And here he is ... Bamboo

Bamboo was adopted in July of last year and my wife and I are pleased to say that all of the concerns about his behavior have not materialized.  He was on Reconcile (Separation Anxiety Syndrome) when he arrived and within a few months he was weaned of the medication and we are pleased to report that we have experienced no destructive behavior when we leave him alone.  I am sure that his new "big sister" Mollie has a calming affect which helps. He loves car rides, is sociable with neighbors and other dogs on the street and in the woods.  We walk every day for an hour or so, sometimes much longer in the summer time.  Last summer I noticed that he is adverse to water i.e. the sprinkler and water holes and streams on the trail.  Where Mollie will climb right into the stream and lie down, he will take a drink but makes sure his paws do not touch the water.  The first time we went for a walk in the rain, Mollie and I were down the street and Bamboo was no where to be found.  Checking on his whereabouts, I found him under a tree in the yard  with his head down shrinking from the rain.  He now has no concern about the rain and his favorite time is the towel rub down after the walk, although he still will not go into the stream to cool off.   However, he is not the perfect dog.  He in fact is a bit of a chow hound and gets very excited and whines when he thinks it is his supper time and there is no one in the kitchen preparing his dinner.  We have banned him from the kitchen at this time, much to his dismay.  At the end of the day, he reminds me that it is bed time and he is happy for me to lead him upstairs where he hops onto the bed and settles in the for night.  While he does not where his heart on his sleeve, there are times when he wants a little TLC and he snuggles up to me (or runs up to me in his happy dance way on the trail wanting me to catch him or play tug of war with the leash) that shows us that he knows he is home and that he is loved.
