A Good Fit For Us!
Lucky is just what we were looking for – a companion for Zeka. One that can entertain her and wear her out since our runs don’t seem to be enough for her. He has done exactly that for us. Now the only problem is that he wears her out, she sleeps half the day. Then he needs to be entertained 🙂
I have attached a short video of them. We walk around the farm a few times a day, and this is what they end up doing. I love watching them; it is funny. Lucky is so much faster than Zeka. She often cheats by cutting corners; it’s her only chance of keeping up. They run until Zeka gets tired and lays down.
We Are Working It Out
He is a good boy. I took Thursday and Friday off to work with them since Avery was going to be at some training; I have gotten to know him pretty well. The ride home was pretty uneventful, they had a few words together, but they did fine. I attached a picture of us driving home in the car. Zeka is passed out, and he is wide awake. They have had words since, it’s usually because of Zeka. She is way more possessive of her stuff than Lucky. She is always jealous of whatever he has and tries to take it; he is usually ok with it. She is a bully to him. He tolerates her picking at him most of the time, but he lets her know when he has had enough. Chow time was pretty eventful the first day as well, but I think we have it all figured out now.
Lucky is Avery’s Shadow
He really bonded with Avery, it’s comical; he is (literally) Avery’s shadow when he is here. He sits in front of the bathroom door and waits until he is done showering or the front door when he leaves until I convince him to come hang out with Zeka and me.
They Are Going to Be Great Together!
Zeka and Lucky wrestle and play all of the time….until Zeka lays down for a nap. He has been napping more the last two days; he must feel a little more comfortable. I did take him to the vet on Friday. That didn’t go well at all. Apparently he doesn’t like people near his face or over the top of him; however, he lets Avery, and I smooch on him all of the time. So I was taken aback when he gave the vet a hard time. (He didn’t like Zeka in his face at first either but he has gotten over that) It was not a fruitful vet visit; nonetheless, he did get his rabies shot. He has a really bad and big hot spot on his chest that I have been doctoring. Other than that, he is perfect. We are very happy and lucky to have him. He and Zeka are snuggling as I write this – very cute. Thank you for our amazing kids. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I will send more down the road.
We do not get a lot of returns; however, we usually have one or two available. We also have moved to a process of rehoming our females earlier so they can have a second career. This was a difficult decision, but we can see how beneficial it is. We are working on a post that will warm your heart. One of the former girls is excelling in her new career as a therapy specialist. We are thrilled that Lucky (who is Blu’s brother) has found such a wonderful placement. We thank Ginger and Avery for adopting him and reporting back to us.
