needless to say, we are pretty attached to alfie even after just one week. alfie loves to snuggle with me, but he especially loves to do "guy" things with nick like playing fetch and riding in the car! we are still planning on taking him to obedience training, but where we want to go doesn't start for another 4 weeks. so, we'll be on our own until then. alfie is very protective of us - to the point where is it difficult to go on walks around the neighborhood because he thinks anything that moves (bird, chihuahua, bicyclist) is going to try to attack us. if we stay inside our house or our yard though, he is just a sweetheart! what can i say... sometimes boys are just stubborn, but we'll get there.
