Thanks for the pictures Fran. He looks terrific. I wish I could grab him and give him a hug. As a breeder I can't help but notice his nicely trimmed nails. Makes me proud of him and his owner. You sure are doing a great job with him!
Thanks Kevin. Needless to say, he is our pride and joy. He is excellent with nail trimming. After each nail is done, I give him a tiny smidget of his favourite treat. So, knowing he is going to get treats throughout the nail trimming session, he is an superb manicure client. He has also become very comfortable with getting little sponge baths in our laundry room sink. Some of the walking areas we go to are a little mucky at this time of year, and he comes home looking dirty. I use a handtowel and a tiny bit of puppy shampoo and tidy him up. He now knows it is a part of going on a great, fun walk, and I never get any complaints from him.
We could not have asked or dreamed of a better dog. The joy he has brought into our home is beyond remarkable. Last night when I was making 'deluxe' Kraft macaroni and cheese for us (with garlic, hot dogs and vegetables added) both Darrel and I laughed because we mentioned that we are more concerned about what goes into Kipawa's (and all of our animals') mouth than we are about what goes into our mouths!
I KNOW he would want to give you a big hug too, as would Darrel and I love to hug you and Therese for lighting up our world.
