We picked up Elijah from Sacramento last night. He was reluctant to come out
of the kennel at first but after about 5 minutes of sweet talk he finally
gave in. He was wobbly at first, I would imagine his poor little legs were
quite stiff. In the Bronco he rode with his front paws and his head up front
with us and the rest of him in the back. When we got home and opened the
door to the backyard and he saw the other two kids (Sydney and Bear), he
finally wagged that tail of his. Every one seems to get along well and Bear
keeps trying to play with Elijah. Elijah seems a bit confused about what
Bear wants though.
Today we took the kids to the smaller dog park to see how
he reacted with other dogs and people. He did very well, no ill will toward
anyone, and even tried to go home with everyone. After the dog park we went
for a walk around the lake. Sydney and Bear jumped in and went swimming and
Elijah seemed interested in their fun so he jumped in after them. He seemed
content to just stand up to his chest in the water and walk back and forth.
When we got home we washed all three dogs and they are all currently
lounging in the sun in the back yard drying off.
