In just an hour we're leaving to pick up our Benji! This afternoon we were just going for a visit and to get some pics with Benji and his siblings - but the breeder said we could take him home if we wanted to save a trip on Thurs as he's had his first vac this morning so he is ready - :whoo:
The only downside is that I am going out this evening for a few hours - so hubbie gets extra bonding time - but I'll soon make up for that
Hey there all
Thank you for your best wishes. Benji's been home for a whole day now and is settling in well I think . Apart from last night and me going out, I've spent the whole day with him today and we're enjoying our bonding very much! He's been very good, yesterday afternoon/evening we introduced his crate and he had two long naps in there during the evening. We kept him up late to give him time to get used to us and his surrounding and went to bed at midnight and not a peep from him until 5am, which I thought was pretty good for night one!!
He's had a couple of sleeps on my lap today (so sweet), but I have been getting him in his crate too and throwing in small treats and his toys and he doesn't seem to mind if he is tired - fingers crossed this continues!
So I wonder how long tonight?!
Hopefully my pics have uploaded (some must be too big as they are refusing to upload - as you know it is nearly impossible to get a good shot when they are active, so the best ones are when he's asleep!
Benji's bed looks comfier than mine!
He is gorgeous Bet you're thrilled to have him home early
Glad he has slept nicely in the crate & through the night!
Poppy hates the crate so we've got rid & just leave her bed in the kitchen.
She still cries when she is first put in, but settles after a while, she did cause a few comotions through the night in the first week, so the crate is gone & hopefully she will get better
It may be partly to do with her knowing that Izzie is upstairs with us, poor Poppy!
