Default New baby today

I'm getting a 3 year old female Maltese today at 1:00. She is a little 5 pounder in a family with small kids. These small breeds aren't uaually adopted out to families with young kids but this dog was sent home with a 2, 5 and 9 year old 3 years ago and she doesn't get along with the youngest and bit her face the other day. They are busy and don't have time to do what the dog needs and are dealing with the oldest having brain cancer so it's kind of stressful there. They are gone a lot and DO love the dog, they just know that they can't do for her as she deserves and don't want a kid scared of the dog.

Her name is Lilly. Please send good thoughts and prayers her way so that this isn't too traumatic for her???

Bogie has been gone 5 weeks today.

Everything is great. I have no complaints and she seems fine in all ways.

Crated at night and no crying, eating well, goes to the door.....seems more comfortable with everyone else.

Couldn't ask for a better transition. Molly was an easy transition too but she didn't do the snooping Lily does so Lily figured some things out a little faster.

We even went out for 2 hours last night and I would have never guessed I've leave a new dog so soon. : ) : ) : )

It is going so well that it's hard to believe it will just be one week tomorrrow that she came hme with me!

She IS a little "barky" but then so is Molly. The difference is that Molly barks to demand things and Lily just barks! LOL She is getting better, new sounds are becoming familiar sounds and our coming and goings are becoming old habit for her. She is a cuddler and takes up so little space you hardly know she is there.

She and the other small dogs are doing fine, once in awhile a little snit because Lex, Liv and Molly aren't used to having a number 4 dog get in the way when there is a cat or toy to chase.

Feels so right that I know it was meant to be.
