We welcomed a new member of the family to our home on Sunday, little Lulu Pug! An opportunity came up for us to go & rescue this dinky little dot, I was pretty hesitant as I was scared it would be a scam/go wrong/Tilly would hate her but Dom was really keen on the idea. I'm so thankful he managed to persuade me because it's been one of the best decisions we've made. We had a long drive to go save Lulu but it was completely worth it, I'm not gonna go into details about her previous life as we want to focus on giving her the life she deserves & not dwell on her past. Lulu is in her forever home with us now & we are so in love. Tilly Pug is obsessed, in fact a bit too obsessed but we are getting there & I'm sure they'll be inseparable soon! With Tilly Pug being an only child for two years I assumed she wouldn't adjust very well to another dog in the house, but I feel like a super proud pug mum because she's been really good! We've had a few lil arguments but nothing major or anything to worry about. We were after introducing another pug into our lives soon anyway, I've been desperate for Tilly to have a sister but when the time actually came I was nervous it wasn't going to work so I'm really pleased it's gone well! Pugs are such sociable dogs, I didn't really need to worry!
Let me tell you a little more about Lulu... She's almost 6 years old (her birthday is 21st August so watch out for a Birthday Party post!), she weighs 6kg, Tilly who weighs in at 8.3kg looks like a beast compared to her! Lulu gets extremely excited when it's din dins time & does a really cute dance whilst she waits. I think her grey chin is the cutest & she has the sweetest personality ever, she's very placid & chilled.
Please excuse Tilly's eye boogers, she was in diva mode when I was doing this photoshoot & wouldn't let me wipe them away! I love this photo so much though, it captures there personalities so well, with Tilly being a cheeky monkey & Lulu sitting all cute & patient!
It's early days so I'm not quite a pro yet, but if anyone wants any tips on how to settle a new dog into your home, let me know!
