Our new addition...

Dakota Rose is a new dog we got yesterday. She's 8 1/2 months old, so she's past the chewing up things and she's housebroke. Yay. :) She's very skittish, she misses her family of dogs. Linda has a ton of them and she's in shock. Rod chose this name and he loves the dog too. Lily is a little jealous, but not too bad. She's taking charge and letting Dakota know who the boss is. LOL Here is a picture of her, so you can get an idea. Lily is a labradoodle that has tight curls, where Dakota is the same breed with straight hair with just a little wave in it. THis picture doesn't do her justice, she is just precious. She's half the size of Lily and so darn cute. SHe weighs 16 pounds and won't get any larger than that. Lily is 32. She has beautiful eyes. :) Just keep in mind that my camera isn't that good. I would have put one with the two together, but they won't stop playing long enough to do that. LOL In the last hour, she has calmed down a great deal. I think she's getting used to us. Yay!!!!

Dakota is quiet and sweet. Lily is loud and hyper-active. LOL But Dakota might change too. Might just be new owner jitters. She's starting to fit in, really well.

Awww, she's gorgeous! I'm sure she'll be happy once she settles down. Change is always hard for them. &hearts

Lovely dog.

If the two of them really take to each other, they'll work off a lot of their excess energy on each other!

So far, Lily getting most of the exercise. Dakota keeps lying down when Lily approaches, which I hear is normal. It will be better in a few days. They just have to get used to each other.

Mmm. Probably showing submission to the resident, especially if Lily is older?

Lily is 15 months and Dakota is just eight months. And did I mention what a brat Lily is? WE've got her so spoiled that she's obnoxious. We've got to work on that. She was a little better today with the pup, so hopefully each day will get a little easier. THey're so cute together. I've got to get some pictures of them standing side by side.

She is starting to settle in and is doing very well. She's so darn cute that I hate to even reprimand her for chewing up the grand-daughter's toys. LOL Note to self: Must get some more small chew toys for Dakota.
