With all the excitement caused by the new puppy, it’s been important to make sure Fly gets some attention as well. As Whiskey got older and had more problems, she got the bulk of the attention. We don’t want Fly getting depressed about Trix since she already misses her bossy buddy Whiskey.
The new puppy around the house is Trix, a 10 month old Border Collie/Australian Shepard mix. Lots of energy and self centered like only a puppy can be. Fly gets along with her well, although she has had to explain to Trix about keeping to her own food bowl. Trix, on the other hand, doesn’t understand why everyone doesn’t want to play with her 23 hours per day. She’ll start pestering Fly who will just get up and walk away when she’s not interested.
