Solo was rather smitten with Marlene when she first came for the weekend. He is an elegant dog with the longest legs Marlene has ever seen, and a matching long nose! Standing over Marlene he took her out to see cows and chickens for the first time and showed her how to run through the forest and search for deer to chase. A gentle giant, Solo and his fur-brother Boomer are Marlene’s friends for life in the country.
