When I'm Not Reading

When I'm Not Reading is a weekly meme of The Unread Reader.  Check out her rules for this fun feature here.

When I'm not reading I'm doing a lot of other things.  But I told a few people that I would post pictures of my dog.  We got her from an animal rescue and we think she is a Katrina dog.  Her name at her foster house was "Marielle", but the people there called her "Mari".  We couldn't think of anything else that fit, so Mari she is!  And it suits her.  We think she is part Border Corder and/or part Australian Cattle dog, but we're not sure.  We might do one of those doggy dna tests just to see.

Mari is really smart and figured out how to work a doorknob with her paws and can do a variety of tricks.  Her number one admirer is Spooky, our evil cat.  He looooooves Mari.  We've told him many times that it will never work out, but he is devoted.  He follows her around and when she goes out he sits at the window to wait for her, sometimes scratching at the glass.  She tolerates him, but sometimes you'll hear a snarl and yip and we know Spooky got in Mari's face.

Mari is beautiful, and her name looks like it suits her!

Her coat is amazing! It looks all soft and shinny! I love that picture of her with the leaves all around her.

Thanks for sharing! Great pictures!

How did I miss this post? Your dog is beautiful! My Sadie is a rescue dog too and as for my cat, he literally walked into my house on my birthday and never left. I considered it a good omen! As you know he is a black cat just like your Spooky.
