How do I behave while I'm at the Littlefield home? Well, very well. Here are just a few of the things I've done on my visits:
v Walks - I love walks. At first the Littlefield's were timid about bringing me where there would be other people and dogs. But once they got over their fear, every thing has been great. I am always very curious around other dogs. I have not done any nose to nose with them, but I did have a dog come charging at me wanting to play. The Littlefield's were very nervous - I was very curious and kind of wanted to meet this dog. Then we saw a puppy and let it pass us while I sat and watched. Of course the Mrs. got to talking and I wanted to continue walking. I had seen enough of that little dog, but on our return I wanted to see more of her. Then came the runner and we just sat and watched. Oh did I mention the deer on the bike path that would not leave or the skunk in the back yard? Well, I was extra good and all it took was a little jerk of the leash and I followed in the other direction.
v Treats - what can a dog say? They are the best!!! They give them to me and sometimes take them away. I think this is a test and I think I pass it all the time. I would love to play the tug game, but they are not keen on this game. Now when they say out, I realize that they don't mean tug.
v Sleep - I love my naps. I have also recently been spending some nights, which I really like. I normally will sleep on the blanket on the floor, but recently have been invited to sleep on the couch. I love curling up next to her and being patted, but I am not obnoxious about it. Although I'm affectionate, I am not a kisser.
