Here is another member of my canine family. Her name is Róisín, which is pronounced roe-SHEEN, and means "little Rose" in Irish (sometimes called Gaelic). She's a German Shorthaired Pointer and is nine years old. She spent the afternoon with me in the Casita
and helped me plan my first trip of the season. She *loves* Otra because she can get away from the other dogs and take long, solitary snoozes on the bed, all snuggled up in blankets. At her age she likes to be off by herself more than she did when she was younger.
