Hi, Lucy & Fredericka~

I wanted to send you a couple of pictures from last night of Hercules. He is doing great at obedience training!!! The trainer was talking to me last week and wanted me to tell you that she is in LOVE with him! She said she tries not to show favorites, but she is having a hard time not showing how much she loves him. He is so hard not to love. All the other people love him, too and he has done great with the other dogs–even the 4 lb dog! We are loving the fact that we can take him outside with us and not have to worry with him running out of the yard or chasing any cats. Last week when he was out playing with us, he stayed right with the boys–to make sure they were safe! We did have him neutered on Feb. 16th, so I will get that paperwork sent to you. Also, I took him to get him weighed before obedience class last week and he was 131 lbs–I had them print out his records (to show the trainer that he was up-to-date on his shots) and it was hard to believe the he was only 24.8 lbs when we got him last October! Enjoy the pictures of our big baby (in the 1st and 2nd picture, Andrew was laying on him, and the 3rd picture is Bradley laughing because Hercules was about to lick his face)!

Hi, Lucy and Fredericka~

Just wanted to give you an update on Hercules. He is growing up–94 lbs. last week. We have moved, so he now has a fenced in back yard, where he can play with our lab. They have done really well together, but Hercules is definitely the Alpha male! He has taken over one of our pillows from our bed, as his own, even though he has his own bed. He also likes to sleep on our oldest son’s bed– We have had to put a baby gate up to keep him out of there at night, because Hercules likes to sleep ON Bradley and not by him!!!

I am forwarding a couple of pictures of the big baby…enjoy!
