Opus - Maggie/Silas 2014
Dear Stephanie and Rhonda,
I wanted to share some pictures with you taken this last weekend by a dear friend of ours. They really capture the essence of Opus' personality. He is such a fun-loving boy. It's a miracle we were able to get a few pictures of him actually posing. He was so excited to be part of the action he could hardly sit still.
It's hard to believe he's already a year and a half. The time has flown by. We were so reluctant to get another dog after the passing of our last Golden, but now I can't imagine life without Opus. He epitomizes the stereotype of Goldens: he loves his family unconditionally and honestly thinks he is human (or we are dogs). The other day I caught him looking at himself in the full length mirror. Rather than barking or getting skittish, he actually stood and posed while taking it all in. I guess he's a bit full of himself sometimes :-)
He has started "talking" more lately. If I put on a certain pair of shoes that are usually associated with taking a walk, he immediately tells me about it by whimpering. And if he wants to play and isn't getting anyone on board, he barks until we give in. I think we spoil him just a bit!!
Anneke recently had a birthday and he was more excited about opening her presents than she was. I can't wait to see what Christmas has in store!
