Sorry for the delay in the email --work and the puppy, whose name is now Laith, have been keeping me busy lately. I'm attaching some photos from our camping trip in southern Germany this weekend -- Laith absolutely loved it -- he has a thing for sleeping in a tent and playing with sticks and leaves! He's becoming a very well-traveled pup, and very social. He's almost doubled in size since I got him, but people STILL stop when we go out to play with him. He loves the attention and is quite social -- we join the park playgroup every day and he's starting puppy kindergarten tomorrow morning.
On a separate note, I've recommended EuroPuppy to several people, and I have a friend, Matt, who has inquired about a black lab puppy available around the December time. He looked further around the site and also wanted me to ask for him about a Belgian Malinois around that same time. Do you know of anything? I'll keep you posted on puppy kindergarten!
