Best Tricks:
licking the floor in "spirograph" like shapes when he's having his OCD moments, fetching but not giving it up, walking in zig-zags in front of me

Arrival Story:
i was considering moving to l.a. and visiting my brother who already lived there. we went to the 3rd street promenade and passed a pet store on the way. i hadn't been in one in a while, so i decided to take a look and saw the cutest little gizmo of a dog looking back at me. the price was crazy, so i walked away. i couldn't forget how amazing his face was and went back to buy him a day or two later.

I've realized that I have a multitude of species in my little Rolo. At times he looks or reminds me of other animals and the list keeps on growing. I'll add more as they come to mind, but for now Rolo exudes the following:

-mouse (when he sleeps i picture him in a box of matches)
-moray eel...ok, it's getting more abstract, but it's in the eyes, mini teeth and lower lip when he's play biting)

Rolo has had two out of three private training sessions and is doing great! So far he's learned the sit and down commands. Now I'm working on him looking at me when I call his name. Not that after 4 yrs. he doesn't know his name, but you know what I mean...selective hearing and all. Now I've got his little "monkey eyes" full attention..sort of.
