I have to admit, it was incredibly stressful bringing Sherman in. Dog-arranging is more art, than science. I was initially planning on introducing Sherman to the girls tomorrow, through the crate. But everyone wanted to meet, and Mina was calm but stressed. She toted a kong around the whole time, but she would take treats and sniff Sherman politely through the cage. Celeste did not issue one growl.
Everyone is zonked out right now. I think Sherman will always have to be where me and the girls are.
I will feel slightly bad for the neighbors when I have to go to work. I come home at lunch, but I don't think Sherman is going to be quiet. Oh well, I will try and get him to mold with the crate tomorrow and Monday, my weekend.
