Today is going to be a big change for us all, but particularly for you two. You gals know how much I love you, right? I do. I really, REALLY do. Picasso, you and I have been together for years...ever since Chico, when you came home to live in the pink house with me. Remember when we lived with the German Shepherd? (Hold onto that thought.) Frida, since you've been with us the last 2 years or so, you've brought such good times, and AdRi adores you. I mean, look at you two! You're beautiful, smart, and such great gardening buddies. And, good snugglers, even though you, Picasso, are a pillow hog.
Please keep all of this in mind, girls, when I bring home your new friend today. IT WON'T CHANGE A THING OF HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU TWO. She's just a new member of our family. Yes, yes, yes, I know she's a dog, well, actually, she's a puppy, but as the genes have it, you two will most likely always be bigger than her.
I mean, look at her. You will always be in charge of household. THAT WILL NOT CHANGE. Be patient with her. She might want to play with your toys. She might want to play with you. I hope you two won't stay under the bed too long. You're going to have to come out and meet her. IT WILL BE OKAY.
You met her sister Ginger last weekend (and her wonderful mom, Recovering Straight Girl). Well, you kind of met her when she poked her nose under the bed where you were hiding. Remember? Remember how tiny she was? Well, our new friend is Ginger's sister. We haven't named her yet. Maybe you can help name her? Would that make you feel better about it?
And Frida. I'm okay that you've adopted the puppy's new bed. You can have it. We'll get the puppy another one since you took ownership of this one the minute we put it down.
Okay, so I think that's it. It's going to be okay, girls. You'll still get special time with us, there's just a new distraction that will arrive in our house tonight. Have faith that we'll all get along!
