Meet Taos, my new running buddy!

Got a new dog last week. Kenny named her Taos, since he met her in Taos, New Mexico last month while doing an art show there. She is a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dog - we got her through the Catahoula rescue organization. She is super cute and high energy and ready to run when I'm all healed up. I love running with Dixie, but she is getting a little older and can't run very far without limping the next day.
What a ham that Taos dog is turning out to be.
She looks a lot like Dixie when Dixie was a pup. Here is Taos at around 7-8 months old:
Here is Dixie at around 6-8 months old:
We now know that Dixie dog is part Catahoula. The markings are just too similar. Dixie is also black lab, which has become more dominate the older she gets.
Welcome to our crazy home Taos!

Wow! Taos and Dixie Dog do look alike at that age! Dixie certainly has taken on more of the Black Lab characteristics as she's gotten older.
