    We found Virgil at animal shelter today, he is a Shepherd Mix, is mostly black, has brown legs and white/grey & brown on his face. The tips of his ears flop over and he doesn't have much of a tail. He weighs 48 pounds and is about 2 feet high, he is pretty skinny. He seems to like to be outside and is ok with being on the long lead in the yard and is good walking on the leash and minds good.

    We have played with some toys and he has been up on the couch a few times with hubby. Right now he is laying down on the floor next to me.

    He has been neutered, micro-chipped & up to date on his shots. It was 1/2 price day at the shelter so he only was only $ 40.00 and plus $ 8.00 for his license. The shelter gave us a coupon for 5 pounds of free Nutro dog food from a local feed store and a coupon for some stuff at Petco.

    After dinner we will go for a walk and meet the neighbors.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers during this hard time of my life.[This Message was Edited on 05/27/2011]
