Hi Mary and Bev,
Jan decided to let me do tonight’s update as she’s busy doing banking and getting ready for Willy’s first visit to out vet tomorrow.
Today was day three with Wonderful Willy, and it just keeps getting better and better! This morning started out great with me taking both boys out to do their morning business as soon as they got up. Willy did both duties within about three minutes and was back waiting at the door for Fred to finish. Back into the crates while I got their breakfast ready and then I released the beasts to devour their food. Fred eats in the kitchen and Willy in the back room, just outside his pen. Then they switch positions to check and see if the other left any morsels uneaten. Then back into their crates for half an hour to let their meals settle, and back outside for some exercise.
Both Willy and Fred seem comfortable initiating play and both are okay if the other isn’t interested at the moment. You’d think they’d been together all their lives! Today Willy spotted a squirrel and chased it up a tree, then tried to climb the tree after it. He was so determined, I actually thought for a moment he might do it! They had such a good time in the back yard this morning that I decided to bypass the morning walk and just let them enjoy themselves. By the time they were finished they were ready for a morning nap. After an hour or so the came out and had a good play in the house, then back out for another bathroom break.
Willy has been amazingly swift to learn the cable run. He remembers which side of which tree he has to go on and rarely wraps himself around a tree. At the same time both boys are getting better at not getting their cables crossed. I thought it would take a lot longer than this to teach them but everything is going so well.
This afternoon we left them alone in their crates for an hour or so while we went to visit Jan’s Mom in the nursing home. There was no problem when we went out and both were sleeping when we came home. Tomorrow we’ll do it again a few more times to get ready for the work week but it certainly doesn’t appear that it will be an issue.

Thanks for helping us with our adoption. Everyone involved was really great and we think we made a great choice. Buddy is a great dog, he gets along with our old lady Missy great, she was a little nervous around him at first but she is warming up to him every day. We have no problems with him, and he settled in here like he lived here all his life. He loves going on rides to the parks and lakes in our area and loves trying to chase everything that crosses his path. During the week he goes for two walks every day and every weekend is somewhere special, I don't think he has seen the same park twice yet. He runs and swims all weekend and still doesn't tire, Val, Missy, and I have a hard time keeping up with him. He is a great addition to our family and we couldn't have asked for a better dog. He does have one problem I forgot to mention, thunderstorms. He gets really angry at the storms and runs around barking, not because he's scared, just angry at the storm. We are working on it but don't really care because he makes up for it with everything else he does. We really love him and would like to thank everyone at Col. Potter.
