Bobbie the Bobtail Puppy

 To say "good with kids" would be an understatement. This precious little mutt (no telling her makeup) is the friendliest little girl! She just wants to LOVE everyone, but especially my daughter. Usually our foster puppies stay in my room, but this one has set up residence in Maggie's room. That's a good thing, because Teddy Bear (aka Teddy Monster) is the only one who doesn't like her. She did fine with Mom & Dad's whippets, and she did fine with Butterscotch the cat, who even rubbed up against her chest to let her know she was duly owned, and she even did well with the guinea pig. But Teddy is having none of this friendly dog stuff.
This is not how we expected things to go, and I was mightily disappointed because I thought she'd be a great playmate for Teddy. But we're working with it as best we can. Our little bobtail already has an appointment to check out a forever home this afternoon, but in the meantime our house is divided by a baby gate and Bobbie is lapping up as much attention as she can in the little girl bedroom.

Here she is crashed out on the end of Maggie's bed - that's one tired little girl after two very long days of transport. (I would say two tired little girls, but you know Maggie is not tired - ever.)
