Well... today is the day we get our new little girl ... TALLULAH.
We have to kill a few hours before we head out to Pukekohe to pick her up.
Once we have her, we are visiting Gayle and Peppa at Patamahoe too.
So, it's going to be a fun filled and exciting day!
We are all looking forward to getting our wee girl home... and introducing her to Teddy and Coco.
I've been thinking of how to do it. I think we will let Coco meet her first, and keep Teddy away from her for an hour or so.
I will introduce her 'smell' to him first, then once he's used to that... I will bring him into the room and carefully let him sniff her.
Fingers crossed he doesn't snap.
If he acts true to form and decides he wants nothing to do with the puppy, that will be fine. He can slowly get used to her. He didn't like being around Coco's puppies and seemed frightened of them even.
I hope he's the same with Tallulah and keeps his distance.
Then of course we have Dante. Dante is fairly rough (in a loving way), towards Teddy and Coco, so hopefully he's not too exuberant for the puppy.
Or maybe the puppy will jump all over Dante and maybe even chew his toes... and it will be us having to 'protect' Dante! Ya never know.
So, that's our day for now... waiting to go get Tallulah!
I will take a gazillion photos and share when we get home.
I was going to take a photo of the empty puppy crate... and say something like... "Empty, waiting for puppy"...
*squeals*... we are off to get Tallulah!!!!

But before that... we stopped in to see Peppa and her forever family:

They also have a boy dog :

All of Gayle, Jenna and Shane's dogs didn't mind Tallulah at all!
After visiting with them, we had lunch in Patamahoe, which is bigger than we expected, with quite a large subdivision of brand new homes being built.
ABOVE: HOME. What cracks me up about this photo is Patick in the background... photo bombing!
I was amazed at how well Coco and Teddy took to her! Coco was like "OMG, play with me!" and was super excited... which was lovely.
Then we introduced Teddy to her, and to my amazement... Teddy sniffed her and didn't seem to mind her at all!
All that worry for nothing, so relieved.
I'm downloading a short video as I type, once it's finished I'll put it on here too.
End of Day: well it's been an awesome day. Tallulah is gorgeous, and right now happily asleep in her 'area'. The crate? She didn't like it, so we put up a puppy fence in a corner of the lounge for her, she's much happier now. And she gets to sleep on the fluffy woolen rug, which she seems to like very much.
