I meant all as in 'some.' I cannot in good conscience crush the man who advises me about my brand new pet.

This is an article about pet proofing your house on Apartment Therapy. I am sharing it because this was the pic in the article:

In Dallas it rained a bit and got somewhat windy. No big deal. He basically just slept a lot.

I need a new car in a big, big way. I don't think Honda had "large dog transportation" on their design specs when they pieced that thing together. I doubt I'll be able to fit both him and the kid in the car at the same time, which kind of nixes trips to area lakes for the time being.

He's acclimating pretty well. Definitely loves to sleep, and is obviously trained to zero in on small animals. I took him for a walk this morning at around 6 (lol sleep) and encountered a squirrel and two rabbits. Fucker was just waiting for me to drop the hammer. Those dogs are powerful. It wasn't a vicious demeanor, either, but more like Instant Pursuit Syndrome. You can feel the energy in them.

Other than that he spends all of his time attached to my hip. If I break line of sight he immediately gets up and follows me into the next room. He sleeps on the floor next to my bed at night and sleeps at my feet during the day (right now, for example). And I guess I can forget about bathroom privacy.

*bam* (door flings open)

him: "Hey dude, what's up?"

me: "Takin' a piss."

him: "Right on."

He's incredibly affectionate, too, and generally very calm. Walks and sniffs as opposed to darting around and knocking shit over. He did alright when I left the house last night for a couple of hours. Came home and he was rooing at the back door waiting for me. The blinds in my bedroom had been carefully bent in random directions too. I'm not sure what exactly he was going for, but the overall effect was rather modern.

Other than that we're just kind of getting used to each other. It's certainly a life-altering experience having a large animal in the house, and trying to establish set food/potty/walk times. I'll try to post some pics later.

He's seen pics but hasn't met him yet. We've had a lot of talks about large dogs though. Leaving them alone while they're sleeping, eating, etc. We've also talked about fly, and leaving him alone in general.

LOL, yeah

Told ya, lazy ass dogs. He'll get less powerful the longer you have him since he's not on a track anymore.

See what I was talking about "the pack" now?

Roos are awesome, eh?
