|Hi to all the wonderful people at the Milo Foundation,
All is well and Randal is settling in well. We are working on his issues and fears.
We have found he is leery of most men so we take time introducing him on his terms. He shows signs of abuse which tells me why he has been placed in different homes over his short life.
Sudden and loud noises are disturbing to him. He would gobble his meals as if the last meal he would receive and now eats at a comfortable pace. He stays close to me at all times. We take baby steps with him, not to much at one time.
He is very loving, knows when its time to go to bed and snores a bit. He loves to run around the property when encouraged but is happiest in the house having his belly and under his chin rubbed. He loves the water so bathing is no problem, just turn on the hose and he will be wet in no time, apply/rub in shampoo and ready for rinse and play.
I cannot tell you how lucky for Jim and I and especially Randal that we found each other. We love that we can make a positive life for him. As mentioned, baby steps, baby steps. He has already made positive changes in the short time with us.
Thank you all again
