Walks have definitely been in the mix a lot more since getting Bella. Everyday getting a little longer to tire this incredibly active doggie.
Today we attempted a long one with Mia in stride to try and get them more comfortable with each other. They both love it.
We went over two miles and by the end they were walking side by side with no problems and ready for a nap when we got home.
Amazing how a new dog can change your life. It can be exhausting by snuggles and exercise are making it all worth it.
Having a new puppy in the house in no cake walk. It has been trying. Especially with an older dog already in the house who expects all the love and attention.
But Bella is great! And so smart.
Today (and over the past few days) I taught her to sit! She learned it so quickly that I feel she must have been in a decent home to begin with.
Her and Mia are still having some hiccups but I hope to train them both out of it quickly.
Any pointers for helping an old dog transition into having a puppy around that wants to play all the time are greatly appreciated!
