We brought him home this afternoon! He was a real star on the drive home: he only cried for about 10 minutes before settling down in the cat carrier I was transporting him in. He slept for most of the 2.5 hour trip.
Raven wasn’t sure what to make of the boisterous new addition (it might take her a bit to make up her mind). The two older cats disappeared upstairs; Ollie kept a careful eye on him from halfway up the stairs, while Merlin thought it safer to wait things out in the bedroom. Charlie, who has never had any fear of dogs, was quick to say hello and start making friends. The puppy, meanwhile, was interested in everyone.
No name yet – it’s taken us a while in the past to settle on something that fit well, and I can’t imagine this little guy will be any different. :)
And if anyone is still interested in any of the puppy-fundraiser drawings (you can see what’s left at the post here), I’d be happy to hear from you!
