oh ya she's so aggressive she just covered me in slobber! i'm already getting kisses!!!! so happy she's not scared here....was affraid the stress of the move would get to her...taking everything nice and slow. Need a large dog crate so i can leave her in the living room while I cook and stuff and the cats can check her out safely till they get used to each other...that's next on the to do list, try maybe next week. Right now chase's room is all hers...and the cats have the rest of the house....slowly slowly....no sudden moves...whew. I was soooo nervous, but now I'm cautiously optomistic! :thumbs up

:D no worries! I actually played a little ball in the backyard with her when I got home from work.... had a leash on her but let it drag on the ground while she fetched. (we don't have a fence on one side of the property) She did really good other than going too far back and getting into the mud! :rolleyes:

I think we've officially bonded, she was laying beside me on the bed just a little bit ago, I was talking to her and she rolled over and proceeded to lick my face thoroughly! And she let me kiss her on the head too! I feel bad for Chase cause she's supposed to be 'his' dog but i'm doing all the bonding...I started taking his phone calls in her room on speaker so she gets used to his voice at least.

And I'm glad to see dog slobber hasn't stopped the kitties from snuggling me too! They're all still coming around for their me time! She really really wants to chase the cats though....she saw Windy when we came in today and I just about couldn't hold onto her....but I got a grip on the leash and made her sit...she whined a bit, but let Windy go.
