Default Our boy Gimli

I posted on here a few weeks ago for the first time. We've now had Gimli for two months. Absolutely adore him. He's just brilliant. Can't remember him not being around. He's four months old now. He's picked up a few tricks. Sit, paw, high five, sit pretty, down, turn and everyone's favourite - morto (short for mortified, like shame). He's getting there with the toilet training, has even made it through a few nights. His recall is also improving, we use "here Gimli". He is now great at walks, after a slow start. He loves them. The only thing is he sometimes bites the leash. There aren't a lot of shelties here in Ireland so he gets a lot of attention.

Check out his blog to see a few pics.

Gimli is just too cute - and sounds very smart!

How pretty! I love the real softness of his expression and the light foxy coloration. I can't wait until Cubby hits 4 months and we make our first visit to the ocean (which IS planned!).

Teddy is my mother in laws dog. She very kindly minds Gimli while we are at work so they are together most days. It's so sweet how they are always so happy to see each other.
