|Rajah, Eddie's new friend|
After a lengthy search, my friends Margaret and Peter, whose lovely old dog Sam passed away at my home in June 2011, have found the right companion to share their home.

Rajah arrived at their home October 7th for a two week trial period, which he passed with flying colours. Eddie and I went for a walk with him around Chemainus Lake about a week ago, in the pouring rain. Today, we had a more pleasant walk at Echo Heights, on a cool but dry fall day.

He has lovely dog-social skills, and walks beautifully on leash unless he scents a deer or spies a cat - he is apparently quite prey driven and believes cats are evil.
|Allie: He thinks cats are evil? |
What ever would give him THAT idea?
But Eddie is quite content to spend time with him, so we anticipate many hours of enjoyable walks and hikes together.

On the trail in Echo Heights
Welcome to the island, Rajah. You are one very fortunate and already well-loved dog.
Congratulations, Margaret and Peter, on the latest addition to your family.
