Wilson is doing very well – I can hardly believe that he’s been with us for 3 years, already! He and Sophie are best buds as always. Wilson moved from Maine to California with me, Sophie, and Max so we have all had quite the year! He and the others are adjusting well to CA. I think they like the weatherJ We drove out last April and all three did AMAZINGLY well on the 6 day trek across the county.
Wilson loves playing puppy games with his big sis, Sophie. He had a BLAST his first time to the ocean (Huntington Beach). He also loves the dog park and his daily hikes. I bought a bicycle this spring and discovered that Wilson is a PRO. He loves going fast, fast, fast as he can running beside it! He was immediately a natural!
As far as “issues” - Wilson does get very excited when meeting new people and LOVES kids (sometimes a little too much). He must be reminded to keep calm and once he understands how he needs to behave, he gets along fabulously with everyone. If the excitement level is allowed to escalate, it can be scary for some people because he is a big boy and he is jumping on them. Now, it’s important to note that he isn’t aggressive, but some people misconstrue it to be aggression. I keep a close eye on him and make sure that anyone I have care for him completely understands that he cannot be allowed to get to that level and how it must be addressed if he does.
Wilson is the sweetest little boy – I am SO incredibly happy that he came into our lives. Although challenging times, I couldn’t imagine my life without Wilson in it. He is a GREAT DOG!!! Some photos and a video of Wilson at the Ocean are attached.
