a new member of the family

Introducing.....SCOOBY-DOO!!! Scooby joined our family a week ago. We "acquired" him via freecycle.org. LOL Someone was wanting to get rid of him, and being the suckers that we are, we took him in. He has been absolutely great! He is a lab-mix, about a year and a half old. He is fully house-trained, very obedient, loves kids, and already neutered. He has been such a great addition! The boys took about a day to get used to him, but now they are all over him, as you can see in the bottom picture. He knows all the basic commands. We take him out to run and play with his toys in the side yard. He stays with us, does not run away. He is very tolerant of everything. The only time he really barks is when he is outside and ready to come in. He will give one of those "come get me" barks. The kids have LOVED having him. They want to take him out and play with him. I was not sure about it a first, but seeing the way the kids have loved having him, playing with him, and taking care of him has made him a great addition to the family!
