    my parent's dog, lady (orangutango, take a look!)

    This is my mom and dad's new dog, Lady. After Finn and I moved out in May, my dad knew he needed a companion. He's retired, and, my mother works, so, he's at home a lot by himself. Lady was seen by my dad's neighbor being dropped off and left behind. Dad's neighbors had recently lost their pet (she was very old) and thought they might be ready for a new dog. They decided they weren't and asked my dad if he wanted her. She's been a member of the family ever since. I think they've had her about two months now. I put Orangutango's name in the title because I told my parents she looked like she had Toller in her. She's the right weight, too, about 43 pounds or so. No matter what she is, though, she's absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to meet her! Here she is, my dad's new Lady.

    She is a cutie! I definitely see Toller... if her coat was longer, I'd say she could be pure!

    She's absolutely gorgeous!! It's hard to tell simply from a picture, but she really looks like she could be all (or atleast mostly Toller). Her coat is a bit short, and she's a little heavy for the average female Toller but besides that, it's the only breed I can see. She looks pretty young to me, which could explain the shorter coat. I'd guess around 6-8 months old. She sure is a beautiful girl .

    Actually, she'd already had a litter when my parents got her. :/ The vet's estimated her age at about a year, maybe a bit more. She does look a lot like a toller, though. Pretty lady she is.

    I'd looked up some stuff, and, everything I found said that the females were around 37 to 45 pounds, and, males up to about 55. Could be just the sites I looked at, too.

    But, again, whatever she is, she's a sweetheart!

    Yeah, they can be up to 45lbs. The average female is around 37lbs though. I thought she was younger, which is why I said she seems a bit heavy as I assumed she might have had some growing left to do. But, if she's a year old like they think she is, she could very well be purebred . Poor girl already having a litter though, she's still so young. The coat is still throwing me off, but perhaps she lost it all after having the pups? Who knows. She sure looks like a sweet girl, and she's very lucky to have found a home with your parents!

    Ah, I see! Yeah, you can kinda see a nipple in the picture, they were very obviously just being used when my parents got her, as they were a bit "hangy", for lack of a better word. Not sure what the story is completely, as they never were able to find the owners or anything. But, she's spayed, now. She could be pure toller, but, I'm not sure. She's definitely part! And, you're right, she is a lucky girl! But, my parents are lucky, too!

    Oh she is so cute! I love her face, and she has a great smile. I bet she smiles alot now that she found a great new home. It is so nice of your parents to take her in. See what you have started, Finn?
