Felix, our adopted dog, became very fast a family member. After two days he was at home. After three days he became my shadow. Meanwhile I should call him my body extension, at least he is behaving like something glued to my leg. Of course he loves all family members and they love him too, but in the end he is my best pal!
Funny thing, he knows I like to photograph during our walks. He already learned to wait until I took all the pictures. But he is failing as a dog model. The problem is, he doesn't like to have more than 50 cm distance between us. Therefore he is travelling in the left backseat right behind my back. He is sitting in his basket - I call it his mobile home - like the King of the world.
The only person he honored with a jump on the lap is my father. I have to help my father from his wheelchair into the front seat of the car. Last time Felix waited until I stepped back, right away he jumped on my father's lap. I never saw two men more happy, until I had to secure Felix with his seat belt in the backseat ... Btw Felix is an excellent and disciplined companion, when I have to push the wheelchair.
I'm sure I made a very healthy decision, although my feet and knees are telling another story. At least my scales doesn't beg me for mercy anymore. On the other hand Felix gained more weight since everybody wants to give him treats!
