Herrrrrrrrrrrrre’s the “tail” of Remington Royce Glover by his human Lyn
“Remi actually picked me more than my picking him ( I thought I would prefer a female, but Remi had other ideas.) He stood out from all the other 18 puppies. I was so impressed with his focus on me, his responses and his wanting to interact and figure out what I was doing with him from the minute we met. Not to mention, he was absolutely adorable!!”
- a name for a male, means sweet and caring.
- loyal person with a true heart, a royce loves with their whole heart not letting anything back.
- knows how to make people happy without knowing they’ve done so.
- intelligent and a hard worker
- great charm, usually having beautiful eyes and a heart stopping smile
- the best thing that would happen to a person
- shake hands with his right paw
- high-five with his left paw
- bow to the Queen (me!)
- do the hokey pokey (turns in a circle)
- back up
- “stop, drop and roll”
- He knows most of his toys (and there are many) by name and can pick them out if asked – Caterpillar, gator, teddy, squirrel, snakey, piggy . . . .”
He is “toy” obsessed and will do anything for a stuffed toy. His favorite toy is his “caterpillar” which he carries everywhere, inside or out. He has an abundance of toys and knows most of them by name, but his “Catypillar” is definitely the one he prefers.
“Remi knows three of our neighbors by name and where they live. When we go outside, if I say, go see if “so and so” is home, Remi runs to their patio door and waits to see if they are there. They all love him and if they’re home, they open the door and let him in – they don’t let me in, but …….. (just kidding)”
Remi is certified by the AKC as a “Canine Good Citizen” and a Certified Therapy Dog
“Remi and I currently go to visit a Senior Care Facility every Friday morning – he absolutely loves it and the feedback we receive is that the residents just love seeing him and the other two smaller dogs that accompany us with their owner. It is so gratifying to see the seniors “light up” and spend time with the dogs. So many of them tell us stories of the dogs/pets they used to have and recall such lovely memories.”
“One resident was very disparaging when we first visited. She had never been around dogs and had nothing good to say to us, but we’re slowly winning her over. She now walks by and comments that the dogs are “very cute”. She still won’t come too close and refuses our offers to have her pet them, but we’re optimistic that will happen!”
“We are hoping to find a way to work with disabled veterans who have served our country and offer them whatever help and joy we can by visiting them at their rehab facility – it’s an ongoing goal for us and one I hope I can find a way to make happen.”
“Watching him makes me want to follow his lead and try to focus on making others happy, rather than worrying about “stuff” in my life.”
Hugs and love,
Lyn & Remi
