Zachary's got a giiiiirrrrrrllll friend

Today was the Atlanta Celtic Festival. It went all day, but Mrs Schwartz fell asleep early in the afternoon. At about 7pm, I woke her up and said, "I'm going to the Celtic Festival. Do you want to go?"
We went. It was perfect. We sat in the grass, overlooking the band. Celtic bands, perfect weather, under an oak tree...
She quickly noticed a chocolate lab wandering around. She played with it for a bit, but it wandered off.
We drifted into the main area. I bought her a little dagger. We went back to listen to the next Celtic band. We came upon the same chocolate lab, laying on the sidewalk. Mrs Schwartz laid down next to her as we listened to the band.
After a while, we came to discover that this older, female chocolate lab had been wandering around since 1:30 pm (it was 10 pm). We asked around. Nobody knew the owner.

To say that Mrs Schwartz is less than logical at the thought of a girl chocolate lab? The understatement of the year.

After the band finished, there was no way that we were leaving without this dog. I have to admit; she's about the sweetest dog in the world. She's older. She has some gray hair around her mouth.

So we get her home. Zachary loves her, of course. The surprising thing is that he's been pretty restrained. He's only tried to hump her a couple of times. Mostly, he just seems like he doesn't know what to do with himself. That's how excited he is.

Mrs Schwatrz has lost her mind.

The girl-dog seems pretty comfortable. She growled at Zachary one time when he was getting a little fresh. Other than that, she seems pretty calm. She sits by Mrs Schwartz or me, or by herself.

Zachary is SO happy. She seems to be just as taken with him, though.

It may work out.
