Default Murray is home!!

I can't believe how wonderful today has gone. We took Bear to meet Murray and they liked each other right away! They sniffed and began walking around together, neither dog was stressed or anything. We completed the adoption forms and put Murray and Bear in the car. All the way home, Murray kept resting his head on mine and my husbands shoulders. His eyes just shimmered with trust. Bear wasn't jealous or anything.

When we got home, we put them out in the yard together. They played a little, peed alot and Bear showed him around.

Then the big test, it was time to bring him in the house to meet - THE CATS. I thought for sure there'd be a squabble or two, a scratched nose, cats in an uproar, etc. Imagine our surprise when Murray walked in and totally ignored Jake and Frisky - and they ignored him! The cats just sat there, they weren't scared, mad, nothing. They never even hissed.

Now Murray is busy getting used to his surroundings, sniffing everything. He keeps coming up to us for some reassurance. He is a total sweetheart. He has to take it easy for the next 3 weeks because of being treated for heartworm and we have to fatten him up because he's too skinny. I can't believe the fool that had this precious dog and abused that privelage. I am so happy with Murray!

Thanks so much everyone! Smkie - Murray said thanks for the hug (he loves to be loved)

One small problem: Murray likes to lift his leg, a lot, and not always outside. They said he was housetrained and he does go out a lot. I'm assuming he is just marking his territory. Twice last night and once this morning, he peed - just a little, right in front of us.

Anything I should do besides a sharp NO and immediate put him outside?
