Earlier in my blog, you met Macy, one of my 3 dogs. Today, you will meet, Marley, the middle child :) I adopted Marley on the same day I adopted Macy from my local Pet Smart ASPCA Adoption Day. She also came from Tennessee with Macy, but was a little bit older, and maybe even a little smellier than Macy too. She is a Lab Mix, but the vet says she looks like a Tennessee Bird Dog, which would make sense, and she certainly has the speed and agility of a bird dog. Marley has always been a little goofy, from the day she came home she would bound around clumsily and we lovingly call her Marmaduke.

Poor little Marley had a nasty case of worms when we took her home but after a few weeks that was all taken care of and she was in playful puppy mode 24/7. She loves to sprint around in circles, weave in and out of trees, and giving hugs like a human. Oh, did I mention that Marley is one of the most chatty dogs I've ever met? She talks to the other dogs in a way I've never quit heard any other dogs communicate in my life, sometimes I swear she's about to start making sense! Also, Marley doesn't fully understand that she'd no a lap dog, as she is the largest of the 3 dogs. But, we play along with it, and let her sit on top of us despite her size.
The picture on the top right is her as a puppy, the others, are my little Marley just a couple days ago at 1 year old. She's a sweetheart and a cuddle bug, which luckily overshadows her constant barking.
Stay tuned to meet Mel, the eldest of the dogs, the smallest and the anointed queen of the house!
