until we turned on our 52" tonight. He spun, reared back, and started to bark at it, lunging a bit at the screen! One of many firsts today, Ernie's Gotcha Day.
Ernie is really enjoying all the toys we saved from our Chicago Crew. One of the last birthday presents Remo received was a stuffed Jack. Ernie had some fun with it tonight.
Burt & Ernie went for a walk tonight over to Senka Park. It's only a couple of blocks from our house. The park was Crawling with people! People running, people on bikes, people flying kites, people playing basketball... people, people, people. We sat for a while and Ernie was so excited he twisted his leash into a braid.
On the way back home we walked down Lawndale, stopping at each alley and street saying "wait, wait, watch it, watch it". Ernie caught on quickly that we stop and stay until he's told "ok". The walk took a lot out of him, but as soon as he was back in "his yard" he got his second (third, fourth?) wind.
Tonight Ernie and Burt had their kibble, some Salmon Oil, some pumpkin and some chicken breast chunks. Ernie is so skinny that I can almost make a circle with my hands around below his rib cage in front of his hips. I'm sure if Lar tried he could encircle him and touch fingertips to thumbs. Burt is used to eating in a separate room from Dixie, so that worked well. Later they got a couple of bits of pizza crust (no sauce) and sat next to each other waiting to "take it nice".
Right now Burt is sleeping in front of Lar's chair and Ernie is sleeping next to me in front of the TV. Some dogs are barking outside and Ernie's ears aren't even twitching. We've set up our nice crate that we got for Dixie (never used) and tossed his blankie & duck in it. Ernie has gone in and out of it a couple of times. We hope he has a peaceful night in his furever home.
We love our boys...
What a beautiful day !!
The first of many to come.
Welcome HOME Sweet Boy.... life is going to be GOOD.
And Burt.. we love you to pieces.... hoping this is the gift you too needed.
Love and Hugssssssssssss
