Well this is my first full day with Baby Bella, she arrived last evening at 5 and we have been having a blast. She is so sweet.
At first Daisy was a bit tentative and avoided her like the plaque, then she started walking closer to her and trying to get a good sniff. It is so fun to see.
Bella has NO idea what to do as far as playing with a big 65# dog at her current 15#'s but she is very interested in finding out. She plays with no other animals at this point cause she is just 4 months now.
After a couple of hours we went outside (when it cooled off a bit) to play. Daisy with her Chuck-it and Bella trailing after her with her 30 foot training leash. I am going to try and get some video tonight (weather permitting) but it is a delight to watch. Daisy now is trying to get her to play chase, her favorite game, but Bella doesn't quite get it yet.
The jury is still out if I am ready or even interested in getting a 2nd doodle but as of right now I am still entertaining that idea. I do have 2 puppy tooth punctures in 2 fingers (I guess it's like child labor, you forget all of that after it's done)...and we have been "outside" to potty at least 24 times in 12 hours.
Bella slept in Daisy's crate and never made a peep from 10:30 last night to 6AM this morning. No paws hit the floor until we were outside and she pooped once and peed twice....15 minutes later she ate breakfast and she did her 2nd round of duties 15 minutes after that (30 minute rule applied). We then played in the backyard with DH, who is also infatuated with this little sprite (it's like having Daisy puppy all over again) but is NOT in the same frame of mind as me in the maybe dept.
The both of them are here at work, Bella at my feet under the desk and Daisy in her bed...they are both crashed.
I have Bella until Saturday, wonder how I will fill then.
Here is Bella watching me get gas this morning...
Daisy also watching me get gas
