The puppy arrived, she's a Mini Shar Pei, five months old. He took her to the vet, and she has kennel cough and a mild ear infection. She hasn't been chipped yet, but he will have her done at the next visit in two weeks.

She's been very slowly sniffing her way around the apartment, getting used to things. But late Friday evening she slept in his arms for several hours, so there is definitely some bonding going on. He wants to take her to his parents' house on Sunday, and I advised him to take it slowly and let her adjust to the new routine before he took her anywhere.

The book also arrived, and he was very grateful for it. I hope it helps him as he and she get used to each other. As I said, I really want this to be a good experience for him.

Now, he's thinking about Pet Insurance, and has been looking at some plans. Do any of you have any experience with any particular plan?
