    He is only temporary if you count having to pry him out of my cold, dead hands. ;) So yes, he is a forever dog.


    ZOMG! He is SO much fun to work with. He offers behaviors like crazy and is working really well with the clicker and just with praise/food/toy rewards when I don't have the clicker ready. He really enjoys working for me and is enthusiastic. It's a whole nother world than what I am used to with previous dogs. Saga will work for me, but she is very flat about it and Django was king of the blowoffs.

    I am feeling the same way. They're seriously moving up on my list of to-own breeds.

    Congrats! PLEASE post LOTS AND LOTS of pictures of him. Please.

    CONGRATS!! He's so cute!! I'm glad Murray went to his forever home too - he reminded me SO much of the Mu that I'm quite glad you're not anywhere near me. :p

    I'd say Nico has done a good job training you and winning over your love; what a sweetie!

    Congrats! (again). Riley does that creepy stare into your soul thing too. I'm pretty sure he can read my mind. It used to freak me out but you'll get used to it.

    Congrats! How exciting! He is adorable. I love how many Mals (and Belgians overall) we have on Chaz. I can live vicariously through all of you since I cannot have one myself (yet).

    :rofl1: I was Mal proofing my place earlier and everything that could POSSIBLY be edible is now out of MY reach, so maybe, just maybe, my cookies are safe.


    And yes, Chazzers, you can all live vicariously through me.

    We just did a walk and re-intro on neutral ground and all was fine, I am sure the transition period will give me a few hair pulling moments :yikes:, but I think it is going to work out fine once everybody settles into their new routines.


    Between Dobes, Belgians and BCs, I think the forum is taken over. :rofl1:

    When you figure out how to Malinois-Proof, let me know. It's never worked out well for me.
