After dinner last night, Barbara and I loaded Colin up and drove over to see his original family. Their daughter, Ashlynn, had really wanted to see Colin, but at the last minutes she was invited to go to Carowinds with friends, so Colin missed seeing her again. Here’s Colin with Scarlett.
And here’s Minnie, Colin’s mom. She’s a smooth-coat, as is Colin, and his markings are very similar to hers. She’s a fast mover, and almost impossible to shoot a good image of, even with the low shutter latency of a DSLR.
Although he did eventually get snout-to-snout with Minnie and two of his remaining siblings, Colin was quite timid and subdued. He didn’t seem sorry when we left. It wasn’t until later that Barbara mentioned he might have been worried that we were going to leave him there. He was carsick (again) on the ride home, but as soon as he got back home he started acting normally again. We promised Colin we’d never leave him anywhere, or if we did that we’d always come back to get him.
