UPDATE - November 4, 2009 - I wanted to give you a little background on the pictures we sent. There is a few of him or him with us on a bed. That is his room, he is able to lay on the bed, look out the window (there is one with the window in the background and that's his view out two of those windows, one window in front of his bed the other in front of his kennel). Those windows he is able to look out: he is hilarious watching us leave and come home, his head is always in the window. I even admit to rolling my window down when I leave and wave to him. The neighborhood kids call him the "neighborhood watch dog" they see him peek out the window when they get off the bus and they absolutely love to pet him. :-)
Us playing with him in those pics on his bed is kind of a morning ritual, assuming neither of us is working we go in there and cuddle and play (the 3 of us).
The one of him on a little white cushion in front of a window is where he sunbathes in the summer (that one he was sleeping after our long walk.
The one of him in the KU Jersey looking out the window (my favorite) Josh loves KU.
One of me kissing him, I think I could kiss him every second of the day he is so cute, especially when his eyes and body get pink at night.
We walk him 2 times a day. I have morning shift and we walk/run about 1 hour and then Josh has night shift and they walk about 30 - 45 minutes. He is a motivator for us to get up and going for sure, I absolutely love it! He is sooo good about being patient and still when I put his gentle leader on.
We love to give him fruit and veggies as treats and he loves yogurt in his food. So he is a very healthy dog... comes along with having a mom as a dietitian I guess.
His name: Chazz Diekmann (fits his personality to a T) I like to call him Chazz the Spaz Diekmann
We are so happy to have him in our family. Can't imagine life without him!
Thanks, Michelle, Josh and Chazz
