Our new puppy!

Introducing Abby, our new puppy. She's 11 wks old. I picked her up on Fri morning, and she's doing quite well so far. Kallie was a little hesitant at first, as was Abby. They sort of skirted around each other for the 1st day. Then on Saturday, let the playing begin!! They exhaust each other. But I want to make sure Kallie isn't being too rough for Abby. I don't think so, no growling, barking, yelping going on at all. Just run & tumble kind of stuff. So I need to know what sort of signs to watch for regarding roughness. I am giving Kallie her time away from the puppy too. We don't want her to become our "baby-sitter!" Abby has very quickly learned to love her crate. We will continue the crate training excercises that were linked by Dave a few days ago.

Anyhoo - here she is:

Congratulations, Abby is adorable!

As long as there isn't yelping and no one is trying to get away, I think you're fine.

Congratulations on your new cute baby. I'm sure she and Kallie will be great friends going forward. I agree, if neither of them is screaming in pain, then all is good. Have fun.

Gorgeous puppy, looks a little like Cuba. My Coton de Tulear, who is 6 years old, took a couple of days to get used to her, and now they play like mad, running like hell, rough and tumbling but never too rough. He always stops if she squeaks. She is usually the one to hurtle back into the fray. I'm sure you are doing exactly the right thing to give them each time out. Cuba is now 18 weeks and I've had her for 6 of those weeks. She is such a joy and a delight, and a little terror and a pain some of the time, but not often. I am so happy to have two dogs again, it's so fun for them both, and me. Look forward to hearing how you get on.

Abby is a cutie, that's for sure! And, of course, Kallie is beautiful, too! Have a grand time!

There's a world of difference from getting Kallie (1 dog) to getting Abby (having 2 dogs). Abby's so much easier because she has Kallie to play with. At least so far! Abby just loves Kallie & follows her around. But I'm making sure they have separate time too. Like right now Abby's in the kitchen with me, and Kallie's in FR w/DH. I really hesitated & debated getting a puppy, but I really am glad that I finally made the decision. And I know what to expect (upcoming stages). That's surely got to help!
