Update on Echo

About three and half months ago Echo came to live with us. I can't thank Nichole enough for thinking of us when she needed to find him a new home. He has settled in and now thinks of our house as home. He has in the last couple of weeks become very playful with me and tries to get the cats to play with him. They just look at him with horror and run and hide. (After a few choice words)

 The picture on the left is Echo in the quilt room. He likes to spend time there while I sew and wants to check everything I am doing in case it is edible. Then he lays on the rug and naps until we are ready to leave.

The next picture is Echo in the backyard up on one of the tables. He likes to get up there and take his afternoon nap. From there he can see the back door, the drive, the canal, and the bottom field.

The bottom picture is Echo working on his rawhide bone. In the evenings he comes in and has a rawhide treat and when he is finished with that he curls up and sleeps until bedtime.  He has become my companion and is such a joy to have around. When DH travels it is really nice to have him for company. Unlike the cats he lets me know if someone is around before I am surprised.
We took him to the vet and he is healthy and has had his teeth cleaned. We walk everyday usually a half a mile and some days we do a mile. He really likes the walks and has met several of the neighbors. He really likes the kids down the street, but doesn't always see them when we walk by. So that is where we are at the moment. Now I can't imagine life without him around. If you want to know anything else let me know.
