Thank you to all of you who responded about my new dog, Gertie. I have been waiting to tell the story of how she came to us because I wanted my blog friend, Kim at one of my favorite dog blogs: Vizslocity to tell you the story . Vizslocity is a funny name if you aren’t familiar with the dog breed: Vizsla. I encourage you to go visit Kim’s site and read about Gertie and Vizslas. There are tons of great dog pictures over there. By the way, Gertie is a Vizsla/Lab mix, but one of the great things about Vizsla people is they aren’t too snobby about that sort of thing.
