with our family. Well, she was the SWEETEST thing! So, Jacqui and Austin came back with me and they both agreed. The last step in our 'approval' process was to have Reese (we dropped the last 's') mix with Paris and see if they got along OK. Of course, Paris is a sweetheart too - so everything went as good.
It wasn't long after that we received the e-mail saying we've been approved to take her home - and on Monday, September 28, 2020 we picked her up and brought her to her new home.

The Missouri City Animal shelter took some cute pics!
Awwww, how could you not love that face??
She was bout 35 pounds when we got her - and she's gained at least 20 pounds since then,

It only took a few days before Paris and Reese became inseparable.
Our first trip to the dog park
While they love our house and the dog park - there's no place they love more than being able to run free at our ranch

Eventually they wear out, and just relax and watch for deer to chase.
Always on the lookout...

They've learned to ride in the Polaris too!

This is my favorite picture of them so far.
And you can see how much weight Reese has gained - she's almost as heavy as Paris now.
