I adopted Gator last weekend. I wanted to follow up and tell you how
wonderful it is to have him in my household. I have renamed him Samson,
otherwise known as Sammy. He so sweet and mellow and very smart. Believe it
or not, he's already sitting on command (when there's a cookie or treat
involved, of course). He doesn't love his crate, but is settling in nicely.
Although my cat is still none too pleased that there's a puppy around, Sammy
hasn't intruded on her in any way; he just sits down and looks at her - no
jumping, barking or growling, etc. :) He doesn't like to have a leash on
yet, though he's becoming more comfortable, but he loves going for walks
once we get out of the house and he can follow along with my older dog.
Speaking of my older dog, they play like crazy outside, but we're still
adjusting in the house - Sammy's often too close to the food/bed/toys, etc.,
so Duffy has to make his dominance known.
At any rate, I wanted to thank you for what you do and let you know how much
Sammy (formerly known as Gator) is loved already.
