At last, the beautiful Cordelia has arrived from Greece. For those that don't know, she was one of the dogs that I couldn't leave behind after working voluntarily at a shelter there for a few months earlier this year.
The lovely Josephine, formerly her friend at the shelter, has been with me for three weeks. She's currently appalled and busily guarding me, the sofas, the food and water and everything else that she thinks is hers but is actually mine. I'm torn between excitement that they are HERE, both HERE and SAFE, and sheer terror that they are going to loathe each other ever more.
Stories of acquiring your second dog and how they settled in, please? And useful hints and tips for establishing a peaceful household? I've called in the reinforcements so that there will be at least one person per dog in the next few minutes but I've only ever had one dog at a time and this is really new territory for me now.
Somebody pat my head.
