My first dog in my life, Dot, died January 14th 2018 due to a tumor that was slowly yet quickly breaking her body down. She soon had lost use of her back legs from what we thought was an injury and had to abruptly put her down due to the advancement of her condition. There was nothing left we could do for her and she hated soiling herself.

10 days later we adopted Nala, a sweet pit-mix who loves snuggling and has a rambunctious personality. She's 6 months old now and although she's very smart and is responding to some commands well, her biting is becoming a lot and really just makes me feel like I don't want to interact with her, but I know she just wants to be around us. I'm starting to feel like I'm growing impatient with her and I'm starting to feel like I made the wrong choice in getting a dog so soon. It doesn't help either that of the 4 people in my household (Parents, lil sis, and I) I feel like I'm putting in most of the work when it comes to training, feeding, playing, etc. I also feel like she doesn't like me much. When anyone else comes around, she's super happy, but she seems to grow bored of me. Am I thinking too much?

It takes time to connect with our new pups Ellie and Missy in my experience.   They are rescues, both were around 1 when we started cohabitating. 

I found it so weird, to be happy with our additions and still be grieving the boys.  Toby had passed 2 months previously, and Tuffy 13 months.

Six months, a year later and the connection started happening.  3 years later and I love the girls with all my heart.
