Henry's favorite thing to do is to go on walks, especially when I get home from work in the afternoon. He is so excited and acts like a giddy puppy! He leads the way on the walk, and by the time we take the long route to the mailbox and back, he is pooped and ready for a nap before dinner. I'm guesstimating that the after work walk is a good 20 minute walk.
He's barked maybe twice since he's been home, but we usually don't hear a peep. He's worked his way into getting to sleep in our room in a Henry-sized bed, right next to our bed. He didn't complain about going into the kennel every night, but after a couple of days, I realized he wasn't going to roam the house at night, and brought in his bed. He lays there all night, and usually gets up about the time the alarm is going off every morning...he's my back-up alarm clock if mine doesn't go off.
He is a sweet, sweet dog and, as you said, he loves to have his hair brushed. We've taken him for a bath at Unleashed (by Petco), and he pretty much acted like Henry, which is to say, he didn't put up any fight and just let us wash and dry him without a complaint. He loves his treats, but we are of course limiting those every day (when I leave for work and when I get home)...that's not to say he's not "helping" in the kitchen by making sure anything that may drop on the floor gets whisked up right away so it's not a slip hazard for us silly humans. We have decided that carrots would be OK for him, and he seems to enjoy that special treat once or twice a week.
Anyway, I could go on, but just wanted you to know that Henry is doing quite well and seems to be adjusting to his new home quite well. So happy that he picked us to be his forever home!
