Eva's first OUTING!

Little Eva had her first visit to my sister's place as I would like to introduce her to new places, people, animals and other new things in a positive and non-threatening way. I thought my sister's house could be an ideal place to start it as there are many people and dogs over there; there are my parents, two little girls and my sister with two Shi Tzus and one mixed breed as well.

Ready, Set, GO!

Loads of yelps were the welcome notes from the two Shi Tzus when we arrived but little Eva wasn't impressed by them at all. She was clinging to me tightly when we entered the house and was unusually quiet for a long time. She looked a bit lost and worried and stayed close with me in the beginning. I think it's because it's the first time she saw so many different people and other doggies around her and on top of that, it was a foreign place to her.

She even hid her head under me while her butt was being sniffed :)) by the doggies, of course.

However, little Eva was finally relaxed after her meal and showed her deep interest in the house. She even marked her territory with TWO PEES! She started to make contact with the dogs and the children, roaming around in the house, checking every corner of the living room and playing happily with my sister too.

Hello, I'm Eva

New friends, Brian and Bob
Just a little note here. Bob, the guy on the right was actually Rosie's first ever dog, her 4th birthday present from my sister. However, at that time, I didn't allow dogs in the house and so my sister kept him in her house. Now, 10years later, just look at me, I have two shelties, and both are allowed in the house!
Brian was mistreated badly by his previous owner and so my sister took him in and now he's a very happy dog, although rather skittish at times. 

When we went back to the car, Eva didn't want to come home!
Look at her, trying to escape.

When we reached home, we were given very big welcome-home kisses and sniffs from our beloved 3.

Everybody asked Eva where she had been...
ahh but it's our little secret !!

I think we had a very good day today as my princess Eva is still sleeping soundly next to her mama. She's exhausted!!!

Although I'm not sure you would call that sleeping!

Good for you, getting Eva out and about. That is a wonderful way to get her socialized.

What a big day for Eva!

Hi Eva - thanks for visiting my blog. My goodness, you are just the cutest!!!

I noticed that your mummy Hana was shaved in the pictures in the last post - is that because it is very hot where you live? Which country do you live in?

It sounds like a very successful first outing for little Eva!! Your sister's dogs are cuties, too. I'm glad that Brian has a wonderful forever home at your sister's.

Hi Honey, I live in Malaysia, a very hot country which is really close to the equator and the weather here is just hot, hotter and hottest. I wish I could see and play in the snow like many of my blog friends too. My mummy Hana has her coat shaved because of the post natal hormone changes which caused her lost her coat seriously and had very bad flaky patches all over her body. But don't worry, the vet said my mummy Hana is recovering now and she might just need one more month to be fully recovered and her beautiful coat will be back soon. Hooray!
