Harvey Moon has been with us for four weeks now and he has come a long way in that time. He has grown in confidence and likes nothing better than to play with Elsa. When she has had enough she gives a bit of squeal and then Blake moves in and warns him off. Then it is Harvey turn to squeal "It wasn't me, honest Blake - she started it." Then he and Blake have a friendly tussle, usual Blake lands up on his back with Elsa nibbling at his feet and Harvey trying the Dracula bite! But they do it all in good fun. He travels very well in the car, either on the back seat or in the rear and is happy to curl up there whilst we shop etc. He has found his bark, mainly copying Elsa I think and he has found Twix the cat! He can stare at her for ages but she treats him with utter distain, so he is a bit confused Like a lot of dogs, he is not keen on fast moving cars when we are walking through the village, but is great on lead once we are in the field. We are working on the car thing and I think there is an improvement. All these things take time and patience.
We had four visiting grandchildren and parents over the week-end (aged 12, 11, 11, and 9) and I wondered how Harvey would be but I can say that he was absolutely brilliant. He was not fazed by having so many people about - all the more people to cuddle him. He seemed quite in his element. We were very proud of him.
Harvey is a wonderful little chap and really deserves his very own home. I amazed at how well he has settled here and I think as long as he has lots of love - cuddles are his speciality - , he will settle in a new home very well.
