Attached are a few shots of Harpo’s first day in his new home. His adjustment couldn’t be better. Mandy spent the first two nights sleeping on the floor with him. The third night, those little teeth were too much, so now he sleeps on his bed right next to us, and I get up with him a couple of times during the night to let him outside.
Today, he was introduced to Bugsy’s best friend JJ, a black lab, and they became fast friends. And it appears that Zoey, my daughter’s cat, who has never been around dogs (and has little use for them), is making quite an effort to make a friend of Harpo. We are amazed.
It is quite something to see how fast he develops. Yesterday he would chase and pounce on a tennis ball, but that was it. Today he discovered he could hold it in his mouth and run around, so now begins the time-honored German Shepherd tennis ball obsession.
Harpo is running around and having the greatest of times. He’s a bundle of energy, wants to get into everything, and is working those sharp little teeth like there’s no tomorrow. In short, he’s the perfect German Shepherd pup – absolutely full of life.
He’s a real character, and we couldn’t possibly love him any more. We’ll keep you posted as he grows up.
