Meet Angel, the newest member of our family.
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.
