Day Two

It's hard to believe that it's only day two! It feels like Bingley's been here for weeks (in the best sense......mainly!). The settling-in has gone incredibly smoothly and he seems to be very contented with his new home. We're still getting to know the rhythm of his day, and he's going to have to learn ours as well; but at the moment we've been allowing him a bit of leeway and giving him some attention whenever he asks. He sleeps a lot, which is nice and gives us chance to catch up with ourselves - though it's difficult to not keep checking him out.

Jane has managed to take a couple of days off work, and today the weather was so nice that we spent much of it in the back yard in the sunshine with Bing. We've bought him quite a few toys to play with and he enjoys those, but his favourite playthings are plastic plant pots! He can't get enough of them, and today has spent hours pushing and chasing them around the yard before sitting back and looking very pleased with himself.

In between those sessions he was happy to sleep, usually very close to whoever was out there with him. At one point we were having a cup of tea together on the bench and Bingley immediately joined us, then curled up underneath and went to sleep. He's definitely starting to feel like part of the family.
