Mom says I am growing up and out...I now weigh almost 45 lbs!!! Mom says fortunately, I am my ancestor's boy and I am calm and level headed! And, for some reason, (NOT because Mom taught me, hehehe), I am a wonderful leash walker. I always keep the leash loose, and I usually stay on Mom's left side, except when I need to cross in front of her.
I am a bit of a jumper, BUT... I don't jump ON anyone, I just jump right straight up in the air in front of them, BOL! Works for me... some people don't realize I am NOT going to touch them and they get a bit nervous...hey, that is THEIR problem, not mine.
I was having a problem pooping in my crate during the night so Momsie moved it into her room. I have been clean ever since! I did think I was supposed to sleep on that warm water bed but Mom says so far I am too into chewing stuff that isn't mine and there are way, way too many things to destroy in the bedroom. Sure, sounds like an excuse to me!!
I do love playing with the other dogs here, especially Crystal and Lola. I also like to chase Zena and Riley and Barney when they run like crazy, but I am a bit nervous about them biting me... they never have but they do have SHARP teeth.
Speaking of teeth, Mom is surprised that I have NEVER used my teeth on anyone. I do put peoples hands in my mouth, BUT I never let my teeth touch their skin. Mom didn't teach me that, she says it must be from playing with Gemma so much. But, she did always move her hands when I was smaller so I couldn't try to bite them...maybe that worked???
BUT, I do have a MAJOR biting issue. You see, the girls at daycare toss a biscuit into my crate so I will run into it. That is okay, but once I am in, they hand me another one. Well, I must admit, I do get VERY grabby about those biscuits... sometimes too grabby and do meet a bit of skin on their hands. I did it to Mom the other day and she said NO MORE BISCUITS handed to me, they can only be tossed into my crate!!! That'll work, I guess???
Today was my day to have my Christmas photo taken... both Mom and Tonya were dreading that like CRAZY. I surprised them all, including myself, hehehe, and sat nicely on the table!!!! Mom said she will put them all up AFTER Thanksgiving!
