I am part-time employed and self-employed, which makes for a very unique schedule. My husband is also self-employed and it sure has helped with all our dog care and adjusting. One of my businesses is helping the elderly with administrative tasks (bills, checkbook, calling to resolve issues, etc.). Today my #1 client agreed to let me bring Monte for part of the day, so I could keep an eye on him (he is still suppose to be calm from the "procedure"). Monte was so good. He just followed me from room to room, then layed down and watched me or slept. She was very impressed.
He was so good, that he was allowed to go over to the memory loss home and visit the residents there.
I wondered if he would try to lick the crumbs on this plate, Nope. No interest. Not even when she offered it to him. Such a good boy!
Even after they were told he was hard of hearing, they still kept calling for him to come over for a petting. This gentleman just kept whistling. Too sweet!
A sweet teeny Italian lady was suprised in the hall by Monte. She didnt even bat an eyelash. Just came over and started petting him.
He didnt lick anyone, just gave them a good sniffing then moved on.
He was such a huge hit, both my client and the residents have invited him to return. Even a couple trainee's from the dining room stopped by to say hi to the Gentle Giant.
Can I love this guy anymore than I already do? I don't think so!
Still working on his own blog. Coming soon...

We are still here. Yesterday was our one month anniversary with Monte, and he is doing GREAT! He already has a couple new friends to play with, is visiting around town with us, getting used to the neighborhood and settling in with his kitty sister. This week another dog (Tiger the boxer) joined us while his mom was out of town. Monte welcomed him and became his bud.
I am in the process of creating a new blog for him. Not being the "blog guru," it is a longer process than I thought. Until then, I will keep the updates coming. Monte definitely has his own personality to you show you, and we are eager to introduce him. If life would just slow down a bit...
Until then... don't give up on us.
Boof-- Monte and his new mom
