Beau is my newest Foster pup :) his name was originally Bo, but after spending more time with him I felt he needed a slightly softer name :) 

He became attached at my hip pretty quickly. And he likes to be where I am. Even when other people he knows are around, I'm the clear favorite. At the dog run it was mentioned that he was definitely a "Julia-dog", and it turned out to be quite true! He quickly learned he could look to me and trust me and has been glued to my side. 
But despite that, and the fact that I was warned he has some separation anxiety, he hasn't shown any seperation anxiety besides waiting by doors for me, or sitting and staring where he saw me last. But even doing that he settles quite quickly. 

We went to Bosley's in North Van (Lonsdale) and they generously donated a bath to Beau! So we gave him a nice bath, and he was very well behaved! He let me wash him all over and even rinse around his eyes and mouth He did not like the blow drier though!  

He is definitely funny though :)
So far he is showing he loves to cuddle, and is very smart! We are working on leash skills, and his alert barking reaction to some new things, both have been improving already! 

He is getting along well with my TG Alumni cat Pekoe, and Rikki. 
He is so far not showing much playfulness with dogs, and yelped at Rikki when she tried to initiate play with him. And though he seems interested when I initiate play with a toy he will go for the toy a few seconds, but is not really playing much with it. I'm hoping he will soon learn how much fun toys can be! 

I was also expecting him to be 20-25lbs but he's actually much smaller! I haven't qeighed him yet but I'm putting him around only 10-15lbs.

I look forward to getting to know this little guy!
