Ruff Ruff !

Wishing all of you a very happy holidays.  I am traveling with my family to Nevada for Christmas.
I really have lots of fun playing in the snow.

Hello Carolyn,  Here are a couple of photos I took today of Timber.
We always joke that he would be a good mop for our hardwood floors.
Have a great day!!  ~Megan

Thought you might like some photos of Timber.  We love him so much.  We take him with us everywhere.  He even survived a day of shopping in Bozeman; of course we took him into PetSmart.  A lady was hanging out of her car window wanting to know what kind of dog we have.  We have been working on our commands and taking daily walks.  House training was fast; after the first 10 days we have had no accidents.  Timber really wants our cat to play with him.  Of course the cat just sits and stares at him, wondering "what's this curly-haired thing and why is he bugging me?" Thanks again for a wonderful puppy!!  ~Megan

We have had a wonderful time with Timber today!  We were so proud of him when he whined at the front door to go outside to potty.  You did an outstanding job.  Wish us luck for tonight.  ~Megan
