I love his name! I have been on a huge classical music kick the last few months, and I keep thinking why, why, why did I name my dog Gryphon? I had such a hard time coming up with names, I had never even thought to get inspiration from some of my favorite composers or poets!

Well, with a December 19th birthday.....look out. Could be trouble ahead!!! (Just kidding, that's my birthday!). Very cute.
Was wondering do they actually play together? I know a puppy is different, but although Sunny is around many standards, some who really want to play, he wants no part of it --- yet, if he is around smaller dogs, he starts to get "into it" more.
Yes they do play together. Lily does all sorts of soliciting bows to him. They play "tag." They also take each others toys and so far nobody has had any hurt feelings about the toys. They share them very well, which is funny for me to see. For Lily and Peeves I always buy two the same of every toy, but of course each of them only wants what the other one has. No a don't want any ball, I only want the ball Peeves has! They each have one or two things that are strictly their own, but mostly for things we have more than one of the only one that matters is the one that is already in action.
December 19th was his four month day. He is fully vaccinated so now we are starting to work on nice leash manners. My mom finds he is easily distracted by all kinds of things and so I plan to give her Lily to walk (since it is really hard to not have her heel, I am working on a "free" command to let her know she can do anything as long as leash stays loose, but she doesn't seem to want it). I will take Wolfie and work on keeping him moving and not pulling so she can see what to do on her own. The last time my mom had to walk a puppy was when I was five and my brother was two (he just turned 50!), so given how long ago that was and the fact that she also had me and baby bro in tow with the puppy (a beagle) she is justifiably in a quandry about the loose leash.
