Well after all the stress and worry about introducing the new puppy to storm it was a complete breeze!
I left the puppy in the crate that he came in and let storm sniff him, this was quite a mission as my two young kids had just arrived home from daycare and also wanted to meet the new addition. Anyway, the puppy barked a bit at storm but storm was running in circles and drooling she was so excited. After a few minutes of letting them calm down I put storm leash on and opened the crate. I told storm to sit next to me and I sat next to her and gave her some affection and got her attention off the pup. After a few minutes of this (and giving the kids warning looks if they tried to interfere:-) ) the pup started coming out of the crate to say hi. I kept a tight hand on the leash and kept storm sitting while the pup sniffed her.....
After a few minutes of this, and my kids complaining for dinner I took storm off her leash and continued with what I needed to do. This was last week Thursday and there has been absolutely no aggression whatsoever from Storm. She has been amazing!
The pup jumps on her, chews her ears HARD! sleeps all over her and really bites her legs and tail very hard and storm just gently moves out of the way! She pinned the pup on the floor once in play and the pup got such a fright but then storm licked him better.
I love the new pup but am so proud of storm for her behaviour, even though now she is being a bit naughty and chewing things again!
I promise I will post pics soon, I keep forgetting my camera at home! Thanks all for you support!
Can't wait for pics - glad the into went so well.
Sounds like the introduction went well and they're getting along great.
I wouldn't be too surprised if Storm gets fed up with all of the biting and reprimands the pup (name?) a bit.
Congratulations. I bet she´s happy to have a new friend
Glad it went well...pic's please!!!

Not surprised at all; that's how Mitzi accepted puppy Judy and how Judy accepted puppy Bruno.
We need pictures!!!
