    Default I am so nervous!!

    Friday we have a meet and greet with a 3 1/2 year old bully from the mississippi english bulldog rescue. i am very excited to meet minnie and for her and bella to get to meet each other. BUT why am i so nervous about bringing another female into bellas space? is it something i will get over or should i just not try to adopt a female? she needs a good home and we can provide that for her but i dont want bella to think what the hell is this girl dog doing here!! i guess we will just have to see how the meet and greet goes and go from there!!!
    Its so hard being the queen!!!

    Try not to be nervous... they will pick up on it. Two females can be tough, but it all depends on the dogs and the leadership in the home -- they may be just fine together, be sure to intro on neutral ground and take them for a walk before entering your home

    How is Bella normally with other dogs? take them for a nice long walk when you get her, let them play for a while then when you take them in the house you go in first, then Minnie, then Bella last so she does not think she owns the space. Once they are inside if Bella displays any unwanted behavior, separate them and let bella get used to minnies scent in the house and come to terms that minnie is staying. It took me almost two months for Brutus to get used to Frankie. If Brutus can come around, there is certainly hope for others. lol, good luck

    bella loves other dogs she loves to play, the rescue is 3 hours away and we are meeting half way so it wont be at our house this time. bella has only ever shown aggressive behavior over bubble wrap and its serious (?? very strange lol). but anything else she is very lovable and laid back as they come.

    OMG!!!! I'm so excited for you. I have been WAITING for you to say bella is getting a brother or sister.

    We decided to get a boy because with Ruthie she likes to be in charge, so brutus was a good fit....even though he runs the show, but we all know who the real boss is....Little Miss Ruthie.

    it's going to go great and i can't wait to hear!
