We got ourselves a dog yesterday. The acquisition was quite spontaneous, although we had been thinking about getting one at least since last year. I might post some pictures in the future. For the moment, just think of him as a miniature Fuchur (the pink dragon from Neverending Story) in black with a hint of reddish brown. There's some Labrador in the mix and definitely Dachshund (which might be why the previous owner called him Dakel, but he was introduced to us as Daky and due to his colour we're rather interpreting it as Darky). So the impression is that of a elongated, lowered down Labrador. He's very cute and well behaved. Tried to get into our bed and after we forbid it two times he didn't try it again. Good boy.
