I recieved a call the other day to check on Walter. You actually named him Walter Cronkite, but my 5 year old son preferred Walter. We adopted him in mid August. And he is a love and has a new best friend, our 6 mo old Boxer Puppy Jake. They play constantly. Sometimes too much. Jake loves his friend Walter. He is doing great, he is a super love.. We are so glad he is part of our family.
