Hello, I am Cairo and I am in my forever home. I am 8 weeks old. I was flown in on a plane in the passenger area with my previous dad from Delaware and slept the whole time! It was too cold for me to be in the cargo section.
I had my first series of shots yesterday and also met the shop dog at my mom's work named Lucky. He is a staffordshire terrier/ lab mix and he is really cool. His coat looks like mine! He licked me a bunch and let me bite his jowels as we played.
Then I went to my new home! Man, this beats the snow! My big brother's name is Caesar. He is a handsome red basenji and he wasnt really sure what to think of me. I am not a scrappy hyper puppy like my mom says Caesar was. I do play a lot and Caesar was really excited to meet me. We went in the back yard and Caesar was running around in really fast circles, it scared me a lot and I hid in the bushes. I think he wanted to play, but I dont even run yet! Give me a break Caesar.
Did I tell you that I am trained! Puppy pads are my best friend. Yesterday when I was acclimating to the living room I peed and pooped on the pad without anyone instructing me!
Caesar is 6 years old and sleeps outside of the kennel. I sleep in the crate and last night went pretty well. Mom put me in my kennel, and I was exhausted from the days activities, so I didnt complain.
I woke up at 11pm, 1am, and 4:50pm last night. Each time my mom came running into the room and air lifted me to a grassy spot in the back yard. I pooped and pee'd and heard a "go potty" each time that I went. Then I went back in my crate and didnt even cry. Well almost, until the 4:50am time.
At the 4:50 time I peed and pooped and was wide awake. No going back to sleep for me! Mom, Caesar and I stayed up until 7am playing on the floor. Well, at least I was playing. Caesar started growl talking to me to tell me to stop biting him. I am a biter! And oh man, I like mom's neck and lip when I bounce in and surprise her. I trick her by sometimes licking her.
I just wanted to say hello. I have had no issues leaving my litter, but do occasionally look for Caesar's nipples in the wrong place. He lets me know that he doesnt have milk, but I think there is some in there. I'm going to keep trying.
Oh, I humped Caesar this morning trying to get him to play, but he just didnt even notice. Weird huh? Just me trying to play, but mom stopped me with a gigantic possum toy.
So all is well. I wanted to introduce myself to the pack. Mom says the Tampa basenjis are excited to meet me as well, but I can't go play with them until I am 12-16weeks old, docs orders.
Mom says I am here because Caesar was sad about something. She said he stopped playing and didnt move around much. I dont know what she is talking about because Caesar runs in the yard now and is always a bite away. He came running in with her last night each time I woke her up to potty and seems really perky.
Today I have an agenda of playing with all of Caesar's toys. I have been chilly here and mom puts me in a sweater which I think looks alright. I was shivering, so I guess I will wear this thing until I have a bit more weight on me. See ya!
