This not-very-exciting video is actually my FAVOURITEST foster-furbaby update 😊 Rowl at the two week mark has gone from being scared of the stupid squawking chicken and running away from it to being more or less indifferent to where is now: totally in love with it and wanting to play with it ALL. THE. TIME. For realz, the first thing he does every morning is go look for the chicken so he can bring it to me for play time. Yeah, even before the coffee’s made 🙄 .
There’s nothing as heartwarming as watching a rescue dog blossom 💖
Other 2-week celebrations:
🍗 He’s put on some weight and is starting to look like a healthy boy. He’s at about 80 lbs (he was 73 when he arrived) and still filling out.
🏋️♀️ He’s putting on muscle and getting in shape. He’s running with me every day (ok, mostly every day 😏). Well... he lopes at a comfortable clip while I run, anyway (what, he’s got long legs, ok?).
🎓 He’s learning some words! TBH I think he didn’t even know that words were for communicating until about a week ago. Poor guy. We haven’t done any training, not even basic stuff like “sit” - we’ll leave that for his forever family. But he’s figured out what some words and concepts mean, like “want to go outside?” and “want a cookie?” and “get your ass off the couch, mister” and (my favourite, obvs) “where’s your chicken?”.
🛌 He’s spending up to an hour at a time snoozing in his crate with no fuss while I study in another part of the house! Not bad for a dog we were told would freak out if crated 😊 Next week we’ll keep increasing the time and start leaving the house for a few minutes, too ☺️
PS - there have been a bunch of applications to @bigandsmallrescue
to adopt this handsome guy, but the right match hasn’t been found yet. If you want to adopt him, you still have a shot 😊 Please email email@example.com
