Subject: Odin H. Buttercup x Nigel Bear II
Hi Lucy and Fredericka, Enclosed are some
pics of Odin from the day we picked him up to recently. Fredericka
referred to him as a little lion and I think she hit the nail on
the head. It is amusing that he does tend to stalk and pounce on
things. He also does a very notable feline arch of the back as he
gets up and stretches! He is a beautiful dog and very very
adorable. He was 15 lbs. when we picked him up and 57 lbs. at 16
weeks. He is averaging a weight gain of 3/4 lbs. a day. We have
made it through the worst of the puppy biting. Lucy's article was
appreciated and a neighbor's Bermese mountain dog (approx. 7mos.
Odin's elder) was instrumental in helping Odin learn appropriate
As many of your families have stated (with
their dogs)...Odin is the hit of the neighborhood. The kids love
him and come running when they see him out or in some cases ring
the doorbell when he is not. We have been a few years without a
dog so we and our "adult" boys are thoroughly enjoying having Odin
as a member of our family!! Please feel free to post any pics that
you like. Thank You!!
Lenore and Bruce H.
