The picture on the left is Phil with Tomlin the day we got her. The picture on the right is Phil with Rooney, on Saturday.
Rooney is very easy going; he simply goes with the flow. Tomlin is having a little bit of an issue sharing her toys, but we are working through it and they are getting along very well. Our nights are very long with a new fur baby in the house but everyone is still alive lol. I’ve noticed some differences already between the two pups. Tomlin was not a chewer; she chews her toys, but has never tried anything else. Rooney, on the other hand, chews everything. His favorite thing to chew on are electrical cords. Don’t worry, we are watching him like a hawk!
Tomlin meeting RooneyChecking out her new brother. Tomlin is not a big dog at all, but standing next to 4.5lb Rooney makes her look like a giant lol
I worked from home yesterday to help Rooney and Tomlin adjust a little bit more, but classes resume today. I’m wondering how long I can keep up with my lectures, grading, and research while being sleep deprived. hmmmmm lol Hopefully for at least a month or so until we get a system going around here. Rooney will be going to work with me for the next few weeks too, so I think that will help. But anyways, for now, this is what our house looks like:
running through paper towels like crazy
lots of teamwork and shift work
chasing puppies to make sure everyone is getting along
the camera flash is going crazy
napping when Rooney naps
running through food faster
toys sprawled all over the floor
two of everything: bowls, toys, blankets, beds, etc.
It’s a crazy time, but a fun time too. Lots of laughing and smiles.
“No one better disrupt my brother’s nap!”Rooney likes to eat with part of his body in the bowl lolTomin is teaching Rooney already. Lesson one: begging!
