As an update to my previous thread, 0ur adoption of Trunks is official. We signed all the paperwork yesterday.
He is settling in and wants so badly to be friend with the cats, but has learned through trial and some error that he can’t just go up to them - they swat!! But he doesn’t bark or nip at them. They hiss and growl, he just lies down. I am truely suprised how patient he is with them. They growl and hiss at him and he looks at us with bag sad eyes as if to say “why don’t they like me? I like them… and not as a snack”
So far we found out that stuffed toys are NOT for him. He will tear them up. We bought a stuffed beaver dog toy at Target, well, he chewed the foot off of it and was pulling stuffing out of it in less than an hour. I guess it will be Kong tiys and chewey bones from now on. Either that or buy the cheapest stuffed dog toys on the planet.
He has got pretty good manners, deosn’t bark a lot, takes walks pretty good, but pulls on the leash, but he has gotten better even after only 3 walks. Tonight he just wanted to smell everything.
For the time being, he spends the day when we are at work and when we go to bed in his crate. The thing is huge, I think a Smart car would fit in it :D. No whining or crying. We say ‘place’ and he goes right in and lies down.
Oh, the obligatory pictures of pup.
