July 27, 2015 Update:
DoDo has transitioned well to his new home. He loves the lake and the fields and his new brothers and when not playing is the most mellow fellow in the bunch. He prefers to be near one of his brothers or a human but does a wonderful job staying in the yard and watching as we do yard work and enjoy the outdoors. He has wonderful manners and loves to visit with the neighborhood preschoolers. Chasing chipmunks has become a new interest and his "form" mimics a fox diving in the snow. We are so happy to have this youngster join our family and can't want for all that he will teach us.

Dodo/Shiloh has been a perfect gentleman the last two weeks. He has learned many new skills from his older brother and has especially enjoyed keeping chipmunks out of the garden and swimming in the lake. He tolerated a bath in the lake but does love being brushed. However, his all time favorite job is sitting on the bench in the pontoon boat as we fish along the shore. Short of a little separation anxiety when he is not with his older brother, he is well behaved for a 1 1/2 year old.

This 1 1/2 year old was certainly glad to get out and run this weekend. He is doing great and has met the neighborhood dogs, cats and young ones. The kids in the neighborhood want to take him home and are so taken with his cream colored coat. The weekend also involved going to the lake and doing a little swimming and duck chasing. He was up to date on his shots so other than being neutered, being treated for a mild ear infection and getting his nails clipped, he is in good health. We do have to work on some of his commands but with all the excitement, it is hard to concentrate on "schooling." He is not very curious about toys and can't quite figure out what to do with them and would rather mimic the actions of our 7 year old golden...up, down, outside, down, up again, inside, etc. He is permitted full run of the house day and night and does not abuse the privilege. While he would like to get up on furniture and puts his head on your lap while you are sitting down, we do not allow dogs on the couch or chairs. Considering his early beginnings he is apprehensive about being left alone in a crate or confined space and will bark until he sees someone in close proximity. It won't be long before this handsome adolescent is ready for adoption.
