How soon before the new dog stops lactating? Also what about a t-shirt with your scent on it tied to the new dog's neck?

I don't know what I would do. I honestly think I would give the dog up rather then stir up the peace, but I'm a one dog household(he's got only child syndrome)
My dogs are territorial with their boundary, and if there are dogs on the other side they do get worked up (since they can't see or get to the other dog....though if they did, they would not want to hurt it so much as play with it, I think).

Yeah, serious pangs of guilt about putting all my current animals "through this" - when I used to see other people do it, I always wondered if it was fair to do? I still don't have an answer on the fairness of it, but I'm watching closely to see if anyone gets jealous, upset, etc.

Rather than repeat the update here, I'll direct you to the original "Urgent Dog" thread where I gave an update earlier tonite. The short of it is the meet & greet was a success and the Little Pit is home with us tonite. We're going to take it day by day and see how/if she fits in .

Don't know....the vet techs were not sure when I asked today, I'll have to ask the vet. The shot he gave her speeds it along, but I would guess it still takes at least a week or so???

My female noticed the breasts full of milk and sniffed a few times, but did not seem to have the bad reaction that the vet warned me could be possible - it seemed more of a curiosity than anything (and I don't think my male even noticed at all).

The encounter went well and the Little Pit is home with us tonite......sorry that I have 2 threads going (confusing), but I put the whole story on the original thread - the Urgent Dog one - in case you want to hear how it went, you might want to take a look there .

I read it!
I think you rock! ...yay for doggies! I am so excited for you!
cody isn't aggressive either ...he just wants to meet the dog, but his body language sometimes says otherwise. he's also barking when we see dogs on walks, but once he meets them, he's happy(we make him sit or down before he meets them so he doesn't learn that barking gets him what he wants).

cody can clear a baby gate too! ...we call him Cody-Roo because he jumps like a KangaROO!

good luck! Keep us posted!
new dogs are fun!

...so does she get a real name soon? "little pit" is kinda cute tho!
