    Hiya,,
    Just my second post to say our little chunky pot belly is now a very happy and healthy 1+ year old,,,
    He has been fantastic,, as a puppy our two Burmese cats keep him and them busy and intrigued,,, often he would drop off to sleep where he were playing lol,
    He seemed to make it very easy for us to train him and a few yards from a forest made his socialising with other dogs such a wonderful experience,,,
    Yes,,, He will eat the whole fridge given the chance but his pedigrees come from working lines so he is very lithe and agile,,,watching him jump over laying trees and streams is a joy although it concerns me how fast he goes,,, we watch his diet very carefully,,
    He is still learning that not all people and dogs don’t love him but he’s getting there lol,,
    Recall is good unless he sees one of his friends or a squirrel,,,
    He has received nothing but love and affection ,,,
    just a stern voice when he is a little naughty or excited but at times, he would test the patience of St Peter lol
    We love him so very much,so intelligent and seemingly sensitive,,,
    Our very old (13) female Burmese cat is often picked up by him and laid gently into her bed
    So he softly carries her for 15-20 ft and she loves it,,
    A little new thing he has developed is not really going for his late night wee lol
    Last night again when I woke him he totally ignored me and wouldn’t move and after a stopped he went back into a deep sleep,,,
    He has between 3-4+ hours a day exercise but after early evening he just don’t seem interested and when he goes out n the morning only does a small pee followed by a few more,,
    His urine is a great colour and no untoward smells so I guess his exercise, combined with his playing with cats equals sleep time and stop waking me up in the evening dad lol,,
    Thanks for reading,,,jay
