Hobbes & Sisters12/1/08 Just a note to officially announce that Dusty is an awesome puppy.  He sits, shakes hands, lies down and loves to play fetch.  Of course he has to compete with the other dogs, but has such a gentle nature that even grouchy DaVinci plays with him.  With sad eyes and a great temperament, he has even won Mury over.  He is so soft and lovey and he makes a wonderful blanket!  I am so glad that we have him.  He has quickly become a special member of our family.  Thanks again, Dora

Calvin&Hobbes by Bill Watterson With classic good looks, Dusty greatly resembles his father Sam.  He's a joy to train as he learns quickly and eagerly.  Though he'll surely grow into a surplus of strength, he's a lover, not a fighter.  Dusty will be living nearby, just outside his home town, along the banks of the Yellowstone River.  We look forward to checking in on him and updating you with any photos, stats and milestones.
