Yesterday S and I brought home this little baby:
Image
He is a black lab mix, about 2 years old, and a little underweight at 43 pounds. He was brought up here last weekend from a high-kill shelter in Arkansas and arrived in Wisconsin on Tuesday. So far he really doesn't have any interest in Benjamin the Cat, which is very nice and he seems to think Benny is in charge as he will start towards the kitchen and, if he sees Benny in there or in the doorway, he turns around and goes back to his bed.

We tried leaving him alone for a short time to without a crate, because S didn't want to crate train unless we had to. We came home to 2 sets of blinds broken (1 repairable), 1 screen torn out in a window, and a giant poop in the guest room. Honestly, it could have been worse, but we are now going to start crate training. Luckily S is home all day so George won't be in it much right away.

He is settling right in and we just adore him. Today we're going to go for a walk and then give him a bath (smells like wet do). We do need to take him to the vet because he has a cough and very long nails. The shelter tested and said he was negative for kennel cough but that it might be allergies or something.

Image

I'll post more pictures as he does more cute things. Stay tuned for lots of George.

George says "Hi, PPK! I'm excited to be here!"

So Benjamin is definitely the alpha. They've had a few staring contests across the room and every time George turns his head and lays down. Not sure why it is like this (maybe because everything here smells like Benny?), but I think it is better than having them fight, so I'll take it. It also means that if Benny is in the room, George walks with his head down, eyes averted, and hugs the walls. They haven't been closer than 2 feet to each other and that was brief even.

George did really well at the park and had a good frolic. He didn't even try to go in the creek when he was watching frisbee golfers on the other side.

He just finally ate a full bowl of food and drank some water, which we were starting to get concerned about.

He is such a sweetie and tries to be a good boy.

George!

He looks like he's trying to make himself small in the first photo, and in the second he's more spread out and relaxed. He's beautiful and I'm so glad he's found a forever home.
