After Caroline died, we decided we would wait till fall to find another dog. But a week later, the sadness was too much for Lauren. She began asking around, looking at pups online. And this afternoon we found ourselves on a farm near Blanchard, talking to a cowboy and his wife, who breed registered miniature Australian Shepherds. And, after eight days without a dog, we have a two-month old ball of soft fluff. Meet Charlie.
