I looked at my calendar this morning and realized, with surprise, that Nico has been with us for over a month. How is that even possible? The last month has flown, and though we've been busily teaching him not to steal food and bare his teeth at male houseguests, his social graces are still a work in progress.
On the other hand, he's gotten very good at learning to lie down on his mat on command, and on being housetrained--well, most of the time. And he and Reuben are 99% friends now.
This afternoon my Mom arrives for the holidays, so Nico will meet another member of his extended human family. And the Christmas season will kick into high gear!
Happy holidays from our frenetic and fur-filled household to yours.
