    Default Atlas is getting a sister!!!

    Just put the deposit down on an 8 week old bully girl from the same breeder we got Atlas from. Hopefully she can get here sometime next week.

    We had been toying with the idea for a couple of months but when we saw the pic of the little girl we just knew. Same coloring as Attie but a bit more white.

    My mom thinks we're crazy. Two legged baby due in January and moving to a new home that may not be built by March. So 2 bullies and baby, my wife and I in 800ft2. Should be cozy. But Atlas is a very social bulldog that will probably have a very hard time by himself after the baby is born. Plus we will have moved away from his girlfriend, Lola.

    Anybody have any advice on introducing an 8wk old to a 1yr old and having them get comfortable with each other?

    Given their ages I really don't think there will be many issues at all. Most dogs can sense when they meet a puppy and realise it's just a baby. They see them as no threat, so although they may sulk, they usually accept the new addition very easily!!

    They should be fine, just watch the one year old when they play so he will not get too rough. Plus limit their play time because the 8 week old is still a baby and needs plenty of rest.

    I just tossed in the 8 week old with the other dog, granted she is 12 and we have dog sat a variety of other dogs, so we knew her general response, which was indifference. She too was indifferent to the new puppy. Congrats and enjoy!

    Ha! Thanks everyone. I remember how much work Atlas was and am sure I will have my hands full. I figure we have a chance now to handle a new puppy and no chance after the baby. At least she will be 6 months by the time the baby comes. Atlas was a lot less work by the 6 month mark. And hopefully she will learn from her big brother so the process goes quicker.
