Wanted to let you know how Noah, now Murphy, is doing. He has settled in
perfectly. Would play ball non-stop, and has learned to toss the ball onto
my computer keyboard if I've been working too much. Snuggling in a chair
during tv time, he is known to snore quite loudly. He and Tess (our other
dog) are getting along just fine. He
is a pro on a leash... and is the fastest dog at the dog park. In fact,
he is a bit of a ball hog, in that he gets everyone else's balls first. He
does, however, return them to the person who threw them.
He still needs work coming when called, and can jump a fence in a wink...
but he's doing much better with that. In the first few weeks, whenever by
daughter's boyfriend came over and gave her a hug, he would nip at his
heels... not sure whether I wanted to train him out of that, kind of liked
it, but he has stopped that behavior also.
He does great with car rides.... but hasn't yet learned the joy of
looking out the window. He did great at Christmas with a house full of
people, and is doing really well. We love him so much, and he keeps us
laughing and amused all day.
