We have our little Dexter in our lives!
We headed 2 hours south to pick him up yesterday. We were so impressed with him in the car, he never once cried but within 20 minutes he started getting motion sickness. It was the saddest thing ever. He threw up 10 times! Poor little guy. It was dreadful, we had to pull over to give him a break and him and Riley moved to the back seat.
We finally made it home and fed him.
Here he is enjoying his first day:
Last night we put a piano bench by our bed and put the crate on top of it facing us. When we put Dexter in he started crying. I sang the "hush little baby" lullaby and put my fingers through the crate and rubbed his paw and within a minute he fell silent! Riley and I only know the mockingbird and diamond ring verse and after that we make it up, it's pretty fun. I'm glad it soothes Dexter.
He started crying at 3am so we got dressed and took him outside to potty. He woke up again at 5am but I just sang the lullaby sleepingly to him. Once again at 7am and we woke up and took him out and played with him.
Within an hour or so he took a nap in the sunlight. We are delighted he loves his bed
He also likes to lay halfway under the couch
after some play he sleeps some more and cuddles with his planet dog toy
We love our little Dexter!
