I would say you are safe in trusting Janice. She is really great. Knuckles (now Mason) is doing really great. He is about 99% house trained and him and Mia are best buddies. They follow each other everywhere, play great together and sleep together. We have had him for two weeks and he is already getting big. If his paws are any inclination of his size then I would say he's going to be a BIG boy. I will take your advice on the food for him. I attached some great pictures of him, him and Mia and him and I. He's really sweet and loves just hanging on the couch with me (when him and Mia aren't being maniacs). He also gets along great with my two cats. They were a little nervous about him at first, but he is gentle and walks up to them slowly without chasing them so they like him now too.
