Test driving a new pet!

Meet Bella... Bella is 3-year-old Maltese/Bichon mix called a Maltichon. She is supposed to be hypo-allergenic, which is a necessity due to my dog allergies.
Our niece, Megan, is allowing us to have her for a week to find out if Bella would be a fit for our family. Megan has raised Bella; however, her current apartment doesn't allow pets, so she was looking for a new home for Bella. Angelique has desperately wanted a dog, but we didn't think it would ever work out. Both Steve & I grew up with dogs and we do want our kids to have the experience of a dog for a companion as well as for the responsibility.
Bella has been getting loads of attention today from all of us, but most especially, Angelique, who is Bella's biggest fan. Bella has been pretty sad today and we hope that she will be feeling better about her new home tomorrow. So far, Angelique & I haven't had any serious allergy reactions, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that Bella will become a permanent family member.
