Born in November 2008, Cleo is a wonderful dog and gentle and affectionate with her family. When one of her family comes home, she seems to actually smile and sometimes prances about like a horse at play. She loves the water and likes to go for daily swims in the lake every day during the summer. She will also plop down in a large puddle if one is available. She likes to be outside and will lounge in the sun till she's panting and then come in for a break. She is not a licker but likes to be rubbed and petted and she likes to sleep in the bed When offered a treat, she licks her nose like a snake until you give her the treat. She is afraid of the vacuum and rapidly retreats to her favorite closet when it comes out. She has been an inside/outside dog through a doggie door which she learned very quickly. She is athletic and loves to run in open spaces. She is also a roamer and needs a fence. Cleo is housebroken and would prefer to be an only dog.
