Almost six months since he came to stay with me, and he’s doing well. So much healthier than Zippo was.
I have only left him behind three times when I needed to go somewhere, and each time he escaped and wound up at a neighbor’s. Since the third time I either find a dog-sitter or take him with me everywhere. Dogs are amazing creatures: he knows when I change into good clothes that it means a trip someplace and starts howling.
I do volunteer drives for Island Senior Resources, taking people to medical appointments. He comes with us, and everyone falls in love with him. As I wait outside a clinic or office I’ve even had staff come out to ooh and aah over him — and take photos! I have a supply of WAMAL bookmarks with him on them, and hopefully that creates some interest.
I went to the store him, including the Country Store in Freeland. It’s one of the few places I feel ok bringing him in with me. As usual he was a big hit with customers and staff (so boring.) Happily he didn’t pee on anything, but it was a mistake bringing him down the dog treat aisle.
The clerk at checkout took his photo and I gave her a bookmark since she said her daughter might be interested in getting a big dog.
He is dog #62 that I’ve adopted, and appears that he will wind up in my Top Ten favorite dogs if he keeps this up.
Thanks for helping me find him.
