Arrival Story:
Driving home from work one night to our new home, I realized I had a yard...space available, and even though it's kind of small, I thought it would be better than a concrete floor for a shelter dog, so I went to Pets.com and found my Hankers, the next day I found him at Petsmart at an adoption fair. luckily he was still there. The sweetest little fluffypuppy I'd met in a long time.

He was very timid at first until he met his back yard and grass! HE LOVES GRASS, he rolls and rolls and rolls in it. He was a stray at large on his adoption papers, but now he's in his forever home.

Well, I'm gifted. I do things that they ask, I don't fight or argue, I just do it...it's easier that way. I've never been to dog school, a dog teacher, whatever, not my style, I can save a lot of time and effort just by listening and agreeing. So one night, my Katie took me to a nice lady's house. They gave her a towel at the door to wipe my paws, and kept me basically in the entry way the whole time on a nice rug. It was rainy out, but I'd been so busy that day I hardly noticed. Rain makes me frizz. The ladies were nice about this because my coat was blowing out too with the change of seasons...I can't help it, just does, try controlling your hair growth by sheer will alone right? well, Sit, walk, lay down, touch my ears, tail, feet, all that went really smoothly and then it was time for the sit stay and my Katie was really nervous because we hadn't ever really worked on that, but I could see in her eyes that it was important....she said sit, then gave a hand command that I was pretty sure meant SIT VERY STILL.....so I did, she walked to the back wall of the house, admired the lady's garden, and came back a few minutes later...I didn't budge....then they gave me a yellow vest. On the way home that night, my Katie patted my shoulder so much it got kind of sore but I knew she was "so dang proud!!!" she kept saying, whatever, I'm gifted and now we can go do more sit stays with other people in my stylin' yellow vest.
