Favorite Walk: anywhere with squirrels and ground squirrels and off leash
Best Tricks: finding things, tracking
Arrival Story: I previously was given a GSD in need of a home. She was my soulmate. (I will post her soon, Rosie.) Anyway, she made me love the breed. So I went looking and found this "last of the litter" timid dog. He is now 120 pounds of pure muscle and my best friend.
Bio: Lobo saved me from a bear encounter when I was camping in the back of my truck. I got up in the middle of the night needing to relieve myself. I was going to scramble out of my truck when Lobo made a huffing, low growling noise and obviously could see something out there. I got my flashlight and saw a bear! Right at my tailgate. I could have stepped right on it. So, I just held it until daylight. Lobo's noises eventually turned to loud, outright barking and the bear probably left at that point, but I waited until daylight. I have learned that when Lobo makes those huffing sounds, he has seen something that he is not quite sure of. Including suspiciously behaving people.
For all the gifts you have been giving us.
We have not been able to respond as we are having trouble with the computer and the puppy is keeping Mom super busy. But we sure appreciate how much you care about us. We care about you too.
Kelly will be writing a diary entry soon. She is coming along quite well.
Squirrel is happy because it has warmed up and she is resuming her leash walks.
Kitcat is trying very hard to cuddle with Kelly. Won't be long now. But at the moment she has to swat Kelly to get some respect. Actually got a claw in her nose yesterday where Mom had to remove it gently. No blood. Pretty sure they will get along. And Squirrel just strolls by without trouble. The only time it get tense is if the pup just comes in from outside and the cats are there. She chases them. House is full of barricades but she can now leap over most of them. Kelly has her super energetic puppy moments where she won't listen. But she is generally very good and Mom learned a lot about how to manage this at puppy class and reactive dog class.
I don't remember ever being that crazy! BOL
We are getting some gifts and messages but cannot respond. Computer freezes up. Dogsters isn't working well.
So, we shall say thank you all. We love you and will miss you. Very sad that things came to this on what was a really cool place to share and hang out.
Lobo and family
