Likes:
Chasing anything that moves, playing tug of war, running, swimming, playing, being loved and scratched.

Pet-Peeves:
He does not like any lights on when he is ready for bed, he has to know everything that's going on, he has to be the center of attention, he cant stand it when anyone is sad or crying, he'll cuddle with you and push his nose under your hand

Favorite Toy:
Anything tough like the Nylabones and Kong items he can chew like crazy on, & anything that has a squeeker in it, but only until he can get the squeeker out, then he has no use for it.

Favorite Food:
Any treats he might get

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere

Best Tricks:
Sit, stay, shake, stand, no drink, okay drink, and Im teaching him how to talk like a human at the moment.

Arrival Story:
Technically Day-Day is my 15 year old son's puppy. Unfortunately, my son claims I took over his puppy. That is not the case however. August 2012, my son was working at the Bossier City Animal Control. He called me & begged me to keep a puppy a lady had brought in. My first reaction was NO WAY, ABSOLUTELY NOT! Reason being, I already have 1 older black lab, 1 six year old chocolate lab, & a 6 year old boxer. Plus we have 6 cats, & a rabbit. Almost all of our animals are rescue animals, or a few are ones their previous owners promised me they would come back and get them, but never did. So, needless to say, I already had my hands full. The costs of food, & things like vet visits etc. were already very hard financially, plus giving them all the attention, love, & exercise can be a huge challenge. Actually the love is never a challenge. Anyway, when I went to go pick him up, he was holding the puppy, & I immediately gave in. He was the cutest puppy I had ever seen. The lady who brought him to the shelter was actually trying to save his life. She lived in another city where they do not have a shelter, & because of that, none of the shelters here were willing to keep him alive. She had found her mother beating him on their front porch. I had never had a puppy since all of my animals were all older when they were rescued. I gave in & we took him home. I noticed he was not weaned from his mother yet, but he was chubby and healthy. I took him to a vet & they said he was about 5 weeks old. I was suprised because he was so big. So, we bottle fed him with puppy formula until we were able to wean him off the bottle until he was about 10 weeks old. He was very easy to potty train. I just felt there was something very special about him. I hired a personal trainer, who actually comes to your home & even gets everything down to science & math. He tells you exactly what his personality is, how to discipline without creating fear, how to reward properly, how to give them commands with proper wording & proper body language, so your dog fully understands you & so he knows you're the boss. Great mental stimulation too. Day-Day is super intelligent, and you have to keep him busy 24/7. He doesn't miss a thing. He makes me laugh because he sleeps on his back. His tail is really long. Most people say he's a pretty dog, he's about a couple years old right. When i tell them no, he's just a puppy, only 6 months old; people ate floored. I get all kinds of funny reactions. I don't know how many people ask me if they can have him. No way, he's family. He's already bigger than my full grown boxer. Since I've had Day-Day, I have never seen my boxer so happy. They are best buddies, they play all the time. So, he is a joy, & we couldn't be more happy to have him in our family.

He can now say, "I want it", for a treat. I love you. He loves to give a high 5. It's so cute.
