We have been looking for a long time (rather Jim was looking) for a dog to keep our Bogie company. We decided on Mully, a 10-month-old miniature Schnauzer. Talk about opposite personalities. She's laid back, extremely affectionate a good car rider and somewhat of a "barker".

We had the opportunity to have her stay over night a couple of weeks ago to see if Bogie would accept her into his own home. They seemed to get along so great. However, as soon as he decided she was here to stay, he wasn't that happy. They are growing on each other day-by-day and have some great times racing around the back yard.

She has been absolutely perfect about staying in the yard, too. Jim put up the flags again and made her too scared to go close to them. She even comes when she is called. That is totally the opposite of Bogie.

We have had a name picked out for a second dog for a long time. She was going to be named Birdie. But, then we get this 10-month-old with the name of Molly. Since our oldest daughter's name is Molly, that just wouldn't work, would it? Jim substituted Mulligan and we call her Mully for short. Mulligan is a golf term for "do-over". She's doing over her life with us!
