We had a long, but relatively quiet car and ferry and car ride home.
Except for the two throw-ups after we stopped the car in the ferry line-up.
The breeder suggested that for such a long journey, with a dog who'd never been in a crate, I might want to hold her on my lap ... and just ease her into the crate if I got tired of holding her. (I didn't get tired of holding her!)
Boomer the Cat was AMAZING last night! He was intensely interested in Chica, but didn't run or hiss or freak in any way.
This morning was another story, when Chica ran full tilt towards him on her way outside ... and Boom hissed and took a swat at her.
We had some tough moments early in the evening last night with crying and howling. I told Bob, "We'll never make it through the whole night if this keeps up!"
So I got online and found a downloadable CD called "Canine Lullabies."
They didn't work immediately (like they do in the video on the website!), but the heartbeat rhythm did seem to have an effect after a while.
She's asleep right now so gotta get a few things done.
Cheers to all!
