Tales of the Tail: The New House

We weren't sure how Kip was going to react to moving to the new house. He is getting old (10.5!) and set in his ways, so we were expecting him to take a while to adjust to his new surroundings.

The first couple of days, he followed us around more than usual and wanted to be right under our feet. We did our best to make him feel comfortable - his bowls and beds and toy bin were all in similar places as the old house. We made it a point to not leave him here by himself for long periods of time.

It didn't take him long to get brave enough to start exploring his new surroundings. It turns out that I'm not the only one who can appreciate the benefits of a soaker tub!

After a few days, he realized that bigger house + lots of windows = more sunny places to nap! Who needs a dog bed when there's a sunny spot on the rug?!

These days I'd say he's pretty comfortable here at the new house. As soon as we get his new fence built, I don't think he'll even remember that he's only lived here a few weeks.
