WHY WAS DON GREAT?

 

When he first arrived in Croatia from Finland, he was very happy to meet us and to move in his new home, without any sorrow for his mother, brother and sisters ...

As a puppy, Don was full of love for any creature, even for mad big dogs who sometimes attacked him ...

When he saw a dead animal, he would realise that something was wrong with itand would look at us with question and fear in his eyes: What happened to it? Why do I feel afraid?

He simply knew who was a friend, who was just passing by, who was dangerous ...
He was always a friend with anyone, never attacked anyone except two burglers who wanted to rob us one night in the park ... he liked even postmen and vets (he was at surgery once and during his last sickness he was visiting vets very often), but before and after every intervention he liked to show to the vet that he was still happy to meet him ...

He was very gentle with children and pups, liked to play with them and to teach them how to play ...

He was never barking except when playing with other dogs, and it was more spiking than barking ...

He was going unleashed through the streets of Zagreb, he knew well how to behave, to cross streets safely (we've shown him only once how to cross the street!)

He was eating olives and allways puting out pips by himself ...

He never used to sleep on the bed because it was to soft for him, but when I broke my leg and had to stay in bed, he was with me in the bed day by day, going out only to make his things and only at my request ...

When we were outside, he never ate or drank, but when we come back home, he immediately started drinking to celebrate our arrival ...
etc.
