Yep--his first time out in the backyard he checked out all of the gates (LOL). We've been doing some pruning out back right beyond the fence and he stayed right there with us on the other side of the fence when everyone else went back inside.
Just dropped by to see if there was a Joey update (or else I was gonna email ya). Tell Jim to go back and look at the pictures of Bear in comparison to Joey and then tell me again that Joey is a mix. HEHE. Joey looks so very much like my Hali and she is 100% golden from show quality stock.
