The first weekend

I took a few days off (in addition to the Bank Holiday Monday) to allow the little fellow to properly settle in. So we sort of had a long extended party - fun, fun, fun, and fun.

Friday: our first walk through Greenwich Park. A lot easier than we are used to. Fitz has very clear ideas which routes to take (through the rose garden, down the hill and then to the main entrance) - Harley is completely open to suggestions, everything is new and exciting. So we managed a long walk past the observatory, down the other side of the hill and across the lawn to the main entrance. Fitz more or less grudgingly followed us.
Then to The Old Brewery in the Royal Naval College. Good beer, excellent burger and lots of admiration for the puggies. Fitz is used to taking centre stage - but now the audience is divided into puppy-lovers and admirers of age and dignity.

Saturday: house warming party at our neighbour's. Again lots of admiration and excitement - a little too much for the little one. He left a small puddle on the floor - just as expected of a puppy. But he was really good with the children, playing all afternoon. Finally got him tired enough so I actually got a good night's sleep.

Sunday: Female company. We had Molly, a neighbourhood French Bullie, around for the afternoon. She is just one month older than Harley. After a few innocent chases around the garden the two tried some more mature games. Judging from his determination and energy Harley might not have the same embarrassing problem Fitz faced ten years ago: having the once in a lifetime chance to mate and the not knowing how to do it. Poor thing
