Archer is home!

Hey gang, after months of planning we finally have little Archer home with us. He is a doll. He settled in his crate quickly and voluntarily goes in it (in fact he just went in again!) He knows how to use the rascal dog with the grate (took the grass off when he started tearing at it... that stuff seems to come loose quickly), ate his dinner like a champ, and is following us around. No accidents so far (meaning, I haven't screwed up that part yet.
And he is just a sweet-heart. His personality does seem different today than when we first met him at age 7 weeks. (He is 8.5 wks now).

He doesn't seem as shy and seems to like us. I did take a little walk around while we were on the ferry, with him in my jacket, and he was shaking a little bit, but there is a lot of rumbling noise, and the ocean to see, and a lot of scary things. He heard his first siren soon after he got home. He stopped what he was doing and kind of twitched his ears but didn't seem overly alarmed.

He also noticed my pet birds and my fish and seems interested to observe them but is not trying to get through the pen at them or anything.

So far I think he is a total sweetheart and I think we lucked out temperament wise after having to figure out all that stuff (and thank you very much to those forum members who helped encourage us!)

I didn't dare post something without ample pictures so here you go! I am sure there will be more to come.
