We got a friend for Sydney yesterday. She is approximately 1 year old lab/retriever mix. She loves the dog and the cats. The dog likes her. It was the first time I have seen Syd wag her tail in a long time. The cats aren't so sure, but they will survive. She is completely trained and we can't figure out why she was returned to the humane society. She is a wonderful, loving dog. She has as much energy as my son so it is working out well. She is tiring him out lol.
We had her at the vet and she was great there. The vet said she is really healthy. We also took her into the pet store and she loved that. We couldn't do any of these things with Syd as she has always been terrified of people. This is a very happy and content dog.
Of course, my problem is that I am so worried Syd will overdo it, that I don't let her spend a lot of time with Summer (new pup). This is really going against the reason that I wanted the dog in the first place. Sydney is very unsteady on her feet and, sometimes, Summer knocks her over.
When Summer does get to be too much, Syd lets her know it in no uncertain terms. I guess I worry because Syd is my dog and always by my side and I don't want her to feel like I am pushing her away. Now, Summer wants to be by my side and I feel guilty. I just wish I could stop worrying and enjoy the dogs.
