K.C. has been a delightful and welcome addition to our family,
especially to his new big sister Muffin. He is more perfect than we ever
could have imagined. I just can't put into words how really loving and
sweet he is. We knew Muffin was ready for a new little brother, but
could we find the perfect one? We did, and it was K.C. He is absolutely
the greatest!!! He has allowed Muffin to maintain the alpha in her,
being ever respectful of her.
It was a bit touch and go at first as Muffin was very territorial. With
work, patience and love she has really stepped up to the plate. She is being
the model big sister to him. We are amazed how far she has come with
acceptance and love for him. She now lets K.C. share the same chair with her
and I, and believe me that's a BIG THING!
Play time is a really big thing, especially their SMACKDOWN sessions. They
run and chase each other all over the house from one end to the other, then
outside around the yard and back in again. K.C. likes to initiate a lot of
the matches, but Muffin does her share too! It's amazing how fast they both
are. They continue to share all their toys with each other, playing with
their squeakers and tug of war too! K.C. is also gotten into radio control
cars. He loves chasing Tim's cars and trucks in the back yard. He is so fast
and has learned to anticipate their every move. At first he did not know
what to do but Muffin quickly showed him, gently stopping the car, letting
go and then waiting for it to start again. K.C. caught on quickly and enjoys
his daily radio controlling with his Dad.
We have had to work a bit with the house training as K.C. still has an
occasional accident...he is still under construction you might say!
It's been a learning experience for all of us. Everyday is a new
adventure. As for his walks and leash training, he is doing tremendous. He
gets so excited he wants to pick up his own leash and take himself to the
door. He gets walks daily and is doing great!
We love every minute with him and can't say how pleased we all are with him
and how well he has fit into our family! We love him very, very much and
hope everyone else is as happy with their adoptions as we are!!!!
