Izzy is home!!
« on: November 14, 2006, 01:13:54 am »
Well, after lots of time on the road- Izzy the Grizzly is finally home. He and I had a great ride from Manhattan Beach to Sacramento on Saturday night. Then the fun really began. We were going to spend the night in our old apartment, pick up Dad and Abby the cat, and drive the rest of the way to South Lake Tahoe. Great plan, except that Iz is apparently afraid of open stairs. Did I mention our apartment is the third floor? That was fun. An hour later, we finally got him upstairs, where he showed a little too much interest in his new little sister. So, he and I spent the night in the living room, and dad and Abby spent the night in the bedroom. Finally, Saturday morning, we packed up and headed home. And Izzy was in heaven- we had 5 inches of snow and got 5 more or so throughout the course of that day and night. He can walk forever!! We've walked a couple of miles each day, and he is proving to be quite the gentleman on the leash. I imagine it will only be another week or two before we can let him off of it when we go for walks on the property. Walking with Dad is a different story, he drags him all over the place. I'd be lying if I didnt't say that I found that amusing, but we're working on it. Izzy also finally settled down and figured out that he was scaring poor Abby in his frantic desires to sniff her, so he laid down next to her (she was in my lap) and ignored her, letting her sniff and hiss at him all she wanted. So far, he is workign out to be such a perfect fit for our family that it is astonishing!! Thanks so much newflvr!!
