Lyle is wonderful! He adjusted really well and we just love him so much! He entertains us and keeps us very active since he loves walks and playing fetch, we average 3 miles a day (1.5 in the morning and 1.5 in the evening). The only time we get a break from walking is when it’s raining, Lyle hates getting wet and avoids puddles! On a couple occasions he had no choice but to walk through a puddle and it was hilarious, I have never seen a dog tip-toe and lift is legs so high to avoid getting wet! It didn’t take Lyle long to find his perfect spot in the house, it’s a chair that’s in the living room near windows overlooking the front yard. Lyle sits on that chair and keeps an eye on the neighborhood and barks at everyone that walks by…and if a dog walks by he not only barks but also bites and shakes the pillow that’s on that chair (see attached video). We can always tell if a lot of dogs walked by during the day by the amount of feathers that are on the chair! Lyle also has a new favorite toy that was a welcome home gift that we call his girlfriend because we always find him cuddling with this toy on the couch, and he even runs to get it when we say “go get your girlfriend”. He makes us laugh so much with all the silly things that he does and we can’t imagine our lives without him. We take him everywhere with us!
