Guinness is now Putter, and this three-year-old chocolate charmer is enjoying the holidays in his new forever home, where he already has his stocking hung by the chimney with care.

Putter’s new parents, Chip and Cathy, report that Putter is making himself right at home: “He’s ready for Santa to visit and hopes there are thousands of tennis balls under the tree for him to play with. He LOVES to retrieve, so no Christmas Ball Ornaments this year on the tree — he can’t seem to tell the difference between balls and ornaments. Putter is a great companion. He enjoys daily walks, chasing the squirrels and playing ball toss over at the school. He also enjoys all 6 of our grandchildren as well. He is a happy camper!”
