Pearl is here.
She is a LARGE (not fat,just tall and big boned...and heavy).She thinks she is a lap dog,but boy is she too big for that...hahaha.She is afraid of the cats,but is a little TOO interested in the rodents,so I have to watch that.
She also does not have manners...as in she gets up on tables,digs into the couch (where she is heavy,she almost rips the fabric off) and also doesn't listen to "NO!" or "leave it!".
Actually thats the thing,she might be deaf or going deaf...because she ignores ANYTHING I say and I even attempted to clap and make loud noises and she didn't respond or even look at me...so we will see within the next couple days if she responds to me at all.I had to squirt her with water when she tried climbing into the mouse tank,as she didn't listen to me.
I took her on a short walk,nothing too long as it is pouring.She didn't wanna stay out in it,neither did I.And the neighbour's little dog who just had puppies (her 11th or 12th litter! Thats another story though) was out and attacked Pearl's face (probably being protective,since her pups were in the house) and Pearl didn't do anything,except back away.Thats good though that she doesn't wanna fight with the neighbor's bratty dogs.
I think Pearl is going to be a bit of a challenge,but I am ready for it.
She is definatly not as laid back and calm as Simone is (BTW Simone is in a trial adoption home right now!
)...but I am happy to have her here.She does seem pretty quiet so far...but this is the first night she is here and sometimes dog's act a little different until they are comfortable with their surroundings.
I do not have pictures yet,but it will be tomorrow.
As I am typing this,Pearl is sitting and intently watching the rats.Ronnie has nipped her a couple times now when she sticks her nose in the cage,but she doesn't learn...
