This is Little Bit, a Jack Russell/dauchshund mix who we adopted about a year after Maxine Bean. She is fiesty, just like the little guy who always starts the bar fight. She is also extremely smart and knows the precise geographic center under the bed where you can't reach her.
So we already have two dogs and really weren't looking for another, never mind another two.
However, my beloved Maxine is not getting any younger. In fact she is over 12 and was run over by a car when she was a rescued dog, so her arthritis is pretty bad. We will love and care for her until it is time for her to go back to the Creator. The huskies have a history of coming, when another dog is ready to go home with God. One dog doesn't replace another, but it does make things easier.
