I decided to switch sides in hopes that would be a change of weather lukhk
I hope it worked
Does that look like SNOW????? If woo said NO, woo would be khorrekht - all the trees and bushes were dripping with water droplets AND it had been foggy
Once again, RIPPPPPPPED off!
Mom will be on the road to Merryland later today - here is a pikh of Lucky received last week along with an update
Here is the pawesome message sent to his foster mom and reskhue angel
I have copied Irina on this so she can see his progress as well.
I have to say I saw no problems with him and men. He loved all the men we met at the hand over and has LOVED my boyfriend! I wouldn't have guessed he had a problem with them, still don't!. He has been incredible since getting him. I tried to keep him in the back seat with me in the car but he just wouldn't have it. He jumped over the console and laid down in the front passenger seat like it was the only one fit for such a precious dog. We took him to Central Park last night where he had so much fun chasing other dogs and playing with all the snowmen whom he thought were real people! He seems to love it here in Manhattan with all the smells and sights. He's learning slowly but surely that the cars are nothing to be afraid of. Thankfully we live in a very quiet neighborhood.
When we got him home he immediate drank about 6 bowls of water and ate a whole can of dog food before it touched the bottom of his bowl! (He hadn't eaten since lunch.) We gave him some additional kibble and a bacon bone which I've never seen a dog eat so quickly before. He was definitely in love. (Though I am not in love with the mess he left on my rug but he cleaned it up overnight.) We have switched his food to Blue Buffalo meaning he has been farting a lot but that's expected. Just a little too smelly for my air filter which turns on immediately after causing him to jump. For the most part when he's not eating a rawhide he has been sleeping peacefully. I couldn't ask for a more perfect dog at this point in time.
He and my cat have gotten along very well. Since he's so shy he has not bothered her. They sniff each other with no complaints and just seem to mind their own business. She did sniff his bone while he was eating it but after he growled at her (not menacingly - just to say "this is mine"). She got the hint and walked away unfazed.
I'm very excited to cuddle with him when he gets to know us better. :-) It is frankly one of the main reasons I've wanted a dog for so long now. I try with my cat but she just makes a note to kill me later in her life. He hasn't learned how to climb our spiral staircase to the bedroom yet so he slept on the couch last night. He looked comfortable enough though.
Of khourse, the reason Lucky's hu-mom wanted a dog made us grin - and of khourse, we so know KHAT DRAMA!!!
So, it would appear Lucky is furry happy with life in The Big Apple!
Happy Sunday EvFURRYone!
PeeEssWoo: Here is the note Mom got to khlose out Day 1 of the transport:
Pups have landed! Georgia is a bundle of energy, Maddie is a leaner, and Effie is just a doll! They've been introduced to our 2, and the cats have hidden themselves
Georgia and Maddie are ROTTI gals and Effie is one khute as a button PUPPY - she akhtually started off Saturday by lokhking her driver out of their vehikhle!
