Getting to Know Rosie

We recently added a new member to our little Chihuahua family and it has been quite the transition.  First, she was not a welcome guest to a couple of family members although most were very supportive and happy for us.  Being two older adults with an “empty nest” our little dogs are now our whole lives.  However, the decision to add Rosie to our little nest has become more than we bargained for.  As most of us know, puppies require a lot of time and patience which we lose in due time  as we “mature” in age.

Rosie is a little long-haired Chihuahua that we brought into the home at seven weeks of age.  She was born on March 24th and she tries so much to fit in, but her older brother and sister are not always accepting of her.  After all, she is a flighty, very active puppy that does not always go over well with them.  Her activity level is more than they can stand at times.  Although they all get along at times, on their terms of course, fights do break out when they feel they have had enough!

Their is much potential for this little girl because she is very intelligent.  What puppy at seven to eight weeks old would continually use her potty box or ring the bell to go outside to do her business.  Yes, she has had an accident here and there but for the most part has the capability to be trained as a respectable member of our family.  Anyhow who meets her compliment her on her beauty, love her personality and appreciate how smart she is – our little Rosie.  There is still a long road ahead for this little girl.  We have high hopes for more harmony among her and her siblings as she grows out of that constant playful, puppy stage that seems to irritate their regular routine of naps and toys!
