He is adjusting to the country life very well and finds the goats and chickens a fascinating sight. He is also warming the hearts of the extended family and friends that are stopping by to meet him. Most visitors are amazed at how sweet and laid back he is. His favorite thing to do at this time is to snuggle on the couch and he won't pass up a good belly rub. We are blessed to have him as an addition to our family. Thanks again.
