Tomorrow it will be 3 weeks since we adopted our beautiful Rebecca Reds. We have renamed her “Callie”. (Lee Ann wrote a children’s book about a fox by that name. So, we adopted it for Rebecca.) I took Callie to the vet on April 2 so that they could get a baseline for her records and to get her a prescription for a heartworm preventative. All was well.

Callie and Quincy kept their distance from each other at first. He didn’t like it much when she came near his food and water bowls. On friday, our 4th day, Callie approached Quincy in a playful way and things improved a lot. They get along very well now. They enjoy playing and napping together. I have had them get on the couch with me, one on each side, and take a nap while I gently give them a massage. When I take them on walks, they frequently walk beside each other in synch. They appear well suited for each other.
