Hanging out

Gigi isn't thrilled about sharing a bed, but Harper will
move in on any dog and any bed if there's room for her.
There's less walking this week for a couple reasons: 1. mowing and other yard work; and 2. my van doesn't need to make any unnecessary trips until it gets new brakes and inspection on Thursday. We've postponed the Atlas adoption until next week or the following weekend because the adopters have house guests this weekend and I'd rather do it when they have time to devote to the new dog. I heard from Sam's adopter and he is doing well in his new home. I've been giving Atlas and Kip more indoor time this week, at least in the evenings, to give them more household experience. They are both doing very well. Harper is doing well, still being Maya's shadow. She follows me around the house but still won't actually come to me unless I'm sitting down or in bed.
Atlas hanging out in the bedroom with the gang for the evening.

Harper next to Maya, and that's Theo sitting near
the door, ready to get up and go outside.
This morning Harper jumped up on the bed to lay down next
to the still sleeping Maya.

Trooper and Maya
Clay was out of town Monday night, so
Gigi, Maya, and Trooper filled his space.
Harper watches me a lot, still trying to decide if I'm to be
trusted, I guess.

Atlas, wanting attention.
Vince doesn't like to share the bed either, but Harper
doesn't care and doesn't ask, she just moves in.

We keep an extra sheet spread over the pillows
during the day because Trooper or Gigi both use them.
Harper sharing with Trooper. I guess the only dog I haven't
seen her share a bed with is Theo, because he fills the entire bed.

Harper and Kip in the kitchen, either helping me cook
or watching me eat. These two play together sometimes.

Kip really is attentive. Partly that's just
being a puppy, but probably also because he
can't hear, he watches everything.

Harper is always nearby, but out of reach.
Whenever I need to get a leash on her I
have to sort of chase her into a crate and
then reach in to attach the leash.
Kip up front, with Harper peaking
from behind the trash can. She
likes to have a quick get-a-way route
available to her at all times.

I love pics of all your dogs:-)! But, I am totally falling for Harper! She is just adorable! If I didn't have five dogs and a cat already...
