...Natasha. She's the new puppy. Yesterday, we made arrangements to go get her and bring her home two weeks from today, on April 25.
The woman we're getting her from — she lives over near Chinon, Ussé, and Azay-le-Rideau — sent us this picture yesterday. Natasha is a tricolor Shetland sheepdog ("sheltie") and she has grown a lot since we saw her the one and only time on March 13. Natasha was born on February 23.
