Happy Tail

Ben and I adopted Romeo on 03/29/11 from Carol M and he has just been the most perfect, happy and loving little puppy! We decided to name him Romeo because he is just such a little love bug! He loves meeting new people and tries really hard to kiss everyone he meets. He keeps jumping and licking until he gets a couple kisses in and then calms down. We have another dog and cat; Romeo gets along famously with both of them.
Romeo has been crate trained, but we like to sleep with him on the bed with us and he fights me for my pillow every night. I usually let him win =) We wake up to little puppy kisses in the morning. Ben and I have never really been morning people, but Romeo has really changed that for us.
I work from home 2-3 days out of the week and try to have Romeo sit in his little bed next to my chair, but he likes to jump up and sit in my lap while I'm working. I have given up, he lets out the cutest little sigh and puts his paws up on the chair and I just can't say no. That's where he is right now! He is such a little love, all he wants to do is love and snuggle.
When Ben and I are away from the house for even an hour, we come back and he is just an explosion of kisses and love and jumps all over us for about 10 minutes.
He knows sit and we are trying to train him to stay (away from the dinner table) while we eat as we do not give him any people food. He is so eager to learn and is a quick learner. We could not have asked for a more perfect puppy. He is such an amazing contribution to our little family.
We would love to know more about Romeo's past. Where did he come from? Does he have any siblings?
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for Romeo.

Gizmo AKA Doodle

Hi Carol
Gizmo and the cat are getting along. Had a good week, he's adjusting well. Took him for his checkup with the vet. All is well, she has us using a medicated shampoo on his knee and it is getting much better. We have determined he is a Havanese. Look at a Havanese puppy picture and it's him. Thanks again for what you and your group does for puppies like Gizmo! Mike
