Wally continues to be a great dog with a big personality! He loves his hikes, walks and runs, and absolutely loves swimming in the lake near our house. Wally is very obsessed with toys and balls...we've learned that you have to put them away and only bring out his toys when you are ready to play, play, play! He will go lay down with his toys if you ask, but he is so anxious about not playing, he will rip them apart. When playtime is over and his toys are put away in his toy chest, he is such a love bug. His new favorite way to get love: bound up in bed with you in the morning and do body slams against your back until you are awake and petting him. He gives you a big sloppy kiss and flips over for belly rubs. It's quite hilarious...if you like a big fuzzy slobbery alarm clock. We try to lay still and play possum so he doesn't see we are awake and stays in his bed on the floor, but you can only do that for so long. Ha! Wally will do so well in an active home who loves his antics as much as we do! He continues to be great in the car, great in the house, and great with people and kids. He is great with my male Aussie, plays and wrestles appropriately, shares toys, but we have to watch and monitor him closely with my female Aussie mix. She is grumbly around him, and they definitely have a love-hate relationship. Again, dog parks may not be the best thing with him since he takes offense to alpha personalities.
