Update from gorgeous Romeo (Arctic Romeo)

It is exhausting being so good looking!
Handsome Romeo (Arctic Romeo) now lives in Lower Hutt with his new family. We just got an update and some gorgeous pictures from his  Mum , who wrote:

Romeo is a beautiful dog who is just happy to be here and embraces life, and happy kids who have a dog that adores them as much as they adore him :) He is an absolute darling, very funny, and sweet – he settled in very quickly, which is awesome and is snoozing next to me at the moment.

I take him for a walk every morning and he holds his head just a little higher when people stop and fuss over him... oh, hell, they don't even have to stop, they just have to pause on the other side of the street... he knows they're looking at him. :)

Today I discovered that he likes to chase tennis balls, and kinda fetches: he brings the ball back and drops if where ever he feels like it. He'll do it twice, and then go lie down on his bed. Quite frankly I can't blame him... fetch is a mindless game for lesser dogs. :)

He runs like a lunatic around the garden in a big figure eight -three times, then, you guessed it... he needs another nap. :)
Romeo in mid crazy. Looks a bit mad, definitely in a weird position...
 he was making a tight turn at speed!
When he's not asleep, he prefers to be hugged and stroked and generally made a fuss of by all of us. He's been cheeky from the beginning. Being such a quiet dog, he sneaks up on doorways and pokes his head around to see what's going on... pretty funny to see him do it.

He is very obedient. Very easy to walk (he'd sooner be asleep.) He leaps in the living room when I throw his stuffed giraffe to him, leaps and smacks it with his paws, then bounds about with it and eventually retires to cuddle Gerry the giraffe on his bed.:)
So, happy family all round.

Even Missy the snooty cat is okay with Romeo.
 It'd be hard not to be, he is very respectful of her :)
 She does stalk him sometimes tho -as in the picture above!
