Topolino Dog is Settled!

My parents’ dog, Topolino, has lived with us for a few months now, and he has really started to come out of his shell.

He loves that he can sleep on the bed with the other dogs, and if he gets half a chance he’ll snuggle with whomever else is on the bed.

He’s very clever, quickly learning the routines and “rules” of our home. He’s even started bringing toys back when he fetches something, which he never used to do before. He and our Guide Dog puppy Nimble play so well together, alternating between the Labrador wrestle that she loves and the “keep away” running game that he loves. He doesn’t always like to eat his breakfast with the other dogs, and for a while he was waking up very nauseous so I increased his supper so that he could have his breakfast a little later without feeling like he was starving.

He also gets colder than our other dogs – not having a thick double coat like our other dogs. He has a doggy jersey that he wears, but he also likes being covered with a blanket!
