Introducing Rylie!

So we have been looking for a playmate for Bailey. She's seemed really lonely since our neighbor dog Zoey moved away. So Chuck talked me into another dog. I was really hesitant at first, but I still thought it was a good idea. We decided to get a dog from the West Side Animal Leeague in Fort Worth, which is where we got Bailey. We found a cute little collie mix and drove all the way to see her at one of their adoption clinics. Its over an hour drive one way for us! Well turned out she wasn't at the clinic. Her foster mom agreed to meet us, but we couldn't take her home because she had ringworm and was being treated. Which was totally fine, but that was about 4 months ago. We had trouble contacting the lady to check on the dog, and when we did get ahold of her she gave us attitude. So we decided to just look around.

Then I saw an add on Craig's List for Denton Animal Shelter about there puppies that were in danger of euthenasiau. The pretty puppy was one of them. She can't be but 2 months old! She's super cute! They called her Cherry, but we didn't really like that. Even though she is so young she shows just some small signs of abuse. She is scared to death when you hook her to a leash or if you raise your hand just right. But I think since she is so young, we might be able to make her forget about all those bad times. Rylie is some sort of terrier mix according to the vet.
Bailey gets along with her great. Sometimes she seems a little stand offish about her, but I think that is because she is used to being the playful puppy, when now she is the one being pounced on! The play tug of war with BoBo which is awesome, except they have already destroyed it! Bailey seems a little jealous at times, but I think she'll get used to having another dog around soon. They play nonstop. I'm so glad we got Rylie. I love them both so much!
