Memphis Monday

We met Joy in Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon to pick up Memphis.  I was so pleased he remembered us and came right up to the boys and greeted them.  He made the trip back to Columbus easily and we didn't hear a peep out of him the entire trip.  He made his way around the house and checked out every nook and cranny.  That night he slept on the doggie bed next to Kemper's bed.

The next morning he met several of the neighbors and their pets.  Memphis got along really well with the boxer next door and they ran circles around the yard until they collapsed, exhausted.  I'm so glad he found a friend with whom to romp.

In the afternoon, we took Memphis to our local dog park.  He had such a great time romping will newly found friends.  A couple of the dogs (and some people) were a little intimidated by him.  There were several dog scuffles (there always HAS to be a bully on the play ground, right?) and Memphis stayed clear of them and didn't get involved.  I was so proud of him! 

I think what impresses me the most about Memphis is how quiet he is for such a big dog.  It's almost as if he tip toes around the house.  He doesn't bark or charge the door when the bell rings.  I just love that!!!

Here is our handsome fellow.  Just look at the size of those paws!

Here is Joy with Memphis.
