He's home!



He is so tall that even in his 32" tall crate, he hits his head a lot and has to bend his neck when he sits. He's only been home for about 8 hours, but so far we've discovered that he looooves his squeaky toy. He is also very interested in squirrels. He mouth also leaks when he drinks and he probably gets more water on the floor than down his throat. He also pees on his own foot. Despite this, he's still pretty friggin' adorable.






Also, very cool... they gave us his bertillon card. I was not expecting that! Only 2 dark nails!





He still won't poop though. He sniffs around but just doesn't seem to be inspired when we take him out.

He's gorgeous! I love those big, brindle boys.


Boon didn't go for about a day and a half after we got him. I was worried, but the group said that happens. Cully's right--he'll go when he needs to.

Congratulations! Next time we're in Kingston (and yes, we go out there several times a year), I'll try to see if you're up for a walk or something. VERY handsome boy you have there! And yup, I would expect receipt of the Bertillon card -- you should also have his NGA certificate and any medical paperwork from his last track vaccinations plus any vaccinations/neutering/dental done by your group's Canadian vet.


ETA: I just looked up his tattoos. Love his name, "Jammin Jock".

Congrats! He's handsome! We're in Lindsay which is kind of nearby. We'll be in Kingston the last weekend of October. Maybe we can meet up!

He pooped today! Ha... I never thought I'd be so happy over dog poop. Wasn't very pretty to pick up. Used 2 bags and still left an embarrassing mess. :cry1

He's been so good so far. He really likes his squeaky toy and his fluffy white ducky toy.

He's adorable! Congrats. Don't worry, he's likely just settling in and a nervous tummy and loose stool the first few days isn't unusual. Not fun to clean up, but it'll firm up. He's roaching and playing with toys already, so he sounds like he sure likes it with you. :)
