To my great surprise, I have two (girl) dogs in the office again.

Welcome Neo Cana, pictures to follow when I get some batteries in the darned camera.
They had two good walks together and Bella is not curling her lip all the time. Neo is calm, but confused and Bella is confused, but calm. Not exactly what I envisioned (like more time to get the girls to know each other) but she's here and so far, so good.

Well, hop to it, missy!

Congratulations on the new addition. I expect they'll settle down before too long. Just don't give them any treats or food when they're together.

Congrats on the new addition! Can't wait to hear stories and see pictures.
Looking forward to hearing nice stories about new dog.

Neo's really cute. She is black and tan, mostly black, with those adorable tan "eyebrow" marks and a tan muzzle chest and feet. For some reason, she reminds me of a Sheltie sized Rottie. She's got long hair. She needs grooming!
And I'm embarassed to say that I have been using the Millan tssst with the snaping finger and pointing technique and while Bella is used to it, Neo is not. But she got used to it right away. My former favorite "ah" just wasn't doing it.
Neo tried licking Bella's muzzle and at first, Bella was having none of it, but after a few attempts, allowed it. We were distracting both dogs so they wouldn't focus on each other (Bella).
So the girls are each lying at a human's feet.
And I did give each of them a treat after I knew they could sit (not too close and not too far).
Both of them need lots of walks and Neo needs to be trained up to house rules speed.
DH got worried that her humans weren't really looking after her. They really love her, but they can be terribly careless. It turns out he's been having nightmares about this - that's why he decided that today was Neo day.

DH sounds like a great guy. Lucky Neo!

Lucky all of us.
I can't wait for these girls to be friends because they really are so darned cute.

I'm open to any advice and suggestions. I'm a seriously average pet owner and it's been a whole year since we had two dogs and two years since we had three. I've almost forgotten everything.

The last new dog we brought in was a puppy (5-year-old Bella), so that didn't count!
