A Day with Achilles (pic heavy)

EDITED 8/10/2014 - Achilles has finally found his forever home! They love him so much.

I've known Achilles for a few months now. He was in sickbay for awhile, then adopted and returned for jumping over the fence.

He now sits in a kennel with another dog while waiting for his new home. This dog CAN jump!! He nearly flies.

I felt the poor guy needed a break from kennel life and Erik agreed. I picked him up around 9 am and this is how his day went:

Trying to impress Shannon the dog but she's is more interested in something on the floor.

 Splashing in the pool.

Following Trent around the house.

Watching TV with Shannon and Katrina.

Making friends with Shannon. He'd sometimes sneak in kisses when she'd walk by.

Helping Erik and Manny look for the perfect snack.

Resting on our bed.

Helping Shannon and Erik make dinner.

Cuddling with me, Shannon and Kat.

Pretending to me annoyed with me for taking his picture ALL DAY.

Going back to PACC and sitting on Erik's lap.

He was a great boy!! He didn't once try to jump out of the yard. However, he was NEVER out of my sight. Anytime anyone gets a new dog, they should always keep a leash on them while they're outside and never leave them alone.

 He got along with all the dogs. Even Manny! A small male chihuahua and Jack Russell mix.

The person that adopts him would be very lucky to have such a great dog.

The reason I did this is because he is a bit of a jumpy scary looking dog inside the kennel which turns people away. Outside of the kennel, he is just like a normal, well behaved dog. He does have some rude manners which can be quickly corrected with the right training or maybe even an older dog to gently show him the ways.

Splashing in the pool! I swear I've not seen little kids having as much fun in the pool. What a high energy dog.

Someone once said that pets aren't of the "get it and set it" variety. Meaning, unlike a vase, you don't just purchase it and put it in your house and call it good. With a pet you need to pay more attention to them and they have upkeep! It seems that Achilles needs more "setting" than some pets.
