ROSE MOVES ON
25 MARCH 2011
Today I brought Rose to be with Pam, Steve, Molly & Harley Simpson,
Introdutions outside went fine; one little growl from Rose,
Nosey Rosey lived up to her name and investigated the entire house,
Did I bring my camera?
I'm hoping Pam will take some.
Her Nosey Rosie nickname fits her well.
There were a couple of growls from her at the first intro,
Will keep you informed how things are going,
She did wag her tail a lot at Steve when he came home.
A few hours later:
Pups are having their first meal now.
Harley did a HUGE bark and play bow at her. She did not respond.
The next day, Pam writes:
We baby-gated off the living room/dining room area and she slept in there in her own bed(s). She was fine. She was ready for sleep.
She ate well this a.m. too. Of course, she always eats well. I just have to chuckle - each time WE eat anything or even ENTER the kitchen, she gets there as quickly as possible and stands guard, just in case anything might fall on the ground. Never have our floors been so free of kibble (Harley is a MESSY eater and kibble gets everywhere). She does clean-up - Hoover could be her nickname!
We'll probably just gate her like we did overnight when we leave for a while today. I am sure she will be fine. I sure wish it would warm up a bit--not that SHE minds the cold at all), but they could all be outside a bit. I think the adjustment would be a bit easier outside. Harley so wants her to play. I doubt that is going to happen!
A few minutes later:
Miss Rose just climbed into one of the big dog beds and pee'd in it. Am sure she was claiming the space as hers. And Molly just did her roll for her, so that is over now, and pack order is established. I told Rose NO NO about that peeing! The bed is in the washer right now, so maybe whatever smell was on there will be gone. I will not keep it in the living room anymore (where both her beds are) at any rate.
She is doing really well, I think actually. She has got to be so confused.
Girl does love her food.
And later that day . . .
She RAN and greeted us when we got home!
