Sawyer has made a amazing turn around the last couple of months. He has been busy watching and observing my pack to finally learn what a awesome life that he has ahead of him. He knows he will always have a full bowl of food and treats waiting for him. He even sits now without any commands before he is given his food!
He has turned into my shadow following me everywhere, even hogging my yoga mat while I attempt to work out around him. Sawyer allows me to examine his mouth/teeth, groom him, and touch his belly and paws. When I come home from work, he is anxiously waiting at the baby gate, barking and jumping around so he can get his hugs and kisses.
Speaking of hugs, I can now give him big bear hugs along with giving him kisses all over his face. And when the sweet boy is watching me put my uniform on for work, he gives me the saddest eyes, making me feel so guilty leaving. He now loves to play fetch and is right now learning to catch a Frisbee.
I could not be any prouder of how Sawyer is learning to trust people and loving his new life as a member of the family. Unfortunately, Sawyer will not be at Goldzilla, though. I feel there will be too many people with all of their hands reaching out to pet this beautiful boy. Sawyer needs time to settle in and trust his family. He has come so far that I do not want to set him back on his achievements.
