Introducing our first family dog, Ruby.  She’s a 1.5-year-old Basset Hound/Beagle mix (a “Bagel”) about knee-high and 35 lbs.  She’s awesome.  We picked her up at the McKinney pound last Tuesday (referenced in the pic above), and it’s already like she’s at home with us.  Her many talents already include joining me on my 3-mile runs, relieving herself outside and an amazing stop-drop-and-roll for belly rubs.

More pictures and stories to come in this pet adventure.
