Broadway in Virginia

I can tell that there will be LOTS of photo ops. with our new friend Broadway Bark. This big, SOLID, fellow, is so friendly !, And he seems to be up for anything!
During our first walk he wanted to climb all the snow banks- making us think he must be a New Yorker ( & familiar with snow) rather than a Florida boy.
I do have a confession though- when we told Will that his name was Broadway Bark- Will started calling him "Bart" so now we are all calling him "Bart"- sorry.
"Bart" is a very confident boy.
Toys and video games that make loud odd noises are interesting to him-

and on occasion we even catch him watching television.
I don't have a picture of it yet, but as the kids were playing Wii- and flailing their arms around- instead of being afraid, "Bart" was right there in the middle of them leaning up against them and asking to be petted.
He did WONDERFULLY on our trip to PetCO yesterday charming everyone he met-we predict he will be a STELLAR Meet and Greet ambassadog (but it still takes a little convincing to actually get him into the car).
I think it is pretty obvious that he has no personal space issues (though Hero does not seem thrilled about the idea of having a room mate :).- The silly boy just followed Hero into his crate.
He has started hoarding toys, and will pick up the toys we throw for him and stash them in his (or Hero's) crate. I bet in time this will be a greyhound that actually plays fetch!

Did I mention that he is a BIG Goofy boy?

If you think "Bart" is the dog for you and your family please contact VAGA
