The quarantine staff have been fantastic and he has been relocated to another pen where he can see the day's activities and where much more is happening than where he was before. When I visited him yesterday he was much brighter and more energetic. The staff also said that he was a different dog. I was able to stay with him for nearly two hours and we alternated doing some work, playing, being brushed, just resting or watching other dogs playing with their owners. Naturally he barked when I left him but I did not hear him in the carpark
One week to go!!!!! Jochen comes home on Sunday, 2nd December. I can't think about much else. My almost total focus is on Jochen being home again.
