|Whew, we have had a lot of this situation at our house...In fact, number 8, Kona just moved in 5 weeks ago.. He is just a baby at 10 weeks old.. He can be a little annoying with all that "puppy energy and curiousity" but Bandy who is 11 months old, tends to him and is teaching him the ropes.
Rio and Fancy came together, 10 years ago, brother and sister.
I moved in 3 years ago when they were 7... and Fancy was real patient with me, but Rio was a little grumpy.. He came around and we are good friends now. Cocoa was 3 when I came and she wanted to "mother" me...
Buster moved in when I was a year old, and I liked him right away.. We played and are best buds! In fact, I taught Buster all the rules of the house.
Spikey came to live with us 11 months ago as a baby too. He is quite frisky and gets in trouble alot... Buster and I are still trying to teach him stuff.. He loves to wrestle with me and Buster..
Bandy came only 6 weeks after Spikey... Boy he was a tiny little guy, only 5 weeks old and had to be handfed. He also has a "gimpy" leg from a birth injury to his shoulder, so mom made sure we were all extra sweet to him. Since he was so pampered as a baby, he is super spoiled now... We pretty much let him have his way around here.
Kona arrived last and is only 10 weeks old now. As I said, Bandy is training him... For all Bandy's spoiled ways, for some reason he just adopted Kona... Mom was pleasantly surprised..
Mom always uses a playpen when bringing in a new baby.. That way we get used to him and play with him for short intervals.. Also, he doesn't get stepped on when we run and play in the house! She also gives us lots of attention when the baby is out with us. She sits in the floor and loves on us while the baby is running around getting in everybody's way...
Chis do well with other chis, mom says.. and bringing in a puppy has not be difficult at our house...but we aren't too fond of other grown chis...
