Meet Angel, the newest member of our family.
Technically we have a week to decide whether or not to keep her, but I think the decision has been made! She has already managed to worm her way into our hearts.
As I mentioned before, she has such a sweet temperament. Pretty laid back and calm. Maggie can be pretty dominant and pushy, but Angel is not really intimidated. They have an uneasy truce going right now, but I don't think it will be long before they'll be playing together. Yesterday we set up a crate in the dining room for her and Maggie managed to open the door, crawl in and go to sleep! She's more annoyed than anything else. But there's been a surprisingly low level of aggression. In fact, this afternoon Maggie patiently watched while Angel chewed on a bone. As soon as Angel got up and walked away, Maggie took the opportunity to sneak over and carry the bone away! But at least she did wait until Angel was done.
I weighed Angel and she is 27 lbs. Maggie is larger than she is and is only 22 lbs. I think Angel should only weigh about 20 lbs., so she is carrying about 1/3 more weight than she should. We've started the diet and exercise program. Maggie can go 2 miles or more without getting winded, but poor Angel was beat after only 1/2 mile! But we'll get there and it will be great seeing her get healthy.

Yeah! She looks like such a sweetie. Can’t wait to meet her. 🙂
Congratulations! – to everyone! It will be fun hearing how it all works out. Sounds like Maggie has already accepted her – with just a tad bit of reservation. Only to be expected.
But – I have one question. What does one do when a 27LB dog has had enough after 1/2 mile? With Sofee, I just pick her up and carry her, or she rides in the cargo area of BG’s stroller. But….. how do you manage with Angel?
She’s a cutie! Lewey says WOOF!
Angel looks like she’s a corgie? Sounds kind of like how we ended up with 2 cats.
Angel is a beautiful dog, even with the extra pounds.
It’s great that she found a new family to care about her. She’s going to feel so much better when she’s a reasonable weight.
What a sweet face!
What a face! (And body)! I hope the uneasy truce between Angel and Maggie grows into doggy friendship.
Congratulations! How exciting.
Meant to say in my other comment, I know someone who was born in one of the painted ladies.
She’s a cinderella girl for sure. She has found a forever home. She is so lucky….you too!
