I think Darby is so pretty

It's no secret how very, very much I like tri-colored dogs. Dogs like my old Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, Hobie, who died nearly two years ago.

Or, like the Pumpkin-girl who will be coming to live with us soon:

 

Darby doesn't have the "traditional" patchy, tri-colored pattern that makes my heart sing, but she is tri-colored. Her three colors are just blended together, rather than painted on in distinct patches.
And, look at that black mask!

And, those eyes!

Her coloring may not make my heart sing, but she sure is pretty and she sure has stolen my heart!

Thank you for the compliments. She really is a pretty dog and sweet as can be. She misses Ethan (my little nephew); many times after his visit, she would run to th bedroom where he slept and check to see if he was there!
