A Little Tolerance Goes A Long Way

It’s been exactly one week since Laynie came into our lives. While it hasn’t exactly been easy, it’s been so worth it. We’re all settling in to a bit of a routine. Laynie seems to be thriving in a (semi)calm household environment with lots of love. Even Nola seems to be getting used to the new house guest. I wouldn’t say she is in love with Laynie, but she is tolerating her. I have even caught them snuggling a few times. However, the snuggles have been started by Laynie and just put up with, not quite enjoyed, by Nola.

Laynie trying to sneak in a cuddle.

Laynie is trying really hard here, notice her paw over Nola's leg.

The girls side by side. Laynie is actually laying on Nola's leg.

"Maybe if I roll into her, she won't notice and she'll stay for a while."

"I'll let Nola be the little spoon."

Although in a perfect world Nola would reciprocate the snuggling, her tolerance for Laynie is awesome and we are so lucky to have TWO amazing dogs in the house at once. I think we could all learn a thing or two from Nola about raising our tolerance levels for the good of someone in need.

  1. Aw, she is a sweetie! My boyfriend & I are fostering one of her puppies, Mavis (aka Snooki) – I think she is going to look a lot like Delaynie. Super snuggler, too! Fortunately our dog Ruca has a high tolerance for invasion of personal space, but it always takes a little while for her to warm up to a new foster. Thank you so much for posting this – hopefully more people will see how rewarding fostering is, despite the difficulties!
