I am a lucky new mommy to one of these little guys. His name is Ranger Komi (Ranger for "my" NY Rangers [Let's go, Rangers!], and Komi for Nakoma. I seem to be having trouble uploading the pictures from my phone (which is my only internet/computer source when I am not at work), so I will upload a gazillion of them when I return to work on Monday (shhhh, don't tell my boss).
In the meantime, Ranger Komi has been fantastic! He is super curious, sooo sweet, and smart! I think he's a bit of a wise guy, too. He landed in JFK airport (NY) on Monday night. After probably not pooping for a 13 hour travel day (and three flights) I can only imagine how his poor little tummy felt. And being in a new home without his mommy or siblings must have been confusing and terrifying for him. So our first night, though happy for my daughter and I, was a bit of a tough one.
However.... Yesterday and today have been so awesome!!! I forgot how much these little puppies need to sleep! It's so cute seeing him run around and play, and then within seconds be zonked out!
And... Guess who learned how to sit on command today (Day2) already!!!! Yup, Mr. Ranger Komi! I'm so proud of him!
I thought he had peeing on the peepee pad down pact, as he did yesterday, but today was maybe 50% of the time. We will figure that one out, soon. And the pooing? Well... I need to do some research as I really don't remember how to train for that.
We have a little old (and mostly blind) bunny in our house (Thumper). When Ranger Komi saw him, I guess he expected him to be as playful as a puppy. I think Thumper nearly had a heart attack! Thumper is smart though and comes out of his cage when he doesn't hear "the new guy" running around.
Oh... And my daughter, Juanita, has had her depression cured instantly with the arrival of our boy! (In October, our old guy crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge, and of course we took it hard. But she has changed drastically since). Seeing her smile and hearing her giggle and just be happy again is all from the joy that Ranger Komi brings! She turns 7 on Friday! How perfect is this timing?!
And so, after typing all of this, I will attempt to add some pictures again. If no luck, then I will do so on Monday!
