Willie loves to talk! He is about five years old, but still has puppy energy! He is strong. He loves to stand up and give hugs with both paws around the neck of the human he is hugging. He loves the fresh rain falling on him and he absolutely adores the snow! He would rather lay outside in a snow storm than anything else. I call that "Willie weather"! He loves to "catch" the stream of water if you spray him with a garden hose--yet he hates baths! This guy loves to be outside and thrives on it!
