Comet has 4 good friends who are seniors and live with our daughter, Brook. From them he is learning to "come", walk down the hallway and even has joined me in my office. The picture shows him on a bed in my office, this is a huge change for Comet. Previously he won't do any of that. He seems more relaxed and ready to join us doing errands in the car, previously he avoided the car.
Comet was friendly but not warm toward people, that is also changing he now asks for attention and has become a leaner.
The one change he has yet to make is to accept carrots and other vege's as treats. He'll take the carrot, crew it then spit it out and look to me for a "real" treat. But he's watching the senior dogs and I expect one day he will accept vege's as well.
He is a happy guy and has found a place in our hearts.

Comet has been with us since the beginning of December. He is estimated to be 11 years old. He has spent the past 5 weeks with 2 other dogs and seems a bit lost now that they are gone. When he arrived he did not want to go outside for walks, or get into a car, or do anything other than lay on his bed. He soon discovered that our fenced in backyard suited him and will go in and out of that door without encouragement. We take the dogs for 2 walks a day and he will now go out the door that leads to the garage and will enter the car on his own -- although while the other dogs were here he jumped in with more enthusiasm. While on our walks he holds his head high and appears to be smiling while wagging his tail. He never pushes or bullies the other dogs. Very much a gentlemen. At times he will play bow and attempt to get other dogs to play with him. He avoids the cat. He is friendly to people but not a Velcro type nor will he seek attention of strangers. We are waiting for additional blood work to be completed later this month.

Comet came back to GRRoW after his owner died. He is doing well and coming out of his shell as some of his medical problems are being addressed.
