Lexie is too cute! Congrats on the addition. We just adopted a friend for our Gigi, a border mix this weekend. What we were told was that we had to keep Gigi the dominant one. We are supposed to accomplish this by speaking to gigi first, feeding her first, etc. We did pick a dog w/ a calmer attitude than gigi, she is a corgi/cocker mix about the same age. So far so good. I have seen lots of play, w/ one or the other wanting to stop play fighting but the other not noticing which led to bark or too, but no nipping. Of course, since ours was always alone and not grieving for a lost playmate may mean its a different story. Good luck and congrats.
Uh oh. I've been trying to make Shyann be nicer, maybe I need to back off and let her be dominant. I'm just afraid one is going to get hurt.:shock:
