After we went on vacation and left Rudy home alone and she didn't handle it very well we knew we would be adding another dog to the family. We found this little cutie- Roma. She is a mini golden doodle and will be a medium to small size dog- definitely bigger than Rudy but not as big as a golden retriever.
We picked her up the day after Easter and have been adjusting since. I feel like we have a pretty good handle on things. Anna is definitely loving on her the most- and Isaac is taking a close 2nd. He is just too busy playing with his friends and doing all of his stuff.
The first couple of nights she was up a couple times in the night- but now she is up maybe once and is totally ok with the kennel. Rudy hated the kennel so this is a nice change.
It has been nice adding a pup at this stage of our lives with the kids a little older as they are really big helpers.
I can't forget to mention how much Rudy is loving her new buddy. She was really in a funk after Ozzy was put down. She slept most of the time and was not herself. Since we got Roma her tail wags nonstop, she loves to play and she is always checking on her buddy.
