The girl is home!

We picked up Tarot today! She is so sweet and just a little love bug. We're still trying to decide if we are going to keep her name as Tarot or if we are going to come up with something else...She was spayed today, so we haven't had a chance to see her real personality yet because she's been asleep almost all afternoon. She should be feeling better tomorrow, and once we get a view of her personality, we'll have a better idea of what we want to name her. Sam and I are voting for Ali, maybe Lucy.

When we brought her in, Jack got all excited and gave her kisses. She laid down on the floor to try to get some sleep, and sweet Jack brought out all his toys so they could play. Poor girl was so tired she decided the only way she could sleep was to crawl under the futon. Jack kept checking on her to make sure she was okay and to give her kisses....and of course to see if she wanted to play!

This little girl is going to need lots of love...poor thing is extremely skinny from all the stress of living in the shelter and has a sort of "beaten dog" manner of walking with her head down and her tail between her legs. I'm not sure if it's because she's still all doped up on the anesthesia or if this is her personality. We're hoping it's just because of the that...If it's not because of that, we are sure we can give her the happy, healthy, loving home that she needs so she can thrive. We're also pretty sure Jack will bring her out of her shell since he was a rescue puppy too and is a very happy and playful dog!

Here are some pics of the newest edition to our family!

We brought Jack's car harness for Tarot to wear home, but she is so much smaller than him that it didn't fit at all and was uncomfortable. Sam sat with her on his lap for most of the way home, but then she decided the area where his feet were was where she wanted to be.
Jack was very excited to see his new sister again. I'm pretty sure Tarot was sleeping while getting her loving from Sam! Every time she came up to any of us for some loving, she closed her eyes! Look at how much skinnier she is than Jack! Her back legs have nothing to them while Jack's back legs are pure muscle. She does have a tail that waggles when we call her name.
This is the girl after she crawled under the futon. She's all ears and legs!
She's thinking about coming out and being with us...still not sure she wants to leave the safety of her little nest....well, at least not completely!
Look! That's my new sister!!!! Jack kept checking on her to see how she was doing. He brought all his toys out of the bedroom and into the living room to get her to play, but the poor girl just wanted to sleep, sleep, sleep!
