And Then There Were Three

Before you know it, you wake up one day and somehow have three dogs where previously there were only two.

This is Cara, a Border Collie from a local rescue centre. She seems to be about three years old and was found as a stray. So far she's settling in quite well, especially considering the need to find her place in the hierarchy with Shadow and Baci (at the bottom as it turns out).

Cara's a classic Border from the standpoint of her temperament. Mild, gentle and so far a little clingy, though doubtless that's just part of her settling in.

So there we have it. I've not had three dogs at once before, and I sense that we have yet to get to the bottom of this pack sorting themselves out and so may yet have some "fun" ahead of us, but at least S did get round to finding her replacement girl dog after all.
