He is cute!  We think he is cuter than cats, and is definetly more friendly and close than cats!  He is so excited seeing us every morning and after work in the afternoon.  It takes about a few minutes to cool him down!  Yeah, Symphony too!  Opus is not housebroken yet (fall, 1998)!  We have to watch the time and hint him regularly, but sometimes we miss!  He has learned the same tricks as Symphony has, waiting for permission when we prepare his food and walking slowly to the food, then completely ignores the food!  He likes food when it's in your hand!  He also knows to give you five, but always followed by another five, then play with you!
