Dog. . .

Well, I'm not entirely sure how to describe her. . . imagine a cross between a coyote and a small fox, and that's kinda like how she looks. She's not real big, but she does have a somewhat strong resemblance to a short haired coyote. She's fairly lean (actually, she's a little scrawny right now, likely on account of being a former stray, but even when she puts on a little weight, she looks to remain very lean), and very quick moving.

I think my brother took a picture of her. I'll try to get a copy of it and get it scanned in a few days.

Updated: I've found out what she is. She's a Basenji mix. A quote from basenji.com is as follows:
I wish I had a dollar for every time someone stopped me on the street and asked, "What kind of dog is that?" I'd probably have enough money to keep our basenjis in toys for the rest of their lives.

My stock answer has become, "It's a basenji, a barkless African hound dog." Of course, that's a little like summing up Gone with the Wind with, "It's a book about the civil war." True enough, but you're leaving all the juicy parts out.

You can see some pictures at basenji.com and basenji.org.
