I picked up Sweet Lou in Denver after a snowstorm. He was eight weeks old and weighed 14 pounds! He settled in amazingly well in his new situation and cried only once during the first night. Since then, Louie has become a wonderful ambassador of the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog breed: he is supremely gentle, fun-loving, and best of all, amazingly sensitive and careful around kids and elderly people. We have therapy dog goals in our near future. Our friends ask us when we're leaving town next so they can have him for a while. We are in love with Louie and feel so fortunate that he is not only loved by us, but by so many others!
