    grouphug.gif THAT is just awesome news. grouphug.gif

    Love the name for the little lady. Does the shelter have a website? If they do they may have posted a picture of her. I can't wait until you get back to MN! I'll go and grab her picture if you like.

    There is bound to be a bit of unrest initially and perhaps a spat or two but she seems low key and unthreatening to your dogs. If she is a more submissive girl the others should adapt quite easily.

    Molly has a new home. Tra la la.
    So happy for you all icon_smile.gif

    Oh Connie...you guys are the BEST! I "heart" Molly too!! You saved her life and she knows it. I have a friend who is blind and have had a few blind friends over the years.... they tell me they can "feel" walls and other big obstacles and if she has been blind for years or for her while life, she can find her way around. Zoey will get over her pout.....give her a little extra attention so she knows you haven't abandoned her.... Oh Molly looks so sweet.... God Bless you and your hubby for taking her.

    I hope this one comes out. This is a better picture of her - taken after she was groomed.

    Thanks so much K9 and Saralaya. I don't think we would have gotten her but for you giving us hope. She is awesome. Well better go console a pouting Zoey. My DH is holding Molly now, so will try to give Zoe some attention.

    What a sweetie!

    I'm so glad it looks like thing will work out with your crew. icon_smile.gif

    And yeah, I agree - be sure to give Zoey some one-on-one time so she doesn't think you don't love her anymore!

    Gosh, they're JUST like toddlers, aren't they? icon_lol.gif

    Thanks Kris. Last night went pretty well. I left her in her bed all night as she was used to being in a kennel and that way I could have Zoey and, of course the other two sleep with me as usual. She had a bit of diarrhea, which is to be expected with all that's been happening with her, but as soon as I got up I took her out and she pee'd. I can't believe how good she is at getting around the house; she very rarely runs into anything. She's already learned that Mom gives good tummy rubs. If she's not in my lap as she is now, whenever I come near her she turns over to let me rub her tummy.

    Thanks Saralaya. I love being able to come here and brag about my furbabies. You are all such caring people.

    We were up moving around this morning. Molly wanted to be where we were and would go to either my DH or me and put her front paws on our legs to be picked up.

    We're gaining slightly with Zoey. She is sitting on my lap right now shaking. I think she's scared of Molly. Molly is sitting on her dad's lap and perfectly content. I was a little worried as I couldn't get her to drink anything. She hadn't had any since we got her home. This morning I put some water in my hand over the water bowl. She would drink the water from my hand but not the bowl. However, a little later she went to the water bowl by herself and was drinking.

    Sorry - I'll probably drive you all nuts with my posts about Molly.

    Good morning!
    I went to bed last night wondering how she would be. She seems to be adapting really well. A dog that has been loved and treated well is generally trusting and open to being re-homed and loved by others. It's what she has come to expect and I am so freaking over-the-moon happy that she has you!

    The stomach issues might last a couple of days as she has had a bunch of changes in a short time. No way of knowing what her feeding schedule was before she was 'discarded'. Harsh word but that's how I feel about people who dump animals - especially older animals.

    One of the things that you can do to get Zoey more on board or onboard more quickly is to implement a "good things happen to Zoey when Molly is around' situation.Very much like what Kris was doing to get Jarly and Minerva to accept each other. Don't give them treats unless Molly is there too. Soon Molly = treats and becomes much loved icon_lol.gif You can give Molly the treat last though icon_wink.gif

    I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks of posts from you. Happy, happy over here.

    Now I have to go work on cleaning out my basement. Not so happy there. icon_wink.gif

    Thanks K9. Good idea about the treats. I had to run to the store so bought some chews and a new toy for Zoey. She is munchign on the chew now in the same room as Molly so we are making a little progress.

    I was just thinking that your dog pack accepted your mother's dog with no problem so Molly shouldn't be much of an issue. Zoey will be in a snit for a short time only I am sure.

    How was Molly doing today?

    How do you remember all that stuff K9? I had forgotten about Mom's dog. Zoey didn't have any problem with her, so I don't understand why she is having such a problem with Molly. I guess she did already know Princess though as I had taken Zoey into Moms a few times when Mom and Princess were living in Mom's house. Zoey has been in the bedroom probably 3/4 of the day. I've tried bringing her out a few times but as soon as i let go of her she runs right back there. She did eat supper tonight and a few times today she got pretty close to Molly. She even sat on the arm of my DH's chair when he was holding Molly. I've been letting my DH hold Molly most of the time as Zoey has always been really jealous of any dog I have on my lap. Works better anyway because my DH has a really bad back and sits most of the day;. I'm up and down a dozen times and busy around the house. Zoey almost acts like she is afraid of Molly. I don't really understand that either as she is usually such a tough little girl. The treats when she is close to Molly don't really work. Zoey won't take them. I'm sure she will be fine - just need to give her a little time. To have done it right, we should have had the dogs meet at a neutral place and then bring them back to the house, but we only have one car here, so wouldn't have been able to do that anyway. It was dark when we got home, so I wouldn't have been able to leave my DH at like the dog park while I ran home to get the other girls. Probably would have helped though. Oh wow, aren't you sorry now that you asked.
