The Puppy Formerly Known as Tolman

Tolman is now Lucas (Kaibab’s Journey To The Stars) and he is enjoying the summery winter of Phoenix with our long-time friends/family, Kay and Sue. Here is their wonderful report:

Our Lucas (Tolman) came home to Phoenix just a week ago. The other Sparklers seem to be very busy and Lucas is no exception. He loves to run full tilt and twirl in the air, then go off in another direction. He’s a very curious little guy and has inspected our house and yard thoroughly. Since he can disappear so quickly, it’s handy to have him come to his name. A pocket full of treats is enough incentive because he has a very good appetite. Lucas has taken all the new experiences and encounters in stride, even his adopted brothers Ruben and Micah. He has developed a good playing relationship with Micah but eight-year-old Ruben (Glitterati) is still evaluating the situation. I’d say Lucas is integrating into the pack very quickly and has added a spark as only a Sparkler can do.

A favorite toy is the metal article. In fact, all metal objects seem to be desirable.

Micah and Lucas seem to have developed a friendship based on a common love of toys.

Lucas intends to borrow Ruben’s cart someday.

Our neighbor (the other Claire) came over one evening for a visit.

Lucas loves to climb on the big rocks in the backyard. 

It seems no surface is too strange for him.

Lucas loves to practice his speedy recall.

Thanks to the Sparkler fans who supplied such great toys.

Great pictures!! What a cutie pie! I'm sure I'll be seeing him at a draft test. Love the picture of him with Micah paw-to-paw.

I am not surprised at all to see that Lucas is adjusting nicely. All the Sparklers are such bright, curious, and brave pups -- it's just wonderful to see their happy beginnings developing into interesting, joyful lives with good people. The Kaibab blog is good for the heart <3

I am so glad Lucas likes his bunny!

He's such a cutie pie and I love his new name - very clever!
