meet the newest addition to the house

Ms. Cornelia Fairbanks.  You can call her Connie.

2 year old female black lab mix
i got her from a lab rescue


  1. Welcome to the family, Connie. She looks like a sweetheart.

  2. All RIGHT! She looks like Toby's little sister. (Have you met Toby?) Is she a good girl?

    I remember when you were working at Argonne and had dinner with us after work, I told you we were looking to adopt a dog, and you said you wanted to adopt a dog, too. Glad the time is finally right for you! Did you name her, or is that the name she came with?

    Welcome, Connie!

  3. I don't know if I've met Toby.

    Connie is the sweetest dog in the world. I know all dog owners say that their dog is the best, but I'm not blowing smoke on this one. She is such a great dog.

    I named her, but her namesake, Cornelia Fairbanks, was called Nellie. I named her Connie after that wonderful woman we are related to.
