Bob and Katie, just wanted to let you know what a joy your lil blue boy (KJ) is. He is bonding quite well within my family. The grandkids just love him My 4yo grandson says he is a bear not a dog. He is laying at my feet as I type this snoring away (LOL) I guess he has bonded with me the most. He is pretty much potty trained. I commend you on raising such a beautiful companion. Hope to contact you in the future about a female. I had my doubts about buying sight unseen and you have quelled all doubts and fears. Thank you much!
