Aww...that's neat! They will be fast friends before you know it! It's a lot of work for a little time...and then a lot of love. Enjoy her.
By the way, is this the mod who said she would NEVER get another dog again? I know I can't live without a dog either. So "Hurray" for you!
You haven't lost your mind completely, at least not yet! My girlfriend got a Shih tzu and then weeks later got a Pomeranian and they have become great friends. They play and wrestle all the time.
Have fun with the new, little furry addition to the family!
Congratulations! I don't think you will be sorry! Yes, more work initially, but I think once Krissy accepts the pup, they will be always engaging in play and you get the pleasure of watching them play! Sure, you also get to pick up the poops, take them to the vet, but there is so much more to them that that, so much more, as everyone else has said. Now about Krissy not wanting to play. Each time we have brought another puppy into the house, the current dog has turned their nose up, for AS LONG AS TWO WEEKS! And I believe that is their way of showing they are alpha. You know dogs are pack animals and packs always have an alpha. It might not take as long with pups as young as Krissy and pup, just a warning. Just let them be. Krissy may growl and just walk away, it's her way of showing this is HER house and SHE will decide when the pup is accepted in.
Ahhhh, the puppy stage...needle-like teeth...arms shredded!!! toes being chewed on! Getting up in the middle of the night!!! Ah, no, I don't envy you this stage, but I know what is coming and that is a whole lot of heaven for you. Such joy they will bring you. You will feel better, no doubt, your adrenaline will be pumping, along with endorphins kicking in.
Like Tyno, I also feel if it weren't for my dogs, there would be days I'd probably not have left my bed, this I know for sure. They give us a reason to get up and going, whether it's taking them out for a walk, or a play in the yard. I simply can't do that walk any longer first thing in the morning, I just can't and I finally have figure out ways to exercise my dogs without taking an early walk. Thank goodness, I do have a yard. I still walk them, but it's later, when I can manage it.
Anyway, not about me!! Good luck and MAZEL TOV!!! So happy for you!

Mystical Angel sounds like a great name. She will probably get along fine with Krissy and they will make great friends. (oh boy - did I get the names right?!!) It is always easier on them when they have friends whenever you have to go somewhere.
Best of luck in potty training and keeping your shoes "unchewed"!
