5 months, awww I remember when Ruckus was just a chubby puppy.
To respond to your questions:
1. Ruckus does this in the mornings sometimes -- we will go for a walk then he will come inside, grab a toy and prance around like it's playtime. Yes, some bullies love walks. Ruckus will go on very long walks on the fall and winter when the weather is nice.
2. Ruckus is spoiled. Keith and I have a lot of wiggle room to work from home so Ruckus isn't alone a lot. We also take him everywhere, even on long road trips. (However, he is fine if we leave him home for the day while we're at work). The only time we've left him overnight with someone else a few times and one babysitter won't be asked back because they didn't clean his wrinkles correctly.
