It’s been a few days now and things are definitely better. It has been much harder than I imagined. The three of us were in such a routine that adding a fourth sent us all into a tailspin.
The first night we had Delaynie was tough. Nola was not sure what to do about this dog in her house. After a long walk together, a short sniff, and and even shorter intro in the backyard, Delaynie went downstairs with Jim while Nola and I stayed upstairs. Nola wouldn’t settle in, she kept going to the basement door sniffing every time she would hear commotion. Meanwhile, Delaynie had so much energy that Jim thought she would never stop.
At bedtime Delaynie went in her crate and Jim came upstairs. None of us slept much. Nola wouldn’t stay in bed with us. Delaynie cried to be let out. Jim and I were restless.
Thankfully I had the next day off so I could spend more time trying get everyone adjusted. Stay tuned for Part 2.
