   Leave a bone for Spot

Spotters, Special Ed (when he wears his harness), Sweetheart, Puppers

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog

Chasing anything that moves-most especially squirrels, cats and birds. Running and jumping -over rocks, fallen trees, sometimes for no reason at all ;-) Barking and growling and whining, and otherwise telling people what to do. Snuggling under the covers.

When no one is paying attention to him, or paying more attention to another dog (the very idea!) when the toys get stuck under the coffee table.Getting a bath and having his nails clipped. He runs around like a crazy person after his bath.

Favorite Toy:
stuffed squirrel, of course! Actually, anything stuffed that he can rip the stuffing out of.

Favorite Food:
big bones

Favorite Walk:
Middlesex Fells, near the Sheepfold and Willards Woods in Lexington

Best Tricks:
Hmm, he can roll over, shake, beg, back up, scratch, fetch and carry, and of course sit and lay down. Oh and play dead!

Arrival Story:
He was given up to a shelter because they didn't have time for him. I saw him on and visited the shelter. He was very high-strung and the shelter staff almost convinced me not to adopt him! They basically said he would destroy my house if left unoccupied. So I left without him. He was still there 2 weeks later, so I convinced my roommate to let me introduce Spot to her Irish Wolfhound, and then it was a done deal! Now Spot and I have our own place, and I think he prefers it that way. Now he gets all the attention.

I can't stress enough how good it is to do obedience training with your dog, clicker training especially. It's a very easy way to communicate with your dog. Spot was crazy when I got him, but after several classes, including tricks and agility, we have a much better relationship and he is a calmer dog because he knows exactly what is required from him. He still misbehaves occasionally, but in general he is a different dog than the one I saw at the shelter, who barked frantically the whole time I was there.
