NEW (fur) BABY!!!
My family adopted the most precious 10-year old Dalmatian yesterday! Her name is Roux. She is amazing, we all love her so much!
We have known Roux since she was a baby. She belonged to my brother and his wife. She was my "niece" before my niece (then nephew, nephew, niece) was born. Over the past year she has lost a "fur sister" and her family is now splitting up. She has been very loved, but very stressed and has lost a TON of weight. But, she hasn't lost her spirit!
When my brother told me she was looking for a new home, I knew she belonged here. Mr. Mama didn't immediately agree. He suggested she come over for a playdate with our dogs, and within 3 minutes he told me we needed to buy a bigger bed. She instantly became besties with our Labrador, and the Pomeranian only tried to eat her face off twice, so it was a done deal!
She is the best girl! Ridiculously sweet and laid back! She's the first one to "sit" for a treat, barely barks, hasn't piddled anywhere and she just FITS! We are well on our way to spoiling her rotten!
