"So already BOTH Pearl and Opal have mastered the dog door...out AND in. And it took what? Like an hour?" "Have to give the Army some credit, WD, the girls just followed the pack until they got it.
"And Pearl is the outgoing one. VERY unusual for a mill dog lady. She is already following dad around devotedly. She almost made me jealous with her boldness this morning in umping up on your bed." "Don't be jealous, Sweet Love," I told her. "No, it was just so cool to see her so comfortable on her first day. And I had to laugh when she jumped up and tried to counter surf the sausage you were slicing to go in the cassoulette." "Let's not forget how well she did on the bedtime walk with Bella and Benson. I thought Dad was bonkers attempting all three but all went well I heard."

"Opal is more like Ferguson," White Dog commented. "She likes to know what everyone is doing but she is shy about joining in. She kind of likes that she has places to sit in the sun or be by herself." "I really hope that she and your brother hit it off and find that they like each other for company. I think it would be good for both. Maybe as Ferg starts feeling better."
|YoYoMa with Opal and Pearl|
Note: We put Opal in the bathroom so that she could take her time and not be vultured at breakfast; Sachi routinely eats HIS breakfast in the bath tub because otherwise he scarfs his down and then tries to steal everyone else's meal. When he is done he jumps up and down crying to be released.
"Opal has a more reserved personality and it may take her longer to be comfortable; maybe she will never be the bubbling type Pearl is," I said. "But you know what is so wonderful, momma," WD pointed out. "The way the two look after each other. It is odd because they were not bonded to even fostered together, but last night they slept together and they always seem to check on each other." "That is so heart warming, I agree," "and they both seem to love playing in the yard with Zsofia and Sachi and Bella." "And it is only the first day."
I kissed White Dog on her head. "What I love best is that no matter who comes and joins our family that it is always a perfect fit. You have grown a beautiful Army, Little White Dog of My Heart."
