Fun first week
OK, we've had Bella for a little more than 1 week. So far, so good. I was really worried how my older German Shepherd (Samson) would accept her. He's 12+ yrs old and has always been a very Alpha male. I figured our 2 yr old Golden Retreiver (Journey) would love her (she loves everyone). Boy was I surprised, Samson accepted her right away and Journey didn't like her at all. Everytime Bella would pick up a toy, Journey would take it from (as if she were saying "that's mine"). Bella would easily take another toy, but the retreiver would take that one too, etc... The other day I took all 3 dogs out, Journey took away one of the toys from Bella and was proudly walking around the yard because she took 'her' toy from the puppy. Then, Samson walked over to Journey and literally took the toy out of her mouth and dropped it in front of him, he then gave her a little look as if to say "now, try taking it away from me!!!". (she would NEVER challenge him). Samson then let Bella have the toy. I was busting up laughing at them for about 5 minutes.
