When Sebastian showed up on July 4th, Dr B determined that he was about 18 months old, so he counted backwards and declared January 4th, his new official birthday. So today we're celebrating Sebastian's second birthday.
This is a very nice dog. He's gentle and will allow us to do anything with him from bathing to giving pills. He has a really even temperament.
It would be interesting to know his history because he's been well cared for. He knows several commands and can catch and shake hands. He's great with strangers, though he seems to prefer men. He's been taught not to run thru an open door, but waits for us to go first, walks nicely on leash and waits for us going down steps.
Though he likes to lounge on the furniture, he wouldn't go into the kitchen when he first came to us. Now he will come part way into the kitchen, but then backs out again. He's wearing a jacket and cone again because he won't leave his incision alone. As soon as it heals again, I'll put something bad tasting on it to discourage his attention.
This morning he had marmalade on his toast and tonight he'll get sardines for dinner. Happy birthday, Sebastian.
