Boston is here!
It's been an emotional and exciting 2 and a 1/2 days so far. Boston is very needy and cries if he doesn't see me, and must be held and carried alot. Kiki was very reserved and even growled at him when he tried approaching her the first day, but slowly she is warming to him. Today she actually wagged her tail at him and sniffed his eyes. I can feel that this is going to be a loving, harmonious, fun family....it just needs a little time to get there.
Joyful experiences have been how quickly Boston learned his name; waking up to his adorable face looking at me in the morning; watching him run clumsily through the clover; and feeling how he needs me, and being able to fulfill that need. He can be very playful at times, and loves to chase a ball or chew on his stuffed duck.
Here are some images of Boston's first days with us.
I am holding his soft tiny body as I type...he likes being held with his stomach against my breast and his head looking back over my shoulder. This is how he feels safest.
I will write more soon, and post more pics!
Wishing you all a lovely day,
xoxo country girl
