Bowdie is continuing to do very well in our home. We’ve been going on lots of walks, most recently a long one to the beach. We’ve walked with some friends and their dogs, big and small, and he’s seemed to really enjoy the company. Bowdie and our cat are really liking eachother. I’m waiting for the day I catch them cuddling together! Bowdie absolutely loves the company of my 10 year old son. He hangs with him whether it’s in the yard or just in his room playing video games.
He’s an absolute joy to have around - so loving and so sweet. When you’re petting him he looks at you with such appreciation and love! He’s such a happy boy.
Quincy sure does love the ball! She’s practically smiling!
Yesterday I took Bowdie to the beach. I thought he’d be a little nervous about being someplace new but he jumped right out of the car, head up in the air and tail pointed straight out and wagging. He was so excited to be there! He got his feet a little wet in the ocean and we walked the beach. We went home and he got a bath! He loved the towel drying! He was a happy boy in his crate with his freshly washed blanket. He is getting more and more comfortable here and is a great house dog. He loves his bed(s).
We took Bowdie to a nearby field over the weekend. He had fun running around with his new buddy!
Bowdie has adjusted just fine to his new foster home. He goes for daily walks and seems to enjoy meeting other dogs. He walks so proudly with his tail nice and pointed straight out. He seems to really enjoy car rides and even when we go out for walks he always get excited and goes for the car first thinking he’s getting in. Hopefully he’s not too disappointed when it’s just a walk. He does great around kids and enjoys their company.
He hangs out with us in the evenings in the living room while we relax and watch TV and then around 9:30 or so he’s ready for bed. I tell him “in” and point to the crate and he goes right in and settles in for the night. We’re working on “sit” and he seems to understand “Bowdie, come” very well. He and our cat are doing great together. They seem to want to play together because when they get around each other and touch noses, Bowdies tail wags like crazy and our cats tail swaggers happily.
I’m not much of a runner but during our walks I will run a bit. Bowdie’s got a great running pace for me and never pulls, even when walking. He’s cute because he always looks over at me as if to make sure I’m doing OK. He loves to play fetch in the yard with his ball. He lets me know he’s done when he fetches and instead of bringing the ball back to me, he goes inside the house with it. That pretty much tells me he’s had enough.
I have yet to hear him bark! Even when the dog behind our house barks, Bowdie just ignores him. He’s very mellow, very quiet and pretty well mannered. Bowdie has fit right into our routine with no problems. He is a happy boy!
