The Daily Holmes

February 18, 2012

A new report in from Anne.  Holmes has not yet done anything terrible — good dog!  Great owner!

Just wanted to let you know Holmes is doing great.  He is such a good boy!  We went for a ride to that organic dog food store yesterday.  He snacked the first couple days, which I expected, but his eating didn’t pick up after that.  He hasn’t been eating too well, so I got samples of a a few different gluten free foods to try, some frozen raw patties, and some dehydrated raw food.  He liked the dehydrated raw food more than the dry food – he ate pretty well last night.  Tonight I’ll give him the patties mixed with some dry food – I’m pretty sure he’ll like the patties!  He looks a little slimmer this weekend from when I picked him up, so I wanted to get him eating well.

Josh comes home tomorrow, so I’ve got the Thundershirt ready.  He follows me around the house like a shadow, which I love.  He is definitely a very loyal dog.  Chloe is good too, but she is a little more independent with me, and is extremely attached to Josh.  They each have their own person, LOL!

I am taking him to the vet on Monday to get his records in and introduce him.  I ordered the Dremel, so this week I will start working on his nails when it comes.

I’ve been trying to get some good photos, but he moves so quickly!!

I was wondering about the name tag on his collar – I love that! Where did you order it from? {Me – It is a Boomerang Tag]

I also just wanted to keep you posted… I know he means a lot to you and it sounds like he didn’t have a good experience when he was away with one of the handlers, so I just wanted to let you know things are well and he is happy. I can’t wait to start obedience classes with him – I am really looking forward to it.  The classes start in March, but I’m going to start working with him at home.  I hope all is well with you!

Thank you, Anne.  I miss my boy, but know he is happy with you and the kids — watch out, Josh!
