Our newest family member is a 6-pound ball of fun named Stella. She's a Decker Terrier, an unusual breed I stumbled upon last year when I was researching rat terriers. Very similar to rat terriers, and often called giant rat terriers, Deckers are supposed to be a larger, sturdier, calmer version of the standard rat terrier. We'll see.
She's 10 weeks old and is adjusting well to her crate, but still a little unclear on the whole potty training thing. She loves Ozzie the cat, who seems to return her affections, for now. The jury's still out on my Dad's dog, Figgy.
