I have been enjoying my time and know my foster sisters and peoples have enjoyed having me too. They keep telling me I’m a really good boy. I know basic commands and listen very very well. I am calm in the house and yard and play nicely if you happen to throw a ball in either place. If I do happen to bark at something I think you should be alerted to, I am proud that it only takes a little “shhhh” to tell me it’s okay.
As many times as I ask, my foster parents don’t allow me on the bed. They say it’s to give the other dogs something special. So, I wait ‘til the peoples are gone, he he he. Note to self: remember to take your favorite toys with you when you jump down so you don’t get busted. Note to self 2: If you do forget, don’t try and sneak them off the bed while momma’s watching because you’ll only make her laugh. By the way, I do get to sit on the dog chair in the living room, so it isn’t that rough.
The other dogs let me sleep on their beds or with them at night; how great is that? There’s a big bed in the car, so we all cuddle up there too. Come to think of it, I like cuddling anywhere.
I can be a little shy when meeting new people. If I’m unsure, I’ll offer my paw. I am quick to warm up and will roll over on my side for a belly rub. My foster mom says I have the cutest face, and everyone I meet agrees.
We’ve been on a few walks, and I walk better when I wear a harness. At first, I’m real eager to see what’s new but settle down to a nice pace. I may pull a bit if I see a bunny or a squirrel, but not for long and not too bad. I love sitting on the porch and or looking out a window whenever I can.
I went to the vet the other day. I warmed up to her faster when she gave me peanut butter during my exam. I behaved perfectly while she gave me shots and took some blood for tests. I was told I need to lose a couple of pounds, but who doesn’t? I’m stocky…check the pictures! The vet found an intestinal bug, so I took medicine for that (not fun, but I was a trooper). I just need to wait a few weeks to make sure it’s gone. When that’s confirmed I can be adopted.
I’m not sure what the perfect home would be. I like having dogs around, but I also like a lot of attention and will come over and sometimes kinda gently push myself in if someone else is getting some. If the peoples tell me it is so-and-so’s time for lovin’ it’s not a big deal, I just wait my turn, then. If there is another dog in my new home, being laid back is always a good thing.
