Hi all, I wanted to let you all know that Finny is doing great! My 1-year old nephew, Jack, LOVES him and follows him everywhere when we visit (which is most weekends). Finnegan's energy level has gone through the roof (comparatively, he's still a mellow dog) and he is very fit (thanks to my sister taking him running and long hikes with me in the woods). Finn acts much more like the 2-year old he is - spinning and jumping and playing all the time now. He's obsessed with playing ball. It's… Continue

Finn had a great weekend. We spent all day yesterday at my friends' house with their 9-month old viszla, Wrigley. They have a HUGE fenced-in backyard and a in-ground pool and Finnegan had a great time exploring the yard, swimming in the pool and playing with Wrigley. The two dogs got along great except when Wrigley would bark and bark in Finn's face to try and get Finn to chase him. I heard Finnegan growl for the first time - he really didn't like the barking. Not that I can blame him, I found… Continue

Finny had a great weekend. He is such a wonderful dog!!! He is PERFECT in every way. Saturday was a mellow day - he really likes to sleep. He had an early morning walk down to the local coffee shop and he loved that. He slept most of the day with occasional visits to the backyard. I think maybe our big Friday night concert & company for dinner might have worn him out so I let him chilll all day.
Sunday we went up to my brother's in Metuchen for my brother's birthday bbq. There… Continue

Finny had a great day. My cousin was visiting and they hung out and Finny was very friendly to him. I had people over for dinner and Finnegan loved every minute of it. At one point, I looked in my front living room and there were three people sitting on the couch around Finn and petting him while he sat in the middle of the couch. He was very cute just sitting there having everyone pet him.
We walked down to Riverside Garden Park for an outdoor concert at 7:30p. Finny really likes… Continue

Finny had a great second day. He's really getting comfortable in his new home. I left him for several hours to do errands, shopping etc. and he was as good as gold. He's fond of my living room couch and when I go out, he climbs up there to sleep. When I'm home, he always sleeps on his dog bed. I think he thinks he's sneaking onto the couch which is funny because I don't mind if he gets on the couch and I try to get him to come up beside me but he just lays his head on my lap and leaves his body… Continue

Lynne brought Finnegan over today as she thought it would be better for her to be here with him when he first saw his new home. It was great seeing him again, and Lynne too of course. I really admire the work she and Jackie are doing especially when you see how happy and special their rescued doodles are....Finnegan looked great! He gained a bit of weight these past couple of weeks and seems so happy.
I felt bad for him and Lynne after she left.… Continue

I met Finnegan yesterday and he was just as wonderful and perfect in person as he is in his pictures. He's calm, gentle and seems older than his 2 years. He has what my grandmother used to call "an old soul." It was great meeting Lynne also, who lives only a couple of miles away from me, and it's clear that Finnegan has really been enjoying the company of Lynne's three dogs and her family. Lynne has a wonderful house - it's like a dog-paradise. Finnegan is going to stay there for a few more… Continue
