Welcome Riley!

well, fermat has a little big younger brother. on thursday we picked up riley, a very handsome chocolate lab, from The Independent Lab Rescue of SoCal. he’s about four years old, and the most polite well-behaved dog you’ve ever met. he’d been fostered with three cats, so we have a lot of hope that he and furry will soon be friends…

furry, on the other hand, isn’t so sure. ;-) we’ve gated off the kitchen so furry has some dog-free space to himself, and he was in there when karen brought riley in the door on thursday night. there was a bit of low yowling and a tiny bit of hissing at the gate when they met, then we took riley into the den. about fifteen minutes later, furry poked his head around the corner. he’s definitely curious, which I guess is a good sign. he could have just holed up in the kitchen for a while…

this morning they touched noses (progress), and then furry hissed at him (not so much progress). it’ll take time, I guess… it’s only been a couple of days.

oh… picture. here’s a picture the rescue took. we’ll have pictures of our own soon enough…
