Today was my lucky day as I was selected to take part in Dog's Day Out!!! Whoa - this was pretty exciting for me and I think that I put my best foot forward. I may not be the smartest dog at the shelter (I am clueless to basic commands such as sit, stay down). or maybe I have just forgotten what I was once taught. You see, I've been in a few shelters recently and am really hoping to find my forever home soon. I know that I would love to spend time with a loving family and learn all they had to teach me. I am a very lovable guy who loves attention and treats, so I should be know problem to train.
Now for today and how much fun we had -
Car rides are awesome!!! I bounced between the front seat and the back for a few minutes. Then settled down into my special spot - backseat right behind the driver. If you like to go for rides, I think I might be the dog for you.
In the house, I was as good as a dog could be. Not rude, not jumping on furniture - just plain good. I did sniff out the closet with dog toys and chews with no problem at all - FYI, I am part hound. When given a nice big bone that was of no interest to other dogs, I did show interest. Then got to thinking about being outdoors and decided that sitting at the door was where I should be - see I'm smarter then I gave myself credit for.
Outdoors was great. We went down in the backyard for a quick photo shoot. I pulled some, since being still is not what the great outdoors is supposed to be about. Finally we went for a walk on the Old Town bike path. Did you know Old Town is a game preserve and the smells are incredible. I went through times that I pulled quite a bit, but never out of control.
FYI - Here I am back at the shelter waiting for my forever home. If you are interested in a truly sweet dog that is looking to learn some basic commands, I may be the dog for you!!!
