Hello, friends. This past weekend, we picked up our dog, Mac! He used to live just south of Little Britain and Manilla. True story.
Things we’ve learned so far:
- He’s a cautious soul. He was terrified on the 3hr drive back to Kingston, vomited all over the back of the car, and clearly thought he was being kidnapped. We felt utterly evil. But, as a Facebook friend pointed out, Stockholm Syndrome will kick in sooner or later.
- He’s great with other dogs. For the first two days, he was really only happy when he met other neighbourhood dogs. The rest of the time, he had a worried/sad look.
- He learns fast. After one walk, he understood that I was okay with him sniffing around lampposts and hydrants, but not garbage cans or recycling boxes.
- He’s new to soccer and bravely herded the 4yo away from a Very Threatening soccer ball.
- He’s a pro napper.
Another thing I’ve learned: dog photography is hard. I’ll work on it and have more photos next time.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
