We have a new cousin!
What’s a cousin?
Mom explained that it’s kind of a relative. Here’s a picture of Stella.
That’s not a cousin…………..that’s a dog and she came over to our house.
Ok, so it’s a cousin dog. She’s a Newfoundland and Mom says she’s going to be really big. Right now she’s about the same size as me and weighs a pound less.
I was really scared when she came in the house on Sunday. I didn’t know what was going on. She was black like you but she didn’t have any white on her and she made strange noises.
She was barking. Ebony doesn’t do much barking now but my best friend, Champ, does a little so I know what barking is. I was scared of Stella, too. Mom thought I would be making friends with her right away but it confused me that she was my size. I’m used to dogs being bigger.
Mom said it won’t take long before she’s lots bigger than we are.
I suppose it would be smart for both of us if we made friends with Stella while she’s little.
Are we going to get more cousins?
I have no idea. I think it’s cool that pretty soon it’s going to be more fur people than humans in our family!
I hope all those cousins don’t try to eat our food, but I’m sure glad the humans leave our food alone!
