Hello team Caessr
Le woof woof (French accent) from Jamie and bonjour from us two. We arrived here 1st March leaving a snowy Uk and came to freezing cold temperatures here. It didn't deter Jamie (water babe) on his first lake walk, he has a natural instinct and in the warmer climate, he does it to cool off. He certainly is not a sun seeker, the first warm days of Spring found him in the shadiest part of the garden. i think he must have been a husky in a previous life.
He was a hit with friends who stayed a few weeks ago, he is not a "dog person" (own admission) and she is a cat lover but they fell in love with him. He was so quiet and calm and they soon realised we could take him everywhere with us, they were really surprised at the acceptance of dogs in public places. We had to make sure he was tethered the morning they left as there would have been a dognapping. We did have to warn them to shut their door at all times or there would be a lot of clothing missing when they got back to UK.
I got my trusty dog grooming kit out the other week for the first time over here. He was okay to start then jumped off the table, he's been watching too much football and thought it was half time!!, but I got him back on the table and tried to finish the job. He's such a character, give him a ball or toy and he wont give it up but wants you to have it, pushing it into your hands but teeth clamped, tail wagging like crazy and that grin. When we succeed, he's a very happy chappie and will chase it for ages. I don't think he had many toys before.
I am enclosing photo's.
Regards and thanks for what you do. We, personally, are grateful we found our lovely boy through you.
Jennifer, Joseph & Jamie
