Our new little girl, Simcha!
Her name is pronounced "sim-kha" -- say the second syllable as if you had a little phlegm in your throat! It's Hebrew for "happiness," and it's a perfect fit. She is a happy girl and she makes us happy!
She's a black Lab, she's just about 4 months old, we brought her home from the shelter yesterday. It's amazing to think that somebody actually didn't want this well-behaved, lovable cutie!
She had a great first night in her crate in our bedroom. Didn't whine or make noise or have any accidents. Got up with Roberta to go to the bathroom and then, when Roberta went to work, Simcha went back to sleep until I woke up. She's sleeping at my feet under the desk as I write this.
She's been with us for barely 24 hours and already we're in love!!!
