It's been a week since Kobee first came to us, and he's gotten quite a bit accomplished! First I am pleased to report that Kobee seems to have added a bit of weight during his time here! He is very well mannered when he eats his meals, no gulping food. He doesn't bother Ella (or her food) when she's eating, and after a few extra big meals...he is now down to a normal amount of food. He'll even let us know when he's full by politely backing away from the food dish and giving us a sweet look as if to say "thanks for the food but I think I'm full now!" He went to the vet on Monday, and had some blood work done to make sure that there was no medical cause for his low weight. All of his tests came back normal, and so now it is just a matter of time before Kobee is his perfect weight!
Kobee has also taken this past week to learn how to play! Now Kobee will play fetch with us and run around the yard with Ella. He is spending more and more time outside, in fact a couple of days ago I went in the house and Kobee didn't come in to find me for 15 minutes! He enjoys chewing on bones, edible chews and sticks. He does great on walks, and really enjoys them. We still haven't heard him bark, even when the neighbors are in their yards he'll just walk up to the fence and watch them. He continues to be a perfect gentleman during the times we're gone and has proven himself trustworthy with full access to the house. He's also wonderful in the car; he'll find a comfy spot and nap. Naps are one of Kobee's favorite things....it's what he does when we're not outside playing. Right now Kobee is laying by my feet...and once I get up he'll follow me to the next room and restart his nap ; ) If I want to cuddle with him, all I have to do is jump on the bed or couch and invite him up. He'll snuggle up right next to me and lay with me until it's time to get up. Also, I was impressed with Kobee's calm demeanor when he got his ears cleaned...he made Ella look like a big sissy pants!
A family is coming to meet Kobee next week! We'd miss Kobee an awful lot, but he's ready to be home. This little guy will give his family all the love in his heart, and would be a loyal and devoted friend all of his life.
