I'm happy to report that Wally is doing really well. We're getting more and more familiar with him and his little subtle ways... when he wants to go out, a lot of times he sniffs and licks or bites my toes. Not hard of course, but it's his way of telling me to put my shoes on and take him out. When he licks my face, he's hungry. Speaking of which, he's always hungry! He's 16.2 lbs now...when we first brought him home, he was about 14lbs. We're not letting him get past 17lbs...if anything, I think he's probably better off on the smaller side, for the sake of his back.
The Arroyo is a good place for him... Lacey Park and the park near us... but when we "get a bad feeling" about something, he stays home. What can I say... we're a little sensitive to certain things... every time something bad has happened to Spot, I had " a feeling" that I ignored and that is why I don't "ignore" anymore.
Aside from all the mean dogs around here, I can see Wally being the total nature dog....floating in a canoe with Papa as he fishes or hiking along side of him. He's a cool little dog that way, such the little man and so eager to explore. I always thought little dogs were a little wimpy and Wally is the little explorer and so brave.
Mimi hates it when he's up there... this is HER spot and she stares at him like she hates him. I think he's cute, even when his butt slides off the chair and lands on my head.
