A big, open-arms welcome to Merlin, our good friend Bill Schiesl’s adorable new sheltie puppy. He’s a handsome blue merle with a proclivity for sleeping on top of tables and, as you can see, under the TV. We can’t wait to have him over for a puppy play date with our Westies. I’m already planning how to distract Bill while I steal Merlin!—Sid
