Apollo is now named Goof

I paid the fees to adopt him and he is only 9 months old so I can name him anything I want.  Whenever I look at him, I cannot help but call him “goof”.  He is just stupid wrinkly, stupid happy, and just stupid, but if you get to know him, he is anything but stupid.   This is the most goofy creature I have seen but has the intelligence to actually be an incredible companion.

Goof has short hair, a wrinkly forehead that expresses emotion as well as Kira.  He won’t shed a lot, and his nose is the color of his fur so I think he will be consistent in his fur as he ages.  He has the most incredible yellow eyes like a bull terrier.  He snuggles up in the bed and turns into a little ball of warmth. In the morning, he lays in the bed without moving until you look at him and then he licks you.  He is completely beholden to humans.

But all is not good.  He leaks when excited, he poops in the house if he cannot get out the dog door, and he makes the most awful sound if you have him locked in a cage.  It isn’t even a cry.  It is something between whimpering and yodeling that is absolutely painful to hear.  It makes you cry just hearing the sound he makes when he is unhappy.

It will take a lot of work, a lot of patience, and a lot of doggie crackers.  But I think this little beast can become a very good companion.
