Mango’s first day and night home
Yesterday was a big day. It was the day that i had been waiting for a very long time. Yesterday was the day when Smelly and i picked up our Shiba Inu puppy Mango from our breeder Leslie Engen.
We arrived slightly before 1000 at Leslie’s beautiful home, earlier than usual because we had a noon appointment with a well-known dog trainer Diane Rich. On arrival, we were greeted by Leslie’s Japanese Akita Kai and her Leonberger Hef.
We played with Mango and her two other remaining litter mate.
After signing the contract and listening to some advices given by Leslie, she gave us some toys and some treats for Mango, including a stuffed toy with KD’s (Mango’s mom) scent.
Mango, as expected, threw up in his crate while on our way back home in his first journey in a car. The first thing we did on arrival at home with Diane, was to take Mango to the backyard. After some hesitation, Mango peed near edge of the paved rock and Rosemary bushes. He then found a hiding spot behind the stone Lion statue.
Mango spent most of the late afternoon napping.
