I'm now a little bit behind, but on Thursday, as you know, via Lab Rescue comes Kingston!
After a brief introduction,
And a little watching out the window.
He slept the rest of the way home.
Kingston is pretty thin, and highlights his soul filled eyes that watch my every move as he follows me all over the house. He's an easy going boy that is eager to please. He also knows all the basics, and does as we ask him to do.
I'll also add that he's happy. Really happy. Which is why the end of his tail is bandaged. He's got something called "happy tail," Happy tail, also known as kennel tail, is an injury caused when a dog wags or hits his tail consistently against hard objects, causing the tail to break open and bleed. It's painful enough, and sometimes if it is not allowed to heal properly, the end of the tail will need to be removed. So, Kingston's tail will be bandaged for a few more days.
Kingston is getting along well with our crew. Of course Todd did let him know to keep a respectable distance. Kingston seems to respect that. Thankfully. And thankfully, I think Kingston is going to be okay here with us.
And lets not forget that via the SPCA, Cookie, our little boarder that will be here until Tuesday.
After feeding her and getting her all settled into her crate last evening, Cookie quickly let us know her disapproval of the accommodations. That disapproval continued through the evening. At bedtime we took her into the bedroom, and put her into another crate. It was also not to her liking. But she slept for a couple of hours before whining, for what I think was to be taken out, which I did half-asleep 2-3 more times overnight.
Cookie has been napping most of the day. I'm glad that someone is getting their rest.
I just hope that all that sleeping doesn't mean Cookie is going to have fully charged puppy batteries tonight.
