Thanks, he is having a ball in the new place. He recently discovered the geese that hang out at the lake, so that's been interesting.
Curlytails, yeah we have moved quite a bit in the last year and a half. I think it's more stressful for me than for him, though. The initial adjustment doesn't usually take long, although he did go through a short period of mild depression this time. In the past, I had roommates with dogs, so he always had a playmate, and now it's just me and him, but he came out of his funk rather quickly considering the circumstances. This is my last year, though, so hopefully we won't have too many more moves in the future.
Fran, I know Although he like to test them, he does have to abide by certain boundaries.
The recliner, however, is his. We stayed with my parents this summer while I did research, and Cody, Moe, and my dad fought over the recliner all summer. Whenever my dad wasn't sitting there, Moe would hop into it for a nap, then Cody would jump into it to cuddle with Moe, who isn't a cuddler, so he would vacate it and Cody would stay there and curl up by himself. My dad would come back and make Cody get up, and the cycle would start all over again. They got new furniture before I left, so he gave Cody the recliner. Sometimes I get to sit in it.
