I have meant to send you an update on Bilbo for ages. He has become a very special part of our family. With me working from home, and Bilbo being so very easy to bring with places I am really pleased to say it is very rare he stays home alone. He is so well behaved (no barking, no weird habits) that we can take him basically everywhere!
He loves to be outside and sticks to us like glue when we are out. He still has some training to do but things like house training are a thing of the past. I can't even remember the last time he had an accident...he just tells us when he wants to go out. He's a smart dog.
And what a cuddler! We call him the Bilbwarmer, or The Bilb2000. He likes my sister's dogs but especially loves Aaron's parents bigger dogs and he gets to hang out about once a week with one or the other. He has also developed no interest in my small animals -- not a lot of killer instinct which works perfectly for us. I've also noticed a generally less anxious attitude around new people, and it always makes everyone smile when he sneaks onto the lap of someone he just met or people he knows looking for that ever sought after petting.
Anyway just wanted to say how special he is and how good he is doing, and how happy we are to have him. We could not be feel luckier with this little guy. Thank you!
