Yesterday we drove to New Hampshire to pick up Digby. We arrived 30 minutes early, but the parking lot was already beginning to fill up with anxious families awaiting their own pets. The transport finally came shortly after 2PM. He came off the transport very scared and dirt, but I would be too if I'd been in a crate for so long! We spent a fair amount of time wandering around and letting him eat and drink before we hit the road. He slept most of the way home on his own blanket. We stopped in Scarborough and bought his a new collar and leash (Bad to the Bone from Harley, of course!) and a harness and brush.
We have been settling in to life as a family today. We discovered that he just turned 7 months old and was born shortly before my birthday. He definitely is still a puppy and has tons of energy! We've been working on figuring out his toy tastes (chew toys, but not balls) and finding ways to burn his energy. We've already horsed around outside and went for a long walk this morning. It has been fun adjusting to our new lifestyle.
