Clyde is going home

Today begins week 2 with Clyde. On Easter Sunday we found out that Clyde will be going to his new home on Wednesday April 2nd. I will miss him, but am very excited he will have a home. His new parents are a young engaged couple who seem very excited to have him. Clyde will be their first dog together. They called to arrange when they would pick him up and with questions about him. I am going to write them a letter to give to them along with his purple hippo stuffie and his nice new martingale. I tihn the letter will go something like this:
Dear S & B,
We have been delighted to have Clyde in our home for the past three weeks. He is a very sweet, affectionate, snuggly boy. He doesn't mind the kitties in our house, but has shown a little interest to those running around outside. He crates pretty well. He eats in his crate and goes in super easy when food is involved. When we have to leave, it just depends on how he's feeling. Sometimes, you grab his collar and he walks right in. Other times, you have to get behind him and give him a little boost. He has never had an accident in his crate and only one outside of it. He likes to play with balls in the yard and will almost bring a tennis ball back. He likes to romp around and throw his feet. He likes stuffies and anything else he can take. If you don't watch him and he can reach it, he will take it. He even tried to take a loaf of bread twice in about 10 minutes. :) He walks well on a leash and is not easily distracted. He loves to sleep on the couch and snuggle with us in the bed. He has no sleep or space aggression. I don't think I have heard him growl at all, even with our rowdy crowd. Congrats on adopting this very sweet boy. May you have many years of happiness with him. Please feel free to call or e-mail us anytime if you ever need anything.
Clyde's Foster Parents,
Britt & Tim
