Chai at 10 weeks old

He is finally home for good! His transition to our house has been so seamless. The first night we put him in his crate to go to sleep at night, he cried for a few hours. The second night he cried for about 45 minutes. Each night he cries a little bit less. It's hard not to go over and comfort him, but he needs to learn that we're the ones in charge, and that whining won't help him get his way. Puppies can be little brats! The breeder was so proud of us when we told her we were standing firm.

He follows Bill up to the chicken coop when he goes to bring them food and water, and loves to romp around in the meadows surrounding the farmhouse. Bill cut trails in the grass so we can take him on runs, it's like an obstacle course. He's also learning that cicadas are a tasty treat, despite me trying to convince him otherwise! We don't know how we ever lived without him.

Corgi Butt!
