She's here and we like her! Dinah arrived yesterday and we liked each other at first sight! She's reservedly friendly - just the personality type I like. Someone who's not too much into my business. We've even shared the same bed and I think we'll get closer as time goes on. She reminds me a little bit of Tanner, but a more feminine, dainty version. She has the most wonderful wide,toothy smile that makes her nose crinkle. It makes Mom laugh! We had kind of a rough night last night with three in the bed. Mom says we may have to work on different sleeping arrangements tonight. Mom is very excited that she learned to use my potty right away. It saves lots of trips downstairs. She's settling in pretty well, but isn't totally relaxed yet. I'm trying to help her with the elevator - she's pretty skittish about it. It is pretty confusing when you go into a little room,there are strange noises and then you come out in a different place. I'm an old hand at things like elevators - all kinds of transportation, actually. So I can help her with a lot. Like when we go outside, for example. She's a little nervous and has to stop and look at things a lot. I show her there's no need to be nervous - I just show her where the good sniffing spots are. She didn't want to eat at first, so I shared one of my favorite treats with her - cottage cheese. That whetted her appetite so she started eating dog food. We have a couple of things to work out, but she's fitting in pretty well. I'm glad for the company and the increased activity.

You are such an sweet and kind dog, helping Dinah to feel comfortable. Geese, you even gave her some of your treat! How good of you is that? Then, showing and telling her the ropes about going out! You should be an ambassador!

Hey Patch, Dinah is cute and those loooooong legs, wow! Did she ever do any racing? My greyhound cousins were all former racers. It is so great that you're showing her the ropes. She's lucky to have you for a brother. I have to admit I wasn't the best brother to Casey when he first came, but we're tight now. You two will have so much fun and she'll be there when you mom is away. If your mom puts anything up high to keep it away from you, Dinah can reach it for you! BOL!
