Black Dog

            You ain't got no name boy till dragline gives you one.

We got a new dog.  She's only 18 months old and a mix between a black lab (what else) and something or other.  My guess that it's a Weimaraner (wisenheimer).  I have nothing against any breed (except bassets) and she is a beautiful dog, friendly and playful, and most important, she doesn't bark--sheer music to my ears.  The dog pound said her name is "Venus" but she doesn't really look much like a venus to me so I continue to call her blackdog, until I can negotiate a name change with the family.  That may be hard to do since Cyn loves the name venus.

Here are some pics of blackdog.
