Life in the zoo > Leash boy

Posted 01 August 2012

For the time being I've decided to keep a leash attached to Harry when he's not in his crate. My big challenge with him is getting him to poop outside on a leash. He's used to pooping in privacy while turned out in the back yard. I don't have a back yard so he needs to learn to do it on leash. If left to his own devices Harry will take off...

Life in the zoo > A little bit of progress

Posted 27 July 2012

I can tell that things will progress slowly with Harry. He is very shy and untrusting. On the other hand he is docile and will do what he is shown to do.

Life in the zoo > Surgery Day

Today Gixxer had his neuter surgery. The rescue rep sent me an email at 5 am to remind me. You'd think it was her son having the operation! I thought it was cute anyway. She emailed me again after she picked him up. She said everything went well and he  also had his 3 year rabies shots. Apparently the only complication that might arrive is excessive...

Life in the zoo > Shopping for the new arrival

Posted 19 July 2012

Today I took Fifi with me to Petsmart to pick up a few things for her new brother. I needed a crate and possibly a bed.

I bought a soft-sider canvas portable crate because I go to my partner's house to stay on weekends. This way I can easily take the crate back and forth. Apparently Gix is used to a wire crate, so I hope there won't be any...
