We just spent a week in North Carolina with family, and we took Norman. He could not have been more wonderful.

He was a considerate guest in my sister's house. Never used the bathroom inside, no inappropriate barking (though he did let us know when someone was at the front door), got along beautifully with her kitten and kept a respectful distance from the big kitties who told him that they wanted no part of his playing.

He layed down quietly while we ate out at a place with outside tables.

He rode on a boat, king-of-the-world style. Swam in the lake, swam in a pool, played with little boys, and followed his daddy everywhere he went. On the trip there and back, he slept. Pottied at rest stops when we did.

I can honestly say that taking him with us caused absolutely ZERO inconvenience or extra trouble. It was like bringing an extremely well-behaved child that doesn't require clothes or cooked food.

You really need to, I think he expresses both Jimmy and your's exuberance, love of life etc. and the kids  with their natural   Kidness.  He has to stay part of  your family and he really belongs, he has regal bearing and a great sense of adventure and fun.

How lucky he and you all are! frolic frolic
