Luna And The Other GSPs

One year ago, we adopted one year old Luna. She has joined her two GSP sisters. Simba is 15 years old and has been with me since she was 8 weeks old. Gypsy was rescued at 10 weeks old. She is a GSP and Treeing Walker Coonhound who is 7 years old. As I mentioned in the last post, Gypsy who loves to eat, has been putting on weight over the last couple of years. I have been careful in not allowing her to eat Simba’s food in addition to her own. After testing her thyroids, the vet finally put her on a special food to help speed up her metabolism. Between the new prescription food and Luna’s insistence on playing with her, I am happy to say that Gypsy has lost some weight and has also become more active. When Luna first joined us, Gypsy would just roll over onto her back and play like that. Now she is up on her feet and wrestling around with Luna. She has begun to trot around the yard but not yet a full on gallop. Simba and Gypsy welcomed Luna right from the start. She fit in like a puzzle piece. Each has her place in my life, in the home, and in each other’s life. Luna and Gypsy play non-stop and both have an unshakeable respect for Simba. Simba will supervise and sometimes barks them a warning. All love to sleep together and cuddle. Luna shows no preference on which one she will sit on and neither Simba or Gypsy complain. Other than digging in the yard, Luna has followed all the house rules. She somehow knows what she is allowed to play with (their toys) and what is not (my stuff). Each has their own personality. It has been so much fun watching and observing them. Simba is serious, responsible, and very empathetic. Gypsy is not non of those things, lol. She is aloof, playful, and an escape artist. Luna is happy, bubbly, and cuddly. Each one of them is just perfect in their own way. Each one makes me laugh every day. I have to admit being a little worried about the whole adjustment of bringing Luna in, but it has been a smooth transition from two to three.

About Simba's Mom

I was born and raised in California, lived in Pennsylvania for several years, and have recently moved to Delaware. I have gone from being a teacher for 20 years to a blogger and now back to teaching but still blogging. I have a great dog named Simba. Simba is a German Shorthaired Pointer. Life with Simba is an adventure every day. I have had dogs my entire life but I have learned most about dogs living with Simba. German Shorthaired Pointers really do become your best friend. They become extremely attached and that is why they say they have the Velcro phenomenon. Simba now has a sister 8 years younger and her name is Gypsy.
