  9. Thanks, all. We’ve enjoyed reading all of your comments on the blog this week!

    I should add that ONE of the 1,000 words for this post could be “misleading.” 😉

    Yes, he looks happy in the photo. But it’s probably NOT because of US. Behind the camera, his foster mother is waving a toy.

    He did warm up to us a bit by the time this photo was taken toward the end of our hour together. We’re glad he was comfortable enough for this photo to be taken, but he’s probably not quite ready to pack up and go home with us just yet! 🙂
