May 19, 2024

Soto is doing great now but he had a few rough days. He had a visit to the vet and while he did great once he was there, he was not a fan of the car ride! He had to get a few vaccines and was very sleepy the next day.  Soto also weighed in at a whopping 26 pounds!  They think he is going to be a big boy, and so do I!  Everyone who works at the vet office fell in love with him immediately!Black Labrador RetrieverHe is finally starting to engage in play with his foster brother!  He loves playing chase and tug with the rope.

Soto loves everyone he meets but is especially smitten with his Foster Mom, and more recently his Foster Brothers (ages 13 & 11).  He loves snuggling and playing with the FB’s!Black Labrador RetrieverHe is making progress with potty training, and we are so proud of him!  We still have him on a schedule to go outside but he continues to scratch at the back door when he needs to go out between the scheduled times!Black Labrador RetrieverSoto is the sweetest, softest little snuggle bug!
