Yesterday we closed the deal and got the keys to our very first house. The first thing we did was show Loki his new home. Of all the houses we have ever taken him to (my aunt’s home and my parents’ home), this house was the one he loved the best. We entered through the garage and walked into the basement. He immediately loved it. Sniffing around every corner and running in circles.
At one point, he stopped, sniffed the doors that enclose the laundry machines, and was about to mark, while Yun and I gasped and yelled, “No!” Luckily for us, he understood us. Phew!
We opened the backdoor and let him into the small fenced yard. Wow, he was in heaven now. He marked both the big tree and the little tree. Then did his Shiba 500 with a huge smile plastered on his face.
Afterwards, we proceeded upstairs to the main level, which had hardwood flooring. Loki didn’t seem to mind too much. He really hates tile floor, because he slips on it. But he was confident enough on the hardwood floor.
It didn’t take long before we lost him. Where is he? He’s got to be in one of the carpeted areas – the top floor or the basement? I yelled for him to come. Looks like it’s the top floor. He looked so cute as he stood at the top of the stairs, looked down at me, and cocked him head to the side, as if to say, what do you want? I’m busy exploring here.
He explored the house faster than we did. He’s not one to stick close to his humans. He wants to explore on his own. What fun!
We’re not exactly sure when move-in day will be, but it’ll be soon.
