Sloan's new family

...I think she likes them!
The first meeting was a resounding success, and confirmed for me my feeling that they were exactly the right family for Sloan.
I think she adored lovely Lina, and I also think Lina is exactly the right age to know how to properly treat a little dog like this.

QQ warmed up to Christie (the first time they met, over the holidays, I think Q was a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of strangers, and was not quite as forthcoming).
Sam was just glad to see the last of the invading puppy. Poor guy has had to put up with a lot this year.



It was also nice for QQ to have a little time with Lina...even if it wasn't much. But I'm sure we'll visit them (and Sloan) from time to time when we're in the Vail valley.
Meanwhile, I think Sloan is going to be thrilled with her new home, new family, and new surroundings. I really don't think we could have found a more ideal situation for a little puppy who's life started out on such a traumatic note. Wishing her well.

We are smitten. She is the cutest, funniest, most loving and mellow little dog ever. We are all in love. Maggie is getting along great with her. One cat is hiding, but he'll come around. The other is curious but little Sloan keeps barking at him, so we'll have to teach her about respecting kitties. But she is already becoming comfortable in the house. She adores Lina and loves to sit and cuddle with John and I. Thank you again. We couldn't be happier!!

Oh man! Update: She slept in her new bed between Lina and I (Lina sleeps in our room still sometimes) all night and didn't move or make a peep! She also let Maggie teach her where to pee and poop this morning. (outside!) AND she has been running around and playing and jumping and being the most adorable little thing on four legs! Then she poops out and comes and finds my lap for a peaceful snooze. She's perfect!
