Before O came along there were already 2 very special little people in our lives. We were already parents to our lovely Lhasa Apso’s and as they are both female they become known as “the girls”.
Mo, the gorgeous blonde, is getting on a bit. She’ll be 10 in November and gets tired easily. You will mostly find her chilling out upstairs in her bed in our room, trying to keep out of O’s way I think.
Rox is the opposite, she will be wherever you are, demanding to be sat on your knee. Or at the front window keeping guard. She’s 8 in a couple of months but still has the same energy as a pup.
For a long time they were the centre of our world but when you bring home a baby things change. They have had to get used to being shushed because O was napping, Rox has had to get used to sharing her toys as O wants to play fetch with her (she hates sharing her toys!), and they’ve had to get used to the house being a lot more hectic.
We both feel guilty that they don’t always get the undivided attention they deserve, so yesterday as O napped we all found ourselves in our bedroom. We spent half an hour just stroking, and cuddling our girls and they loved the quality time. Last night instead of heading straight to bed Mo came and cuddled up with me on the couch, with Rox down the other end. A lovely evening spent with our original family of four!
