Last night it became apparent that things weren’t going to go as well as we thought. First, Dakota loved Cheyenne and became her mother. After a few days of doggie daycare and being tired, she has decided that Cheyenne is not another dog but a pesky fly that bugs her. She has now hit the “when does she go home” stage. This is normal in dogs and usually occurs within a couple of days of the new pup coming home. For Dakota, it took a week but, nonetheless, she has hit the stage. Hopefully this stage will not last very long and we can get back to the buddy-buddy stage. In the meantime, we need to keep an eye on the both of them when they are together because it can easily turn bad. So my husband and I have now hit the cross-eyed stage where we try to pay attention to both of our chocolate lab girls and at the same time make sure they don’t get on each other’s nerves. Funny, who is going to keep an eye out to make sure they don’t get on our last nerve?
