Have you ever made a move with a pet? We’d not before now and what with Flash being a sensitive* little soul I was a bit worried about it to be honest. I knew he’d love having a garden but a whole new house? Well, I wasn’t sure how he’d cope with the rest of it.
But, do you know what, I don’t think any of it has phased him. He loves the garden, as expected. He loves it even more since we discovered that the kids in the school behind are rubbish tennis players and their balls end up in our garden all the time. He loves the extra space. He loves bounding up the stairs, both flights of them. Within 2 days he was turning into the right front garden coming home from walks. he still hates the bath. He’s found his favourite chairs to nap in, and figured out that he now has 2 window seats to sit at and bark at the neighbours/passers by. He still takes himself for a nap in our bed when he’s shattered.
He’s still as crackers and as naughty as ever, so I don’t think he’s been very traumatised. He’s just been very good at making himself at home!
