Moose is such a sweetie — when he’s not all wound up! He’s been going through a phase where all he wants to chew on is whatever part of me he can get his mouth around. He’s a funny little guy, too. I think I must have spent a couple hundred dollars on toys, and what are his favorite things? Cardboard boxes and empty soda bottles! He’s such a kid! But it has made for some pretty funny photos and videos.
Moose is also growing like a weed! I can’t believe that he’s practically doubled in size since I picked him up. And I can’t wait to be able to take him to puppy class and the groomer. With all that silver, he’ll be a dashing little man — like he wasn’t hard to resist in the first place!
I can tell already that he’s going to be extremely bright (though it’s dangerous when your dog is smarter than you are). I didn’t have to teach him to fetch! As soon as he was comfortable enough to play with me, which took a couple of days, he just brought the toys back so I could throw them again! I’ve had dogs that never mastered that skill.
He also made his first trip to Duke yesterday to spend the day with me and my labmates. I was a bit apprehensive, since he really doesn’t like being left alone (god forbid mom wants to take a shower!), but he was great. He played a little, and slept a lot. I even got to sneak off to the restroom a couple of times. But, since he was immensely popular, I think he’ll be going back.
Moose has attached a few of his favorite photos, so you’ll recognize him when he comes. He sends a wag, and wants me to tell you he’s looking forward to seeing you again. But now he’s sleepy, so he’ll talk to you soon!
Thanks for bringing us together!
Christine and Moose
