Welcome Home Boomer!

We’re home! It was quite a weekend. Our son’s college graduation and a new puppy

We picked Boomer up mid afternoon on Saturday. He’s such a happy friendly boy. Nothing seemed to faze him. No nervousness, no carsickness. We took him to my son’s girlfriend’s apt so they could meet Boomer and he kissed and played with me the whole way there. Once there he not only met my DS and his gf, there were 4 friends there and Boomer was thrilled to meet them all. He just rolls with the punches.

On the drive home he did the same, he wagged his tail and played, giving us face kisses the entire time. It didn’t matter whose lap he was in, he was happy.

When we got home we drove straight to pick up Tessa so they could meet on neutral ground. I needn’t have worried, Tessa thinks we brought her the most fabulous toy ever

Tessa’s first stay at the pet sitter’s (who happens to be her agility instructor) went well too. She loved playing with Teresa’s 9 yr old boy and their cat and multiple dogs. And she got some “play” time in on the agility equipment. I’m surprised she wanted to come home, lol.

When we got home all Tessa wanted to do was play with Boomer. She’s thrilled (so far), just wiggling all over with her tail going a mile a minute. Despite knowing and reading about how dogs play together I was worried she would hurt him since pinning him seems to be her favorite activity. Her second favorite activity is taking his hair in her teeth and pulling. He’s yelped more than once and I've held Tessa back more than once when he seemed to want to be left alone. Tessa has also been drinking from his water bottle and laying in his bed and she intercepted him as he was trying to follow me into the bathroom. Sibling rivalry? lol.

Boomer has used the litter box for several pees and a poop, as well as gone outside a few times, no accidents yet. He whined when we first put him in his crate but he was at eye level with us and as soon as I put my fingers inside he was fine. I’m sure it helped that he was exhausted. Just a few whines through the night quieting as soon as I put my fingers through the slats of the crate. He held his bladder all night long too.

He is just a doll, in looks and personality! We got our new Nikon just in time but I got an error message saying I need to resize so BBL to post pics when I get it figured out.

I am glad to hear that all went well and Tessa loves her new brother Boomer. Sounds like they get along great. I can't wait to see more pictures of him and watch to see what colors he changes.

How exciting! Don't worry abut the pinning. Everybody here pins Bailey down all the time and he yelps from time to time. If I stop it he jumps back on whomever he was teasing till they pin him again. So far he's surviving. I can't wait to see pictures.

Hugs for the little boy Boomer.
