My good girl has decided to bring a second female into our relationship.
That is just a tease.
The female is a mixed pit bull that she recently obtained from a shelter.
She has wanted a dog for long time and immediately bonded with Samone. And she doesn't fit the stereotype of a part pit bull. She is docile and loves to lick your hand and roll over on her back so her belly can be rubbed. My good girl was taking her for a walk and she hid behind her when she saw a cat. My good girl said you  are not afraid of a cat.   
And if we kiss on the couch, she comes running over for some attention.
Living with a dog is all new to me. Never had a pet growing up and my younger daughter got a cat when she was seven.
 Samone is not house trained so she has to be kept in her kennel or crate overnight or when my good girl is at work because she won't soil her spot.
And when my good girl and I want some private time, we have to put her in the fenced in backyard or in the kennel, which is only three feet by about two feet but she doesn't complain or rarely barks.
She also only chews on her chew toys and not on the furniture.
We are still working on keeping her off the furniture and have a doggy day bed for her to relax on during the day instead of stretching out on the couch. I took her out this morning but she wasn't interested in chasing a ball. She seemed too interested in checking out a squirrel in a tree in neighbor's yard. So I decided to let her stay outside for a while. Next thing I knew she was sitting on a lawn chair. I opened the door and she jumped off. I closed it and she was quickly back on the chair so I let her inside. Next thing I knew she was on the couch. I told her down, which she mostly ignored and had to almost tug on her to get her off. She is now back relaxing on her day bed so maybe she got the message.
Still, I think my good girl lucked out in finding such a good dog.
Of course, there is a bit of adjustment when she says "I love you'' and I am not sure if she is talking to me or Samone.
I am visiting for 10 days for the first time in three months because my good girl had a brutal work schedule for a new project that is now over. And I am getting used to have a dog in the house.
