Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all your recent well-wishes and support! We have been here a little over a week now and everything is going well. We have been letting the dogs take it easy lately because they seem to be adjusting to the heat slowly. It gets pretty hot in our apartment during the day and they will just sprawl out on the carpet and veg out. We do have an AC in our bedroom, so when we go out they get to hang out in there – Lexi in Zev’s nice big travel crate and Zev just in the room with her. They are getting more used to it every day. It’s been a big adjustment, so we are taking our time and making sure they feel comfortable.
Right now, they are actually taking turns with a giant antler I got a few days ago. I go to a cute little shop in Honolulu called Calvin and Susie’s to get Lexi’s Honest Kitchen food. I saw a jumbo antler and figured the dogs needed some enrichment, since the majority of their toys and other stuff is in transit from RI right now. We have to be careful about having toys out in the house – Lexi especially can get protective of her toys if she sees Zev eyeing them, so in our old house we would just throw up the baby gate to give them each a section of the house to themselves to have a toy, or else monitor each very carefully. This morning, I let them take turns with the antler in the living room while monitoring them very closely, and each waited so patiently while the other got to chew. Good job, pups!
Lex is now utterly pooped and taking her mid-morning nap. Happy Saturday, everyone!
