|Taken by Gumbo's nanny over Christmas|
Gumbo is doing great! He is a sweet, affectionate and happy dog. He has a great disposition and makes us smile and laugh every day. He is bursting with energy....Sometimes perhaps a bit too much energy, ha ha!
We have tons of toys for him, and his latest favorite tool of amusement is his new Kong toy. We put peanut butter down in it, and he has a ball trying to lick it out. He has many stuffed animals and he's managed to remove the stuffing from most of them. We just go buy more toys for him then.

He also has had all his puppy series of shots including Bordetella, Rabies and Distemper. He eats Blue Buffalo dog food usually twice a day and drinks LOTS of water. Funny enough as well, Gumbo loves vegetables. He adores broccoli, asparagus, spinach, squash, green beans, carrots: he will even eat lettuce! I should point out though, that we only give him vegetables in small quantities. He sure relishes them!
Thanksgiving, Gumbo went on a road trip to Knoxville, Tennessee. He was a great, "car dog" and seemed to really enjoy it when the windows were opened a little and wind was blowing through the car, making his ears flop around; its a funny sight to see
|Gumbo with Freyja|
Over Christmas, he stayed with a doggy nanny, for some of the time. He had a friend there to play with him. Her name is Freyja. She is also a poodle mix, though I am not suer about the other half of her hybrid.

We want to get Gumbo in a Puppy Class, so we are going to look into that early this year. Gumbo knows how to sit and shake hands. I think he knows some other recognizable words as well. For example, if you ask him if he would like some CHICKEN, he perks right up!
We love reading the blog, and always look forward to your updates. Hopefully your readers will enjoy our update on Gumbo!
