My wife and I picked up a new dog from a local rescue group today. It's very exciting.
We currently have one dog (mostly my wife's dog). Our current dog is a mix between a cocker spaniel and a long-haired daschund. She's a little princess who we got nearly ten years ago as "my" yellow lab was in declining health.
We had been "in the market" for a new dog for awhile now and had actually looked at a few other rescue dogs but didn't feel the connection. Until today.
Here's Moses (on our car ride home):
Moses is 6 years old. He was left behind by a deceased owner. He is an overweight Golden Retriever.
What's going to be cool for me is that I've had some health issues recently and have just been cleared by my doctor to begin some light exercise. That means walking...so, Moses and I will be able to begin an exercise regimen together. We will start together walking and hopefully build up to where we can run together.
The only potential hitch as we welcomed Moses into our home today is the reception he'll be getting from Kelly (our other dog). As I mentioned earlier, Kelly has been the lone little princess in our home for many years and a second dog will be quite an adjustment for her (as it will also be for my wife and I).
Things haven't been too bad today...but there have been a number of territorial squabbles.
I would welcome any stories/advice from dog owners who have introduced new dogs into their households with pre-existing dogs.
This is Kelly:
We did learn today that Moses has a "thing" for stuffed animals. It's kinda like learning to "babyproof" a house again for new grandchildren!
