Maverick, aka Ganon, is fitting right in with the family! Nighttime is hard for him, understandably. The first night, we put the dogs together in a pen in our room and he cried most of the night. Around 3 AM, we put them in separate crates and he was able to relax and get a few hours of sleep then. The second night we put them in separate crates from the start, and he cried until we put them together and Link gave him kisses until they were calm. Needless to say, he's sleeping a lot during the day to make up for the night before, but he keeps one eye open and jumps-to whenever there's a game of tug-of-war or any sign of going outside. The two boys are getting along okay - still trying to work out the politics, but a treaty is in order to be signed in the next couple days. When they are playing together you can tell that they are going to be best buddies for life! We took them to the puppy park yesterday where he met our friend's llasa apso, Mushu. Mushu is a very calm dog and they got along very well. Ganon is definitely a mama's boy and barks when Dave comes in the room after a change of clothes; but after Dave reassures him that it's just daddy, his tail starts going and the kisses start. He has a favorite chair that he retreats too when he wants to be alone, but has some good snuggle sessions with his mom, too. He's eating very heartily and has had only a few accidents in the house - we're still working on learning his signs. We got to experience "noodle time" last night when we were going out to grab dinner and were putting the boys in the kitchen. He appreciates having his squirrel with him, and even shares him with Link who also thinks that it is the best toy in the house. We're having so much fun with our boys and they are having just as much with us and each other. Thanks again for taking such good care of him until we were able to find him.
