Welcome Home Marla!

Marla came to meet us this morning. She's a nine year old bounce who lost her home due to a death in the family. Kari's right, she is a total sweetheart. Never have I felt such soft fur on a black grey. During the intros in the backyard, Marla trotted right up to my hubby and leaned on him for lovin'. He was immediately smitten. :wub: Tip and Chancy were perky and friendly (of course!), so we moved indoors pretty quickly. Marla was curious about Sid the kitten, but was easily distracted away from him.

 

We got a little choked up at first, missing our Sissy princess. We weren't necessarily *needing* a third hound again, but Marla just caught my eye when Kari fostered her. And now that she's here, it just feels right. :)

 

Marla's only been here a couple hours, but already all three pups are napping away right behind me in the "office beds" like it was meant to be. She has a couple of weird spots on her skin that I certainly want a vet to look at, but otherwise she seems fairly healthy.

 

Marla checks out Sid the kitten:

Marla quickly discovered the cushy dog beds in our office:

After the dogs settled in, Sid Vicious had his evil way with one of Marla's toys. :lol

Welcome home Marla, I think you'll like it here sweetheart. We already adore you! :inlove

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.

Thank you everyone! Marla has blended in here seamlessly. She slept through the night without a fuss, walked with us on our regular morning stroll, ate her food right alongside Tip and Chancy. Yesterday evening, she even played a little with a toy. :yay:

 

I think she's had some obedience training. She definitely knows how to sit on command, and she heels perfectly just at my left. Which is a challenge for me, since I am accustomed to walking all dogs on my right. Yesterday I kept trying to coax Marla to my right to join Tip & Chancy, but she insisted her place was on my left. :lol Today Hubby walked her while I had Tip & Chancy, and she heeled flawlessly... until she spotted a cat in some bushes. Can hardly blame a girl... ;)

 

I think Marla was pretty well loved, as she is the first bounce I've had who came with some possessions. a sweater, toys, bed, even dishes in a home-built-looking raised feeder!

 

That's the update for this morning. Today she'll be alone here muzzld with my gang while we're at work. Hope it goes well! :goodluck:
