Love this boy so much! I still can't believe how quickly he is growing up... he has matured into the perfect dog. Every morning he brings me his leash, my socks and shoes lol and is ready to go for a run. He is the best running buddy, always right by my side and super solid no matter what happens.. we've had so many crazy loose dogs running at us, little kids reaching out to pet him, bikes passing way too close, etc. and he never skips a beat. He has been such a blessing at home, he still doesn't bark which I don't mind.. but if someone we don't know comes to the door he will let out a low growl. He has the perfect amount of protection for me, wary of strangers but still super friendly if I let him know it's ok! He settles so nicely in the house and loves to just lounge around and cuddle on the couch. His favorite thing is giving kisses lol, we usually have to cut him off or he'll just kiss you all day. My little nephew loves him so much, Gandalf watches him intently while my nephew gives him commands. It's been so much fun watching them grow up together. Gandalf still loves his kitty Autumn more than anything, but she is a spoiled little brat and usually takes advantage and steals his things.
I couldn't imagine life without him.

I love all your stories about Gandalf! He’s an amazing dog, you really lucked out there. Actually, seems you both did - from following your posts, I’d say you’re perfect for each other.

It's also very kind of him to share his bed with your kitty...
since that bed looks a bit on the large side for a cat!

He sure is a handsome dog! I really like that second photo where he's playing with your nephew! And that first one, WOW, who knew that swans in Florida got so big
