SHADOW!

Hef has a blog and bedroom of his own, Bandit is the new dog and thats exciting. At the same time we must remember Shadow the Dog. She is a very good dog. I have to remind Hef's dad to pay attention to Shadow sometimes and Bandit sometimes thinks her name is Shadow. Shadow is still getting used to not being the only dog.
We really thought Shadow would be excited about Bandit but she has been indifferent. Sometimes Shadow likes that their is another dog to shoulder some of the dog responsiblities. Also Shadow is at least 6, if her birthday is acurrate. so she likes to take it easy. Hef's dad took this photo last night, capturing almost all of Shadow's smile.

How do the dogs interact when they're out for a walk or playing at the park (or backyard)? Shadow has always seemed like a mellow dog, maybe she is having trouble adjusting to Bandit's personality/age level.

Shadow is just precious and is probably still trying to figure it all out:)

Awwwwwwww, happy puppy smile!

I agree with Carmen; perhaps Shadow is still trying to figure out what's going on. She might need a little extra reassurance that she is not being replaced or something. Give her some hugs from me and Mickey. :)

Awwww, Shadow is a good dog. I'm a big fan. I think she's probably trying to adjust.

Seems like you've already thought of this, but I think it makes sense to try to treat her like a child who has a new baby sister. Go out of your way to make sure she knows that she is still very much loved and most certainly not being replaced. But i can understand how it's hard for you and Hef's Dad to not get excited and focus on Bandit.

Having a new sibling always takes adjustment and getting used to. Shadow is a good girl. She will be a good big sister to Bandit.

love Shadow's smile... but I'm missing Hef. How is he adapting? Have you introduced him and bandit yet?

Shadow can always come live with Auntie Shell if she feels she needs a little quiet time. I'll even keep lint rollers near my white couch. ;)
xx, shell

I think shadow is just jealous having new dog in the house. I wonder how Hef take the new dog? Don't tell me he also prefer to stay in its rabbit hutch. Oh well it takes time. It is just a matter of adjustment. Shadow looks friendly though.
