We are so in love with our newest addition, Miss Dolly!!!! Scott went to Office Max a few weeks ago, and at the Pet Smart next door, it was dog adoption day. I know better to not even look, but he couldn't resist, and took a look through the puppies available. This sweet little face was there, but he came home without her, only to tell me all about her and how he almost came home with a friend for Monkey. Welp, skip to today, when he had to go back to Office Max, and it was adoption day again, and he decided to torture himself again, and take a look. Her sweet little beagle face was there again, but again, he came home empty handed. When we got home, he told me about it, and we decided that though it seems totally crazy, we feel like our poor Monk has been lonely and needed a companion. He loves being around other dogs, and though that in our day to day lives, what's one more dog? They'll go out together, get fed together, and probably keep each other company. So out we went, as a family, to pick up our newest family member. :)
Little Dolly (names after Dolly Parton, one of mine and Scott's favorites), is half Monkey's size, shy, skinny, and FAST. She's still a little nervous, but has yet to bark, bay, snap, or do anything but look adorable since we picked her up. The girls, as you would imagine, are head over heels, especially Brantley.
The adoption ladies told us to pretty much leave Dolly alone for the first few days, and let her get acclimated to us and how our household works, and then she'll work her way in. The girls have had a hard time leaving her alone, but have been so sweet and so gentle with her. They are completely in love.
