Today I went to the park. So much fun! (I don't pull on the leash as bad now, thanks to patient training, courtesy of my mistress.) Lots of smells, dogs, and things to explore. I got to run, leave my mark on a few things, and meet a Yorkie (all on leash, of course). Mistress did kinda turn it into a little bit of a training sesson by telling me to "sit" and "stay" several times. I did pretty good too! By the way, I now know "come", "laydown", "sit", "stay", "up" (jump up on something), and "down" (get off). Hmmm...that's six tricks...and I've only been living for almost two weeks! I'm pretty smart, eh? Once I get the basics down, mistress will teach me fun tricks,like the ones Cookie knows. Cookie gets a little ticked off at me because I aggrivate her (without usually meaning to), but she's nice besides that. I will say one more thing before going. Some people say that Shelties almost seem to teach themselves some tricks. Well, I guess I'm like a purebred Sheltie in that way! Mistress had to do almost nothin', zilch, nodda to teach me to "stay" and "up" and "down". (And I did NOT know these tricks whe she first got me, honest.)
P.S. I have replaced Cookie as mistress's dad's therapy dog. Not that Cookie didn't do a good job. She just wasn't interested in him like I am.
