Dear Barbara and Trudy,
This past March my number one dog, Harry, passed away during surgery, which in itself was a blessing from the angels. I have two other dogs: Tancy, a 9 year old Shar Pei, and Velvet a 7 year old Shar Pei. This past Saturday I adopted another dog from an animal shelter that is the same breed as Harry.
Needless to say I am having difficulty with the older dogs accepting the new dog and integrating him into the pack. I pray to my angels, ask Harry's spirit and ask all the pet angels for help, I try to be patient, but wonder if I made a mistake bringing in this new dog -- can you please ask the angels to please show me what to do and guide me with my work with my animal family?
The angels are telling us your other dogs are grieving for Harry, too, and the new dog may LOOK like him, but he doesn't smell like him or act like him, and they are confused. Tell them what is going on.
There is a power struggle going on between the three of them. If it doesn't resolve itself soon, the new dog is probably not for you and needs to move on to another home where he/she will fit better. When you adopted the new dog, you got him to satisfy YOUR needs, but he has spiritual work to do, too. We are also getting that you personally needed more time to settle in with the idea of another dog. Be patient, the right one will come to you.
