Teddy's Forever Home Update

Forever Home

April 14, 2021
Hi Jan,
Had a great night last night. He slept between the wife and I and has had only 1 accident in the house. Learning really fast to come on command and get down when looking on the table. Doing much better with the leash and getting better with steps. Scared of auto doors at Petsmart and cars spook him. Still getting used to the TV which he watched last night for a while trying to figure it out. Very smart and has become one of the family very quickly. Follows the wife and waits at the door when she is outside. All in all very happy to have him with us. Thank you
Scott and Cherie

Hi Jan,
Cash is doing great. The fence is in and we have had no accidents in the house in three days. I have been layed off from my job which is good as it means I am now retired and spending much more time with cash. He's so smart and learns very fast when told to do something. He seems very happy and plays with toys everyday. I will send a picture of the fenced in area soon as the weather clears. We had a thunderstorm the other day and he ran outside to see what the noise was. He is very alert to every sound. But not afraid after he finds the source of the noise. I love him very much and, where I go he goes with. Always by my side and sleeps always curled up where he can be touching me. Thank you again for choosing our home to be his forever home.

It is so hard to believe that Cash (now named Teddy) has only been with us for 5 weeks. He fits in so perfectly with our family! I thought I would just send an update to let you know how he is doing. He continues to have his very sweet personality. He is a very loving dog, generously sharing his kisses with us (sometimes, a little too generously!). He has learned to give hugs by jumping up, putting his paws on our shoulders, and nuzzling our necks. It is so sweet. He has been to the vet for his first wellness visit, where he also got his flea and ticks meds, heartworm shot, and was microchipped. He went to the groomer for a quick trim -- mostly to get him on the same schedule as our other dog Cinderella. Both the vet and the groomer commented on what a wonderful dog he is. He and Cinderella are getting along well. She is kind of a grumpy old dog, but he has won her over. He also loves our daughter's dog also, who is playful and they love to chase one another through the house. The neighbor's dog will run on his side of the fence while Teddy runs on our side and they chase up and down, back and forth. Overall, he is just a happy-go-lucky little guy. My husband was scheduled to retire on May 14th, but ended up being laid off for his final three weeks so Teddy has had an at-home companion almost the entire time we have had him. But when Scott goes to play golf, Teddy is well behaved. He does like knocking over the small trash cans, but we have learned to put them up when we are gone. He has trained us well. He likes to play when we go to bed, but has learned what the word "settle" means, and he calms down and snuggles when we tell him too. He is a smart little guy. We are so very grateful that you chose us to be Teddy's mom and dad. He is just a constant source of joy and laughter in our lives and we feel very blessed to have him with us.

It is hard to believe it has only been six months since Teddy (Cash) came into our lives. What a joy he has been! My husband took him to obedience classes at the local community college. Although he is a very good boy, we wanted to be sure he had good manners all the time. He was the star of the show! Even the trainer commented on how quickly he learned and how well he was doing. Unfortunately, after his second class, Scott fell and broke his leg. Classes had to pause for a while, but he is scheduled to start again in a couple of weeks. He did learn very basic commands (sit, stay, lie down) and he is much easier to walk on a leash. Stay is especially important as he went through a phase where he would try and dart outside whenever the door was opened. During the time Scott was recovering, Teddy was his constant companion and a daily source of love and snuggles. During this time, our other elderly dog passed away. I am so grateful Teddy was there to be a companion to my husband. They really are best buds. Teddy has discovered that he loves the dog park and has made many new friends there. He loves greeting and playing with the other dogs. I think he would stay all day if we let him. He is always very polite and friendly, but he has no idea he is a little guy. He runs to keep up with the other dogs, especially the big ones. We think he is just perfect and we are grateful every day to have him in our lives. Thank you again for the opportunity to bring him into our family.

It has been a while since you heard from us, but we wanted to update you on our little guy. We adopted him in April of 2021 and he has been such a joy in our lives!Teddy is my husband's constant companion. Since Scott retired, Teddy is by his side all the time. I think his retirement routine revolves around Teddy -- he gets up when Teddy wakes up, he takes a walk whenever Teddy wants to go, and of course, they take their afternoon naps together, dozing in the recliner! My husband is kind of a shy guy so when he decided a year ago that he wanted to spend his winters in Florida, I was worried (since I am still working) that he might be really lonely. But Teddy has solved that problem for him. He is so darn cute that whenever they walk, people stop to pet Teddy and chat about how adorable (and well-behaved) he is. Teddy has many little doggie friends and he has at least one play date almost every day. He keeps an eye on the neighborhood from his perch on the couch or from the golf cart -- he likes to be clicked into his safety harness and take rides around the community to check on his friends.The vet says he is doing really well -- no health concerns at all. Behaviorally, he is perfect -- never has an accident in the house, and does not chew or bite. He has good manners and knows quite a few tricks (his favorite is to "sit up pretty"). He rarely barks unless he is playing or when he has been by himself for a bit and we come home. Then he barks because he is too excited to contain himself! People tell us all the time how lucky we are to have such a nice dog and we agree! Thanks for allowing us to bring him into our home and our hearts!
