  1. D'Elle- I think we should have named after chocolate manufacturer as we seriously don't know what we'll get day to day. Now, we rarely ever hear Master Toby barking but last night my daughter was watching this youtube video and he instantly got alert from his comatose position in the crate, ears up and started barking. He then proceeded to the front of the crate and starts barking, looking around him. We were all really surprised when he leaves the crate and proceeds to walk around the living room through the house as if looking for something. Occasionally stopping to bark. And so it was for
  2. D'Elle- A doggy door is not an option at this time. I can get him out of the crate by putting on his leash, giving a gentle tug and saying "Let's go" .

My niece chose him as he was the easiest to handle on leash and was so sweet and allowed her to hug him during their first meeting.
