Happy Holidays! Just thought I would write to give you an update on our Dieter. Thank you again for doing what you do, and raising such amazing dogs! Dieter is loved by all who meet him, and he has met several people on his adventures this year. Tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of us picking Dieter up from the airport. I can’t believe it has only been a year, it seems like Dieter has been a part of our family forever. He has had a happy and healthy year, and just weighed in at 22 lbs. I think he is pretty perfect in every way This year Dieter went to the snow, camping, swimming in several lakes, hiking, and was the star of our daughter’s animal themed 6th birthday. We learned he is a “glamper”, he does not enjoy sitting on dirt and much prefers a camp chair. In fact, he likes to be comfortable when he sits and will often sit on our other dog’s or cat’s tails (see pics below).
He loves playing with his Aussie brother Natty, his kitty sisters, and his guinea pig brothers. Dieter loves eating plants, trees, and sticks. He also likes watching TV (he really watches!). Dieter loves anyone who comes to the door, and has absolutely zero watchdog abilities, which we love about him (our Aussie has that department handled). In fact, we recently moved and our new neighbors didn’t know we had dogs because he is so quiet. However, he will viciously attack the vacuum if given the opportunity! Dieter enjoys visiting with our 92 year old neighbor across the street, and she loves cuddling up with him. I love this little dog so much!
Our hearts are full with this little guy, however, we are considering getting him a friend that is more his speed. Our Aussie is slowing down, and we recently puppy sat for our friend, which Dieter loved (our Aussie did too because he got left alone when he didn’t feel like playing anymore!) How long is your wait list these days?
Thank you again for everything!!
