My old nursing pillow has come back to life as the dog's perfect curl up bed. The fold-n-go has been the perfect pen and our old baby blankets are getting used again.
It has been great to watch the kids take some responsibility. Everyone has to take a turn with dog duty. They all know how to get her to pee and poop in the right spot, and if she doesn't they know how to clean it up. They know to give her toys when she starts chewing fingers. They can give her food and water and make sure to police her out of unwanted areas with a firm "no."
We've been getting her used to wearing sweaters and going on walks. Tons-o-fun. Even Adrie is getting used to her--although she prefers the dog's company best when it's asleep.
Now if I could just figure out what to do with her when we go out of town....
