Well, we haven't blogged in a while due to an exciting trip home to Chicago for winter break. We became an aunt and uncle for the first time which was super exciting. Our nephew is a sweet little nugget of love and we were incredibly sad to leave him and his proud new parents.
But we also have really exciting news about our little family...it just got a little bigger! Or, more precisely, 56 pounds bigger!
We're so happy to have Nigel with us. Even though we live in a fairly small apartment in Los Angeles, it feels pretty doable so far. We're still negotiating the specifics of being able to walk two dogs and helping them through the transition. They've been sleeping in their crates and though I really miss cuddling with Maggie at night, I have to say that I have definitely been sleeping better.
Nigel is making the transition like a champ. He's become very comfortable on our couch (yes, we let them snuggle on the couch) and he and Maggie are little play machines!
The only snafu we had was based on human error when we put their food bowls next to each other to eat. The sad result was a short fight that ended in Maggie getting a little scratched up but she'll be fine. The pups have been getting along wonderfully since them.
I can't believe that only three and a half months ago, we were a no-dog household and now we're a two dog household! And obviously, they were the best decisions we've ever made.
