Just a quick update in Farley. We happily picked him up from Anne this morning. He traveled comfortable and without incident. He was excited when he first got home and we let him loose to explore and sniff about. He found his crate and went into check it out and brought out a chew you and immediately started to play! We showed him his food and water bowls and he drank some water. We took him out back for a while and again, let him roam about and get his bearings. He came inside an we showed him his bed in the family room and he went to his crate to retrieve his you again and brought it to his bed!! Sage was watching TV next to him and rubbing him, he's in heaven. He seems to have settled in. I went to Petsmart and got the security collar with the quick release that you suggested Anne so today we will go for a nice long walk so he can explore the neighborhood with us. We are really happy we now have Farley as a part of our family!
Ivy is so smart! She knew the basics coming to us and has really flourished! You can see the intelligence in her eyes! When I am allowed to do more (I just had my appendix removed on Tuesday and have not been able to do much) we plan to take her to a training class. We have taught Kobe to sit and "wait" to eat or go outside (that way he doesn't go crashing through the back door) until we tell him "ok". So far, Ivy has learned to to the same. As I said she is one smart cookie!
He (Loki) is still doing great. My son came home from college for the weekend & he took to him right away. Attaching some pics so you can see he loves his new companion & fits in perfectly. He is so loving & is a quick learner. He's starting to love to be an inside dog too. Now that it's getting cooler they can hang outside more. He is so well mannered, it was a perfect fit for our family.
