Monkey day 3

Best day so far. The beginning of a structure put in place. Breakfast was eaten. Walks were taken and cats were passed without too much trouble. Monkey is being so good on the lead. Dinner was delayed due to visitors . . . but with a little added cheese it was devoured in minutes. A couple of days like this and we'll be ready to start looking at moving Monkey out of his 'kennel run' and into the rest of the house. At the moment he is so relaxed it is hard to see where his bed ends and his body begins. At lunch I put my coat on to go into the village - leaving Monkey with the GOTH. Monkey saw me put the jacket on and got up. When he saw I hadn't got the lead, he lay down again.

House noises do not seem to bother him as much as they did on Monday and Tuesday as the post arrrived through the letter box with a mere pricking up of the ears rather than a full-blown heads up 'what was that'?
There seems to be a problem with my netbook at the moment so I am going to try to post this and sign off for the night. Thank you all for bearing with me and I am very hopeful of being able to respond to your kind comments next week.

He's settling in really quickly, especially since he doesn't have another dog around to follow cues from. I'm so glad that things keep going well! :)

Monkey you are very handsome! You look so very much like our retired racer Tater (aka Bad Blaze) you will be fine ans settled in in no time.just takes a bit to get comfy with so many new things. Tater had to learn stairs, what windows were and they were solis so she could not go thru them, even grass seemed new to her. So glad you are a very loving and understanding forever dimly.

Wonderful news. Monkey is settling in really well.

I am so pleased Monkey is settling. I was told that around three months after you have a new dog, they can go through a naughty stage, which is purely two test you and they feel more secure to try things.

Best wishes Molly

Oh Monkey, it won't take long to get used to the retired lifestyle. You won't have to do much. Your humans will take care of most everything for you.
