Default Hope is proud to announce that Ruby (her new sister) is home!

2.5 hour trip each way and we bought a red fawn baby home. She is 14 weeks old today and weighs 1 lb. 15 oz. Her name is Ruby Faith. She is just 2.5 weeks younger than Hope.

Both girls got baths tonight and will be taking Ruby to the Vet tomorrow for her first check up!

She has a bit of black sabling but I do not know if it will last or fade. She and Hope actually look alike but they are now sisters but not bio sisters.

She is not quite adjusting as simply as Hope. She sat up the entire car ride home which broke my heart. She has pottied once but I cannot get her to eat or drink yet. We just got home an hour or so ago.

Of course, Hope wants to play and was jumping on her and batting at her and wagging her tail like crazy. She slept the entire way home so she is good..haha!

She finally is resting in a blanket in my arms. She is precious. I hope she will adjust well!

Here is a quick pic I took. More will come (um, yeah!) in the upcoming days!

Thanks to all who helped us select her. I appreciate all of the encouragement, PM's and help more than you will know!

Well, my husband wanted Tracy's Brody but we could not find a beauty his coloring anywhere!

But, yes, this one is the one he chose from the 3 in the photo I posted yesterday. We had the hardest time choosing. They looked so similar. Blue Fawn, Red Fawn with more black sable and then Ruby who is going to be very irish setter/cocker spaniel/golden retriever colored. We would like her to keep her light black sable but okay if not.

I am just worried that she will settle in and of course I want her to eat and drink. Hope-who is much more social-ate and drank the minute we set her down when we brought her home. This girl is older than Hope was when we brought her home though so I know the transition will take time. She is just so small I want to beef her up not have her lose!

I mixed their food and Hope is picking Ruby's out and dropping them on the floor. So much for worrying about upsetting both tummies!

Yay! What a gorgeous little girl! Congrats. I love the name you chose too, my sister named one of her daughters Ruby or I would have used it by now
How sweet that Hope is already wanting to play. Sometimes it can take a few days for them to adjust, Im sure Ruby will be more than happy to oblige once shes settled. Thats definitely a big perk I can see in adding a second pup while your first is still young, rather than being jealous and grouchy theyre just thrilled to get a playmate! Cant wait for the pics

Congratulations on beautiful little Ruby..I think she is gorgeous! Do hope you have some NutraCal on hand if she isn't eating and drinking.. It has been a life saver for us in the past with tiny ones who wouldn't eat. Gotta keep that sugar level up..lol Blessings,
