The home I had found for Bennigan did not work out. Because he is so rough and strong I felt it best he not go to a home with a baby who would be crawling on the floor. He does not know what a baby is, and it just did not feel safe for the baby to me, for him to go there. I loved that the Mom is home but I would not want Bennigan to hurt the baby by being the rough, strong Puppy that he is.
Yesterday I took Bennigan to his new people. His Mom is a nurse. She is very sweet and is quite knowledgable with canine behavior. She and Bennigan's new Dad have a Rottie girl who is 6 yrs old and 3 cats. I talked to his new Mom today and she said he is doing fine. He is puzzled by the cats. I don't think he knows what they are. He was a little rough with his new sister so she let him knw she didn't like it and he has been a gentleman since then. He slept in the bed with them this am after he went out to potty and stayed in bed till 8:30! That made me feel so happy. He had an accident in the house. I was shocked but his Mom said she expected it because he was excited and trying to take in all his new surroundings. They like him and I am thinking it will work out for him. We will have to see I guess. They work and so he will be in a very large crate for 8 hrs a day. That makes me feel bad for him but he does like to sleep. If they do take him walking and play with him when they get home it will be OK I think. When they are sure he will not try to dig under the fence they can leave him in his pretty and large back yard. He will have a big covered patio to sleep under and to cover him if it rains. I guess I'm just being a Mama. I want everything to be absolutely perfect for him. I know they will be good to him or I would never.....never have let him go with them. I just have to "let go". I will keep in touch with them and see how he is doing. I will see them at PetSmart tomorrow while we are there for adoption day. They have to come finish his paper work. I hope they bring him with them. I want to see him....... Even though he was a real hand full for me. It's like when I was teaching I guess. The child that seemed to give the most trouble was always the one I missed most. I love you Bennigan and want you to be happy.
