Little Sonny is Here!

We picked our little Sonny from the airport Tuesday night. The trip frpm Boise (through Seattle) to Chgo was a long one but he did just fine. The weather really cooperated as we caught a mid 70s day. Today it's going to hit a 100 degrees plus. He cam in on Alaska Air and the have a specialized pet transport service with climate controlled cabins. They were awesome and even called us to give us a status on the flight and exact instructions where to pick up Sonny.
Sonny was great on the ride home and when Rocco saw him it was like "pure joy". He immediately came over and started licking him. The pup was crawling all over him and Rocco just sat there enjoying it. Rocco has barely eaten since Milo died and for the last 2 days, he has consumed over 6 lbs of raw. He even shared his big knuckle bone with Sonny. I know that will change, but for now, he's being a perfect gentleman. Since Milo died Rocco would just lay in the spot in the kitchen where he passed and was just sad. He has made a complete 180 and it looks like old Rocco is back! We couldn't ask for more out of a 7 mo old puppy. The breeder had Sonny on a mostly raw diet so there really is no transition for us. He has a great appetite and since he was home raised, his social skills for an 8 wk old puppy are awesome!
Here's some pics of Sonny...

|2nd Pic: Is Rocco auditioning for an award as a contortionist? LOL! Rocco is just 7 months, right? Or IS that Rocco? It sure doesn't look like a GSD in that cage!|
Edit: never mind, I finally sorted the picture out! At first I couldn't see where his head was, and it looked like his whole body was red. Now I see the head and the mask next to Sonny's cage. And he STILL looks really contorted... :)
I am SO happy to hear Sonny had brought sunshine back into Rocco's life! What GREAT news!
My male GSD went into mourning when my cat was run over by a car. So, I had to go out and get him a new friend: a female GSD pup! That worked like a charm, too!

He is charming, and I hope that he heals the hearts of all of you. I went to see a friends new 8 week old pup last night, and there is nothing that lifts the spirit and radiates pure joy like a shepherd pup!
Am looking forward to seeing him grow and seeing pics of him and Rocco together. Congratulations on a lovely boy - may he be everything you wish for and more.
