Lupe Sandoval becomes acquainted with new male Bernese Mountain Dog mix that he and his wife, Lori,  adopted Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2011,  at the animal shelter.  Sandoval and his wife said the dog is a good farm dog and he will fit in wonderfully with their horses and cattle on the 40 acres of land where they live in El Reno. Lupe thinks his new dog is large enough to help "keep an eye on the place." The OKC Animal Shelter is having a holiday adoption special through Christmas. Cats older than six months are free, and kittens and dogs are $25.  Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
