Simba and The Need for Little Sister GSP

Hi. Simba here! Mum rescued my youngest sister, Luna.  Luna is one year old and very cute.  Mum fell in love with her at first sight. We invited her over to meet with all of us to make sure we all liked each other.  The visit was a great success.  Luna is easy going and very curious. Since I’m a senior, 14 years old, I like to just sit and relax next to my mum most of the time.  Meanwhile, Gypsy who is 7 years doesn’t like playing and running by herself.  She’s used to wrestling around with me and I get too sore playing rough these days. Needless to say, Gypsy has put on a few midlife pounds around the mid-section. We’re all hoping that Luna will get Gypsy moving and playing again, in turn letting me relax and enjoy my old age. Luna is smart and a quick learner.  Gypsy and I taught her how to use the doggie door with just two tries. She has not had any accidents in the house.  She likes her crate and uses it for eating until she learns that we each have our own bowl. Mum watched her for a few weeks and decided that she doesn’t need to be crated during the day while mum is at work because she follows Gypsy’s and my lead, keeping her out of trouble. Although mum didn’t say it out loud, I know she had another reason for bringing Luna into our family.  I am getting up there in age and Gypsy has only known life as my sister; she’s never been on her own. Mum hopes that this will give Gypsy time to bond with Luna without becoming an only child.  Gypsy and I are very connected. We do everything together and she’s always right next to me. She has more of a bond with me than mum. I, on the other hand, had 7 years alone with mum. I love being attached to mum’s hip at all times. It’s the best feeling in the world. I wuv mum.

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.
