Mingus and Vespa have a new cousin, Scarlett! She's from BASH, the Bay Area Siberian Husky rescue organization. I think she's a GSD and husky mix since she looks a little bit like both of my dogs. Her estimated age is 8 months old. A puppy! We have a puppy in the family!
She's a little camera shy since she isn't used to being the focus of the paparazzi.
However, she does warm up if you give her something to chew on.
And, boy does she ever warm up around Mingus. Watching these two interact confirms my suspicions that Mingus is just an overgrown, 3-year-old puppy. They are infatuated with each other!
