Lola has a new brother...
and she's not real happy about it. My husband and I bought a new yorkie yesterday. He is almost 8 weeks old and his name is Chewy (Chewbacca, really.) Anyway, I am so concerned about our little Lola. She is always the sweetest, most loving dog. She seems nervous and upset ever since we brought Chewy home. He tries to play with her and she tries a little too, but it seems like she is not really wanting to share her momma and papa with her new sibling. I am worried sick. I want to put Lola first, but I know my husband wouldn't let me give the puppy back. He says give it a couple of weeks, but I don't want Lola's personality to change so drastically. Does anyone have any experience with this? Can you offer any advice? Thanks in advance.

Yes, this is normal. She'll adjust, just make sure and give her as much (if not more) attention than Chewy; that way she knows she is still 1st and you love her no matter what cute puppy is around! Also when you greet the pups; pick her up 1st lavish her with attention, then the puppy second. . . it's just like a young child with a new sibling. . .

Congrats! So exciting. I'm getting another one in a few weeks and I have the same concerns. He's met her twice. Once for a short time and another time for a bout an hour. They seemed to get along so I hope transition will go well and he can teach her the ropes. Good luck and post pictures soon

You guys should be just fine... at least Lola is playing with him a little... Last year I brought my Lola into Toby's life -- and I seriously thought I would have to give her back. He would not hardly look at her -- and wouldn't give me any loves either. He was just mad! Toby was 5 years old -- and I just gave him the first attention when I got home -- when they got a treat -- he got the first one, and I also gave him special cuddle time. (I still do all these after about 9 months) It took a couple weeks before he would start playing... and now, they go at it all the time! He's frantic when he can't see her (at the groomers) but settles down when they bring her back into his sight. It was the best thing that I ever did for Toby -- but for that first couple of weeks, I thought I'd done the wrong thing!
Just give your Lola lots of loves... give her treats and pets first... and let her know that she's your special girl! Let us know in a couple of weeks how it's going!!! I bet they'll be best friends soon!

OMG you found one! No pictures?? May I ask where you got him? You know I just got another girl-Gemma?
Anyway....Vixxen took about a month to warm up to Truffles! She was always the only spoiled princess so she was not too happy! I didn't force them together. In fact, for almost a month truffles slept in her own xpen and not with us, as I wanted Vixxen to know she was still "number1" - of course they all sleep with us now
I also tried to take only Vixxen with me on short errands so again, she felt special.
Good luck! I think they will be buddies How old is Lola now?
God Bless our troops
R.I.P. Sweet Lexxi Girl - you were taken too soon, we love you always

Congrats! I got little Mari 5months ago and Kodak my 3yr old could give a s@*t! He is so cold to her sometimes that I have to keep them seperated. He only wants to play when he wants to play. I hear her yelp because he knocks or bites the crap outta her. She gets right back up and comes back for more and she bites him to. I can't wait till she's older to get him back for all these months he mistreated her. He became very territorial but he's opening up now. She truly is a pest, but he has no choice but to deal with it, we love em both to death. Maybe one day they'll get along enough to get a cute photo of them loving each other.

Congratulations!!! Don't worry she will adjust. WHen I got Pixie in January I didn't think Cali would mind as she was use to Maya who I had first. Boy was I wrong. Cali was so upset she wouldn't come near me or Pixie and Pixie was 13 months old and raised with 2 other dogs in her pen so she was a fighter and wanted to play. For days I thought I did the wrong thing but fell so in love with Pixie I couldn't give her back. But after a few weeks Cali started to play with her and after about 6 weeks they sleep togther and stay by each other. There are times when I still think Cali would prefer Pixie not be here but they do keep each other company. Hang in there it does get better.
