Astro is now family

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

I think this is how I won him over. :) He rolls over for his stomach and then flips over for the other side. I even brush his feet so I can keep touching his nails. SOMEDAY I plan on being able to cut his nails without my catcher's mask on. :bananaDance:

I mentioned it elsewhere, but wanted to tell everyone again:

When I feed the dogs, everyone has their own spot to stand and wait. Astro has learned that his is in the dog den. He gets fed last.

The other day, I bring his dish to him, bend down and place it on the floor. I then get this BIG SLURPY LICK on my face! I know many people don't want their dogs licking their faces, but this is a BIG STEP for him. Considering he had wanted to bite my face, previously. 8)

Sometimes he just shows no affect in his facial expressions. Like a statue. :( But this was a tail wagging, ears wiggling kind of kiss.
