Linda and Steve,
I wanted to send you a 1 month e-mail update since we got Rigby from you in July. He is just the most precious thing, we could not be happier with him! We were amazed as soon as we brought him home because he slept through the entire night, every night, without any whining right from the start! He learned how to sit within his first week with us, and he has already learned to ring the bell by our door when he needs to go outside to potty.
Rigby just loves being around people and other dogs. He is always the center of attention when we have company, and he makes sure to go up to each person and lay down on his back so that everyone gets a chance to love on him! We have not had many issues with chewing because he is a very good listener and he loves his toys. Everyone has been impressed with how well behaved he is for a puppy. He also LOVES going on car rides! He is almost all finished with his booster shots and we are excited to start puppy obedience classes in a couple of weeks. I will be sure to write again soon and update you on how he is doing in class.
I have attached some pictures of him since we brought him home. When we got him he was about 4 lbs and now he is just over 9 lbs at 3 months old. At first he was showing much more golden retriever traits than the others. As he grows, his coat has started to get a bit curlier and he is looking more and more like a doodle and less like a golden. We think he is the perfect mixture! Thank you so much for such a wonderful puppy! We do not know how we lived without him before! ~ Melissa F.
