The dog formerly known as Preggy Neighbor Dog, (now Diva Dog), is home. Or should I say, she's now officially a part of the family here.
According to the neighbors, she wouldn't take to her puppies, and they were worried not just for the puppies, but for her because she wouldn't eat or drink any water while they had her at their house. When they tried to interact with her, she'd turn her head away from them.
So yesterday at 8 am, there was a knock on the front door. It was neighbor mom, and there was Diva dog on the ground beside her. I opened the door and the lil Diva went bonkers. She ran in the house and started jumping and dancing and trying to talk to me - rawrawrawr. She's a very hyper girl to start, but when I picked her up, she went completely still in my arms and started grunting softly when I rubbed her ears. Pure contentment. I couldn't believe how excited she was to see me. Neither was neighbor mom. She'd never seen her sit still before.
Today I have to move Diva's dog house into the fenced area of the back yard. Yesterday was more about getting her used to the house, and it seems she's taking to it quite well. She has taken over Pitbull's doggy bed and squeaky toy, and growls when he comes near. Pitbull doesn't quite know how to act. He was "schnoo-ing" at me last night because he wanted to get in his bed but he was too scared to go near her. Oh, my vicious guard dog.... :P I had to get an old quilt out of the back closet and toss it on the floor for him, and oy, but he pouted on me while I was trying to write! Such sad eyes. So it's doggy bed shopping today. And I'll have to buy Diva a squeaky of her own so he can get his "baby" back. All this, of course, after I schedule Diva dog's vet appointment.
Now for the writerly bits....
I didn't get much accomplished yesterday. It wasn't easy to keep Minibeast calm with a new pet in the house. I only managed to sit down with the wip after he went to bed, and I gotta change that today. I want to get the rough draft for the summer menage story completed by tonight. That way, I can start red penning tomorrow. I have a deadline on it for the end of the month, and with it so close to Easter and Spring Break, I need to do as much as possible before I have both kids in the house. It's not easy to write the naughty bits with squabbling kids fighting over the TV in the next room. Srsly. *_*
