Introducing Luna's New Sister, Jit Zeta (Now Minerva, Aka Minnie&#

I brought an almost 4 y/o, light red girl, JIT Zeta (now Minerva/Minnie) home as a "foster" on December 7...I knew after about 3 days that she would fit in perfectly with Luna and I. So many people told me, "Two girls can be iffy together, be careful!" And so I was...muzzled them both all of the first day or two, kept Minnie leashed at all times, etc. But as luck would have it, they bonded immediately! In 3 weeks there have been 0 incidents, not even a growl (well, playful growls yes, but aggressive ones, no). Today my paperwork and adoption fee went through to my group so Minnie is officially mine! I thought Luna was a love sponge, but Minnie is the type that will literally sleep with her nose almost touching mine! She and Luna both sleep on my bed at night, but luckily they each have their own spots which allows me to have some room, too. :D Some of you might remember me bringing my parents' standard poodle, James, to keep Luna company due to her severe SA. He went home when I got Minnie, but the two girls are happy as clams while I'm at work, lazing around and licking PB from their kongs. I still muzzle them when I leave which is just a safety precaution. So far, everything has been awesome! I'm so happy I was able to adopt two greys in the same year! Luna in May, Minnie in December. I've been posting an insane number of pictures on Facebook, but for those of you who haven't seen pictures yet...


On the way home from the adoption kennel! It was about a 90+ minute drive.


Fast friends. ;)


They bonded quickly!


Minnie has very expressive ears!


First visit to my parents' house.


Cuddles and winter bandanas.


First snow for both of them! (Race records show Texas, Florida, and Alabama for Minnie, and Florida and Georgia for Luna).


First time meeting Santa!


Visiting my parents, plus James (spoo), Ginny, and Harry (mini dachshunds). They all get along great!

I'm so glad that things are working out beautifully, and that Luna feels as safe with Minnie as she did with James.

This is an awesome story! You guys had such a hard time in the beginning, and then bringing James in turned out to be the solution. And now this beautiful girl just makes it perfect!

Thanks everyone!! I am so happy with the way everything has worked out. I'm definitely glad I had the opportunity to bring James over until the right grey came along. For anyone in Northern VA, we will all be at the Manassas Petsmart today from 12-3pm :)

:confetti Brilliant! I've been following your and Luna's story from the start and this is the happiest of happy endings (and the best new beginning). Your two hounds look so comfortable together, and big loves to James for being a star.
