Yesterday was an exciting day! My person's sister and her sons came to visit us.
I really love those boys! They know exactly how to appreciate such a fabulous dog like me. I was quite liberal with my special kisses and they didn't tell me to go away. Wow!
I got over-excited when they were playing with the yoga ball and startled everyone with my intimidating, German Shepherd "hey I wanna play too!" bark. Uh oh.
I haven't had a lot of exposure to just a couple of kids playing so close to me without me being able to join in. I can watch a bunch of kids playing at the playground or skateboarding around the skate park without getting so excited.
Both boys helped with my training by playing gently with the ball while my person gave me treats for watching them play without getting excited. Later, they played a little more with the ball and I did great! My person was so happy to have a chance to have trustworthy kids to work with on this. Kids like this are not easy to find. We're so lucky that her nephews are such excellent people!
And guess what? The boys are both going to create and name a special scooter trick and a special skateboard trick and name them after me!
My person's sister loved on me, too! Can you believe it? So many new fans. (I'm really not surprised, but I'm trying to be modest. BOL! )
I was very disappointed to see them go. I moped a bit and then took a nap. When I woke up, I was ready for mischief and my person had to play with me a lot with my toys. She needed to lighten up. I'm very good at helping with that, as you have no doubt already noticed.
Today, our special friend is coming to visit. He doesn't know it, but my person and her mother have a list of things for him to help do while he's here. Good thing he has me to play with in between the tasks they want to him accomplish. I'm like a mini-vacation.
