One of his favorite places is in front of the fireplace

He is due to retire anytime now.

He is an amazing little helper for me and I cannot imagine being without him to help me each and every day. (Well, I would burn more hard boiled eggs)

All the expenses of fostering him for the first year and training is paid by the Lions Foundation. They even paid for my train ride to Oakville, Ontario and put me up and fed me for 2 weeks while I was at the school training with him.

The Lions Foundation school (Dogguides.com) in Oakville is top notch. Stop by for a visit if you ever have the chance. They have open houses once in a while, check out their events calendar on their website.
