Reeves is great. He's a good boy. I'm especially impressed with how well he did with our long days on Saturday and Sunday. But, no matter how well behaved a new furry member of the family is, they take up a bit of your time. And, so, our schedule today and yesterday looked like this:
5:30am- Get up and (between the two of us) get Reeves pottied, "walked," fed and his bed flushed and dressed
7:30am- Leave for school
Lunch (starts between 11am and 12pm)- Come home to let Reeves out, feed him,take care of his sore and give him a bone and to also eat lunch ourselves before returning to school at 1:30pm
8:15pm- Finish work, go to the store and come home, let Reeves out, feed him and redress his sore
9:30pm- Eat dinner, play on the internet and watch tv
11:30pm- Go to bed
It's exhausting, but it's so nice having Reeves around. It's great having some purpose outside of work. Living without animals is pretty much an impossibility for Ian and I, so he's doing us as much of a favor as we're doing him.
We give him a bone in the afternoon when we're leaving for our second round of teaching to give him something to do. But, he's a social eater, so he doesn't really touch it until we're home with him in the evening. His forever home will have to be one where the people are relatively available to him. He needs the presence of people to be happy. If you're looking for a companion pup, Reeves would be a good choice.
