@boomerang,
That first photo would make a great poster for Mo's bedroom or school locker.

I have some really cute photos of the two of them together but he doesn't like me posting his photos anymore.

That's ok. I'm glad that Mo is cautious. How did the old pack take Mo's decision?

She IS good looking, isn't she.

I called the last owners today and things have settled down. Dad said he was okay with the decision and all was good. I'm glad that's settled. I had a pretty rough night last night worrying about it. Mo is much relieved.

We just came back from our first vet visit where the doc said she was healthy but pretty seriously underweight (by 10-15%). It had been too long since her first puppy shots so we had to start the whole series over. Bummer. But certainly do-able. They said to expect her to grow to between 80-90 pounds and to be a tall, lanky dog, which sounds perfect to me.

She's blended in with our current pack very well. Biscuit, the head honcho, weighing in at 11 pounds, just rolled her eyes at me then went to take a nap. Diamond, the dog, seems to like her as long as she eats from her own dish. He rolled and wrestled with her all afternoon. 'Zilla half-heartedly hissed a few times then curled up in my lap for a snuggle and drool session. Things are going well. I think it will all work out fine.

Yep. I'm not usually into skinny bitches, but I'll make an exception for this one.

@boomerang,
A little lean, alright, but good looking. Clearly, a very intelligent bitch. It just shows.

@boomerang,
Muzzle-tov.

FWIW, I can see clearly golden lab/shepherd mix. what does the vet say about it? The happiest times I've had since living alone has been with my dog. Except he grabs the remote and puts the Dog Whisperer on and argues with Cesar.

May your family and you have lots of fun and playtimes with Gorgeous dog.

@boomerang,
I didn't miss the other nice news in there...."Mo's a pretty sympathetic guy"

@Ragman,
Thank you!

The vet said definitely some shepherd but who knows beyond that. She said we could get a test to find out but she though they were so unreliable that they were really a waste of money. We don't really care what she is. We all prefer large dogs so I'm glad he chose one that will get big.

He's decided to name her Kona but he's gone through a few names already trying to find one that fits. I voted for Weaver since she still acts like her leash is a shoelace that needs to be threaded around everything. She's outgrowing that already though, thank goodness.

@dlowan,
I know! He's growing up! I give his current school a lot of credit for making him socially conscious.

@boomerang,
Hi boomerang,

I gather my perspectives may be rather untimely but IMHO you have no legal/moral/ethical obligation to continue communications with the previous owners given all parities made the deal in full knowledge and in good faith.

If however you feel you have an obligation (for whatever reason) to the prior owner, then I recommend y'all have a full meeting in a mutually neutral place (without the dog) and discover if a resolution might be forthcoming.
