Hunter settling in

Good morning to you; I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  Unfortunately I didn't get any photos last night with Lily and the grands-Hunter is still pretty unsure of his new home and family and being a bit timid  I decided not to press our luck. He didn't even play with Lily like we thought he would.  So far, he is easy and I'm hoping that in the coming days he'll relax and feel totally comfortable with us.  Bedtime was one source of uncertainty; he knew to lie down on his bed but it was a hot night and I could tell he wasn't used to the heat or being without his old pack. He would come and sit up next to the bed(he probably already has me figured out, being a softie).  So after he kept roaming(I was afraid he might have an accident), I held him for awhile but he kept panting a lot, so I took him downstairs for some water.  At that point, it was so much cooler downstairs that I decided to just sleep on the couch-after all he had been really comfortable on it earlier in the evening.  He did really well throughout the night and let me know at 3:15 a.m. that he needed out-he went out and then headed back in.  He fell back to sleep, and woke up ready to play around 5:30a.m.
He's eaten his breakfast, gone outside and taken care of business and stays pretty close to me when inside.  Although our kiddos came over last night,  I'm hoping that we can just let him settle in today and the tomorrow; on Monday he goes to the vet for a check up.  I think I'll give him about a week or so before we have him groomed, don't want to overload his senses.
Have a great day my friends.
Noreen, with a sleeping Hunter at my feet.
