From Poppa's new family:


We fell in love with Poppa the first time we saw him on the website, but we knew there was a very good chance we would not "click" in person.   When we entered the kennel, my eye went strait to him.  Almost all of the other dogs jumped up excited to see us, some barked, some whined, all in all it was quite loud and crazy but there was Poppa laying in his kennel, calm and quiet, just a simple little cock of the eyebrow to let us know he saw us. Almost like he was saying "Oh hey your here, I have been waiting for you guys.  What took you so long?" We asked to see him first, and introduced him to our 3 year old daughter, he gave her a good sniff and quietly stood right beside her.  We took him for a walk outside, and after came back in to the kennel, at that point he leaned in to my husband and was stuck to his leg like glue.  My husband turned to me and said "I think this is our dog."  I agreed, and that was that...love at first sight!  We did not even meet another dog, it was totally meant to be.

Poppa has been part of our family now for 2 days.  He could not be a more perfect gentleman!  He was an angel on the car ride home to Montreal and during the first walk around our yard and the neighborhood, he encountered a few squirrels and many dogs all of which he politely reacted to with his ears up and a calm curiosity...never once even pulling hard on his leash.  He decided he would much rather enjoy the big dog bed to his crate, and did so well the first day (no accidents) that he slept on his bed in our room all night.  He is a pro at our outside stairs and will go up and down the inside stairs with a little help.  We have discovered that he is not a fan of doing his business with you close by so we got him an extendable leash for a bit more privacy until our yard is fenced and that seemed to do the trick.  He is so sweet and gentle with our little girl, she adores him and I am sure they are going to be fast friends.

We are over the moon for this adorable dog, we cannot wait to spend many happy years with him.  Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to love and be loved by him.  (And a big thank you to Donna and Klaus for everything, especially for answering all 5 million of my questions and I am sure there will be more.)

Mandi, Ken, PJ and Poppa
