The Very Busy Puppy
We made it. Vanni spent his first night in the Big Pasture and was curled up in the mud with Ruthie when I went out to feed this morning. He looked pooped.
But actually, the most obvious sight when I opened the gate was a pile of alpaca food pans in the middle of the pasture. It seems our little boy has a bit of an OCD issue. At least he's the orderly type. He had carried every one of the pans out of the alpaca pen and tossed it into a pile in the middle of the pasture. I am still laughing.
He was happy to see me and came up for his morning scritches, but then went back to lie down in the mud with his buddy. I really do want him to bond to her and to the pasture, and begin to call the whole place home. Hopefully this will keep him from wanting to roam. To begin, we're just going to do nights. I have to separate them when they eat anyway, because Vanni is a major Nosy Britches, and Ruth then has to defend her food. So tonight after they have their supper, we'll do this again.
I think this time, I'm going to make sure the water hose is out of reach. That could have been bad. Silly boy...
