Foster Boy is still grieving the loss of his home. While he's clearly bonded with us and happy to see us, and stays close at all times, he's still deeply saddened by his loss. He lays in bed until 10 am and won't touch breakfast until noon. Most labs bound out of bed with the first twitch of your toe in the morning. He feigns sleep, even as I try to waken him. He doesn't like to be confined. During the day he has free run of the house and the cat is secured in one room. At night we bring him to our room so the cat can roam the house. In the evenings as we sit together, he on his blanket from home, he lays with his eyes open and makes a profoundly sad noise. A haunting combination of whines and soft cries, rather like a WHALE SONG. We slide his rug over to our feet and try to soothe him with belly rubs and ear scratches, and he eventually settles. Adopt a dog this weekend!
For those of you celebrating father's Day this weekend, I wish you a lovely day. I bought the Raz Man 15 trees to plant...I just need to put a ribbon on them and I'm all set.
