Ruby's introduction to Daniel went perfectly, and he is so happy to have another dog in the house!! Her introduction to the cats went exactly as I anticipated. Maggie and Alice stood their ground, and Dorothy was nowhere to be found. Earlier this morning, Dorothy was initially skulking around the periphery ... but now she's getting a little bit more comfortable.
"It's okay, Dorothy," said Alice, in the chair, "This new dog isn't as scary as I thought it would be."
I am thrilled with the way Ruby is fitting in so far. Granted, it's only been a little over 15 hours at this point ... but this little dog is already worming her way into our family and deep into my heart.
Welcome home, Ruby!!
