Is there a doctor in the house? It is my pleasure to introduce Doc. McSteamy or McDreamy is more appropriate for this phenomonal boy. Doc is one of 5 dogs from South Dakota surrendered from a "going out of business" breeder. Thanks to Rona for the buff, polish and vetting and Karen and Kathy for transporting Nina 10-141 and Doc. I am in love again. It's so easy to get lost in Doc's eyes and fall in love with this young boy. Doc is not used to human affection or interaction until now. He didn't have a name prior to rescue. He is acclimating slowly to living inside and cautious of everything including MiMi, our 10# cat. He doesn't know what to think of Heather, who is always ready to play and chase.

It's day 2 and what a difference. Doc's personality is shining. Out for 2 walks in the evening. His tail is constantly wagging and he is coming to us for attention and love. He let me clip a couple tiny mats around his ears, no problem. He is a mama's boy. Stays by my side or very close. He is butting in for his share of attention when we're focused on Heather and Meg. There is a skip in his step and he is a very happy boy. He is not responding to Doc. We've been calling him Brave Boy and Sweet Boy but he is just so darn beautiful, so we've settled on Orlando. You can name him what you like. No guarding, begging or wolfing down his food. He takes food & treats gently. He has a gentle, soft mouth .

Day 3, No accidents in the bedroom last nite. He keeps his crate clean all day. He is going through the doorway to outside without hesitation and down for bathroom without me. He stayed home with Meg for about 2 hours while Heather & I went to a motorcycle party. No problems. We'll try free roam tomorrow.

Orlando is very itchy. He goes to the vet tomorrow for "the snip snip". Poor guy. And we'll figure out the scratching. It's progressed since he's gotten here. Hope he's not allergic to me :0(

He is a sweet, sweet boy. Can't get enough love. He had free roam with Meg today and no destruction or accidents. So, I think we can assume he is housetrained.

Paws crossed his itchies aren't serious and his "snip" goes well.
