Day two with Tina, she is a delightful little dog, even though its early days, yet already the three dogs seem to be working things out between them.
Marleen has let Tina know she is the top dog, Cyril had a wobble yesterday, he got worried and insecure, but a visit to the pet shop for tripe, dry tripe chews as well as new toys soon cheered him up.
This morning Richie got up early, to take the dogs to the park, when they returned Marleen, Cyril and Tina were very happy dogs.
They ran around jumping into dog beds, and then back out again, all at top speed, almost like whirling dervishes, they kept this up for more than 30 minutes
Tina had to be introduced to dog beds, yesterday she immediately wanted to sit on the sofa and chew her smelly tripe chew, she didn’t understand, she does today.
The next thing is to get her totally house trained, at the moment she has not made the connection between going out to the dog toilet and peeing or pooling.
This afternoon she came back from the dog toilet and had a pee, then a poo under the table in the front room.
I am sure Richie will be able to help Tina make the connection soon, she is a clever wee dog, will soon be house trained.
The good news is Tina likes us all, she has started to defend the house by barking at potential intruders, I am so happy she has made her mind up that this is her new home.
