The big boy is just fine. Ruth is absolutely crazy about him. It's so funny, he will NOT be ignored. He insists on his nightly walk no matter what the weather & he wants to play tug every night. He will retrieve the same toy over and over and over. If I am trying to read the newspaper, he will stick his head under my hand and bump the paper out of my hand. He definitely demands attention.
He had a vet check up last Saturday (16th) and weighed in at 12 lbs. Linda (the vet) wants him to be about 14. He is sporting a bright red collar and is wearing his Louisville tags proudly.
