I wanted to let you know that she is adjusting very well. Much better than we had thought. Gus and her get along real well already. They had their moment last night when we got home and this morning she got a little irritated with Gus, but it was expected (Gus was being a little too nosey).
They have been running all over the house and rough-housing in the family room downstairs while we watch HGTV. They take turns hopping up on the king-size futon to play "King of the Mountain" pouncing and wrestling. I have some cute pictures to share once I get them loaded onto the computer. Frannie also seems to be doing good with house-training. We take her out after she drinks and eats and so far, no accidents. She got excited this morning when she first saw me and did a very tiny submissive pee but not a lot and held the rest for outside. She is also doing excellent with the cat. MUCH BETTER than Gus ever did! She basically leaves Mala alone. They sit and stare at each other but Frannie stays a good distance apart. We went for a nice long walk early this morning and she did great on the leash.
If ever Brian and I go out of town my brother-in-law Jeff comes to watch Gus so this afternoon him and his roommate Eric came over to meet Frannie. She was great with them. Very friendly and since Jeff loves dogs, he immediately took to Frannie. They were cuddling on the couch for a long time while we had tea and chatted. But all in all, it is working out great. I don't have any worries with her and Gus.
She appears to like the hardwood floor much better! We will hear a little "thud" and know she plopped down on the floor for a rest.
She learned how to kiss on command today. All we have to say is, "Kisses!" and her and Gus both plow into us and smother us with puppy kisses. She also was caught kissing Gus this afternoon while he was sleeping. She'll run up and just lick his lips and them run away.
She has pretty much claimed his bed in front of the window. She can rest her head on the windowsill and watch the people walk by.
Last night before bed, Gus, her and Brian all were sharing the couch and the electric blanket so I think she is really fitting in well. We absolutely love her.
