We'd talked about getting another dog for a long time. Daisy is a great dog and is doing much better with her fear issues, but she's alone for long stretches while we're at work and she gets lonely. This dog was at the shelter for quite awhile and she has some separation anxiety problems that were apparently making her difficult to adopt. So we brought her home.
Penny is a 19 month old pit bull mix (we're thinking there's some boxer in there too). She's basically an excitable 53 lb puppy. Penny is like a blank slate. She sort of knew how to sit but basically she knows nothing else.
Penny is a cuddler. She wants to be in your lap or spooned at all times. If you cuddle her she falls asleep instantly. oh, and she snores.
Daisy is the model older sister. She loves having a playmate but gets a little jealous because Penny is such an attention whore. Daisy likes to show off a little bit because she's bigger and faster than Penny (and quite a bit less tubby), and poor Penny gets frustrated because she keeps losing their wrestling matches. Penny's gangbusters at tug of war though, so she'll jump at any opportunity to play that game.
Wyatt has been surprisingly brave. He's even laid down next to Penny so he could hang out with the family. Ellie is taking out her frustration by shredding toilet paper and pulling my quilting fabric off the shelves and onto the floor. blackkitty steers clear of everybody but this is nothing new.
So that's our new addition. I think it'll be the last one for a long while. 5 pets is reaching the edge of insanity.
