Best friends...

sorry on the angle...
they were twirling and twisting...
romping and playing...
I have tried in the past with small dogs for a play mate for Bebe with no luck at all and had given up on the idea...
the last time he was attacked and required emergency vet services on a Sunday after hours and had several stitches...
not to mention the trauma...
so this is the test that has always failed...
until now...
Moses has many bald spots...
and his haircut is something else...
gave him a bath today...
he was covered in fleas and by dinner time...
I had one...
so off to the sink we went and he was so good...
and Tia and I picked and smashed fleas like crazy...
I wanted to give him one more day to settle in before I traumatized him...
but it had to be done and I am so grateful he likes baths...
he is not clingy today...
he is exploring and sniffing and playing with others and on his own...
but this is how he looks after my shower...
he panics when I close the door...
we have a separate shower with a frosted glass door...
so I have to take my shower with it open so he can see me...
and he sticks his head in there...
so I have to dry me and him...
I just wonder if he showered with his previous owner...
she did hand feed him...
so I have to have some food with me and give him one...
then he eats some out of the bowl and then comes back to me...
I did get to read the weekly paper tonight without him sitting in the middle of it...
we are making excellent progress...

Aaawwww! I am so glad that your pups are getting along well! Sounds like Bebe is happy to have a friend! Little Moses is happy, too I am sure, to find such a loving home:)

Oh Tete Sweetie...
I am so tickled to go Beyond the Garden Gate tonight. What fun to watch the critters play and wrestle a little. I love it.

You have your work cut out for you sweetie, but isn't that just the sweetest little face? Looks like a good friend for you, and actually one you can pick up and take care of. I am so stinkin tickled for you sweetie. Keep sharing the photos, as I so love to see your world, Beyond the Garden Gate. I wish I lived down the road. I would just walk or ride my bike right on over.

Another busy day as I prepare for Momma's visit. She will be here on Monday morning, at 8am. I can't wait. She hasn't been out for 9 years now. I have always gone home, but this year the dr. say no, nope, no way. I am at a high risk for blood clots, so no traveling this year.

Talk to you soon sweetie. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Well, Tete-I started laughing when I saw your post and your first picture. BUTT I kept reading even though I was choking on my coffee. What a fine look at your dog's behind;>) Ya know I love kidding you!

Sounds like your new boy is fitting into the family just fine. If you could teach him to wash your back while you are in the shower that would be quite a trick!

I am so glad that he is playing and eating. I think you are stuck now~ Hugs- Diana
