Okay, so those pictures of foster dog Rosie the other day weren’t exactly true-to-life images.
Here are a couple photos of the real pup, taken by the rescue group’s foster-care coordinator, Christine, who is a talented photographer:

Those oughta cheer you up. 🙂
I have no clue what breed mix she is. Got any ideas? Clearly she’s predominantly a hound of some sort — a scent hound judging by the way she keeps her nose to the ground when we leash-walk. (No off-leash walks for this girl; no telling where or how far she’d follow that ever-curious snout.) The closest I could find on a breed identification page was a blue-tick coonhound. But Rosie could be no more than a distant relative to that breed. She’s way too small for one thing, only about 35 pounds.
Something about her is very familiar. But I can’t place it. The white coloring, BTW, seems to be more natural coloring than a sign of old age. She’s not young, but she’s not old enough to have gotten all that white from aging.
