Yesterday afternoon we picked up Hoshi from Gina’s. Hoshi was all over Gabby the moment they met. The car ride was bumpy and Yoshi cried most of the way–peed himself too. Cathy just fell in love with Hoshi the moment she saw him. My mom really likes him too. She’s been spending a lot of time cuddling him. I think it’s good for her Alzheimer’s. Gabby’s feeling a little left out. I think he notices all the attention Cathy is giving the puppy. We made it up to Gabby by taking turns and scratching his rump which he loves. We’re crating Hoshi which we are not used to. I figured he would cry all night his first night away from home. He cried some last night but eventually stopped.
Today I woke up this morning and Gabby was sleeping next to his crate. I took Hoshi for his first walk today with Gabby. We walked past a house with big dogs barking their heads off. Hoshi was scared. Gabby didn’t even flinch. Gabby peed on them. Hoshi is learning to walk on a leash. Gabby wanted to go on a marathon but Hoshi wasn’t feeling good about it–all the new surroundings, dogs barking and dealing with a leash. I turned around and brought them home. Hoshi follows Gabby around like he’s a leader. I brought home an electric bouncing ball which Hoshi loved. He barked at it and jumped up and down but was afraid to attack it. Gabby viciously attacked it as soon as he saw it. I think Hoshi was impressed.
Hoshi prefers Gabby’s prescription hypoallergic kibble to his own puppy chow. Gabby prefers Hoshi’s puppy chow. 😛 It sounds like a heard of antelopes in the house. Hoshi is practicing his speed trials in the hallway.
