found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Not only that, when I come into a person’s home I display proper manners – unlike some of those less fortunates who never received a good education in etiquette. What are good manners, you ask? Well, it is all the basic stuff, I’m sure you understand; chew only on dog items, rest in the dog bed and not on the furniture, food on counters and tables belongs to someone else, don't bark unless you have something really important to say, share bones and toys when asked and, of course the big one, the commode is outside, not inside. Of course, there are some things that are simply out of my control – like shedding, it happens OK? People need to learn to get a brush and deal with it. The other thing is squirrels … they are absolutely fascinating, intriguing, captivating and suck a dog in like a black hole does space debris. I really don’t expect humans to relate, it’s a dog thing, we can’t help it, it’s in the genes. When my folks allow, I love to play fetch, mostly in the house though because … you know … there are squirrels outside so it’s very, very hard to stay focused.
My humans are helping out with my continuing education and I have graduated to Sit, Wait and Come on the deck. Come is a little difficult, but Romulus and Remus were not raised in a day, so it will just take some time. They are also helping with my focus; again, it takes time but the rewards are, though not long lasting, very tasty. At night, my lady has her tea while I settle down in my crate with my peanut butter Kong bedtime snack (and any treats that have been secreted in the crate when I wasn’t looking). I would rather be with people, and do let my opinion be known by fussing a bit when left alone. I would love to find another dog of my size to engage in play.
