That puppy just makes me melt! Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Such a sprightly little one!

Welcome to the forum, Malaika!! She's absolutely adorable!!! Congrats on this great family addition! Always keep your camera on standby 😉

Oh, she is absolutely gorgeous! You must be so pleased to finally have her home!!

Is that a little umbilical hernia i can see in the pics? If so, just poke it back in when you're giving her some fuss and hold it there for a few mins at a time. Very often that will close them back up 😉 As long as its not the more serious type of course!

She is adorable!!! I love the name Malaika. One of my favorite gorillas was named Malaika, sadly she died last week…so it seems fitting a new baby B will have her name 🙂

That's wonderful Shelly! Malaika is a real beauty. We'll look forward to more pics as she grows.

What a little darling. She is so cute, I wanted to nuzzle the computer screen!

Welcome little lady your so sweet and pretty. I know you just got the best of the best for your new home. She looks so darn sweet sleeping. I am so very happy for you and your new baby.

Yes Jess she does have a hernia, thanks for the advice, Elaine has told us to gently push it back. I massage it with my finger and have managed to get it in twice. How many times a day do you think ?

Do you work with Gorillas Andrea ?
I'm glad you like her name.

Thank you everyone, we are sooooo pleased it's unreal.
She has met her feline brothers, Tom being a very laid back type of Cat is being very kind to her and allowing her to sniff, he's only hit her once and that was very gently.
Jerry on the otherhand is nervous and has exploded in her face as only Cats can.
