Goldendoodle puppy in Chicago, Illinois
Hi Michael & Family,
I just want you to know that TJ is doing really well! He is a little over 4 months, and weighs about 25 lbs. He is growing right before our eyes, and everyone thinks THEY are his favorite because he gives so much affection. He is pretty well crate trained and is eating twice a day. He had the nicest temperament, always friendly and playful if someone is available, but otherwise quiet and calm when it is appropriate. He seems to be capable of transitioning from playful to calm very easily. And he just met the Weirenga’s dog Mattie a couple of weeks ago and Mattie tried to make TJ know that she was in charge but after awhile the tables turned and TJ was running the show, and ultimately they played together so nicely. They were acting just like each other, batting each other with their big paws, and laying on their backs with total trust for the other dog, chasing each other. It was awesome! TJ also likes to play with a friends border collie and won over a friend’s giant schnauzer who at first definitely wanted to be in charge, growling and bared teeth and all, but all of the sudden, gave in and let TJ jump and play with him. Can you tell we’re happy with him? Also, are there any of your dogs and/or TJ’s siblings that might’ve come to live anywhere reasonably near us?
