Darcy. As in, Mr. (Pants)

The newest member of our huge fur family: Darcy Pants. BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY. (If you don't catch the reference, we were going for Pride & Prejudice.) She is the cutest and the sweetest. We got her last Sunday from a rescue group that comes to PetsMart near us each weekend. She and her litter mates were taken from the pound on the kill list. Her mother, for some reason, was unable to nurse the puppies. When they were found, the pound deemed them "unsaveable" because they were so incredibly malnourished and planned to euthanize all five of them. Then comes in Dream House rescue. They took all 5 puppies.

Two of the litter did not make it, but the three that did were nursed back to health. That's when we come in. She is almost 16 pounds (2 heavier than when we got her a week ago.) and very happy and energetic. The spots you see in some of the pictures are alopecia and are a result of the malnourishment. Other than itching her a little bit, they don't seem to be uncomfortable to her. We are currently treating her with antibiotics and medicated shampoo to hopefully get rid of them as quickly as possible.

The other dogs have taken to her well. It took Guillermo a couple of days to let her into the pack, but a trip to PetsMart with just the two of them solved that problem. They have been playing and cuddling ever since. Even Ella, who is 5.5 pounds, loves to try and test Darcy. Granted, she gets scared and runs away, but they play nonetheless!

Of course, Mak is being an amazing big sister, showing Darcy the ropes and playing with her for hours and hours. She is very gentle with Darcy and loves to wrestle with her. Darcy mimics most of what Mak does and, obviously, that is adorable.
