I have always loved all dogs, pretty much any animal that I see. I don't know why, if it is his size or personality, I have never loved another dog the same way I love Clifford, he just melts my heart, even when he is a bad, bad dog
The thing that surprised me the most is his personality. I know what laid back dogs they are as adults, I didn't expect it from a 10 wk old puppy as soon as I got him. Our Jack Russel growls at him and he just takes the toy out of her mouth and wants to play. Nothing really upsets him, it's all good.
Like somebody else said I knew they loved water, didn't realize they couldn't resist it and had to walk through every puddle they see. Today it's pouring down rain really hard and he doesn't want to come in from outside. Oh well, he needed a bath anyway.
